The impressive cast includes Michael Biehn (Terminator, Aliens, The Rock), Anderson Silva, Krzysztof Soszynski (Here Comes The Boom), Martin Kove (The Karate Kid, (Rambo), Lyoto Machida, Cody Hackman, Jess Brown and Nick Bateman (Hobo With A Shotgun).

Tapped is also written and directed by Allan Ungar with story contributions by Cody Hackman and Jerry Buteyn.
