The Dolph Lundgren Movie that Never Happened

While scouring the internet for something to write about I stumbled upon this fascinating story about a movie called ‘Le Tigre’ which was set to be directed by Andrzej Zulawski, creator of 80’s movie ‘Posession’. Dolph Lundgren was also prepared to star and the movie sounds like all sorts of awesome.

Check out the synopsis below: 

The year is 1954. In the last days of the French colonization of Viet Nam, three soldiers face defeat in battle, a terrifying escape, and an incredible adventure. LE TIGRE tells the story of Alain, a young recruit, Max, an American Intelligence Officer, and Crion, a French captain. Captured by the Vietnamese after the fall of Dien Bien Phu, they are forced on a 500-mile death march. Against all odds, they escape into the jungle, and begin a battle for survival.

Their journey takes them to a village where they will encounter a different kind of danger. When a man-eating tiger attacks, the villagers believe the war is bringing death to them. They convince the three strangers that it is their responsibility to kill the tiger. And so the hunt begins… combining unparalleled action, fascinating characters, and a strange and moving love story, LE TIGRE is a motion picture of primal force and adventure like none ever experienced before.


There was apparently various problems with financing and other production issues and sadly the film never materialized. You can read the full story over at Drafthouse.
