Dolph Talks ‘Skin Trade’

Dolph Lundgren posted on the Official Skin Trade Facebook Page the other day where he discusses how the film is “very special” to him.

He said: ‘Hi, this is Dolph Lundgren. Welcome to our new FB site. I just wrapped principal photography on the action-thriller SKIN TRADE, after shooting for 10 weeks in Bangkok and Vancouver, B.C.

This picture is about human trafficking and is very special to me. I started working on the script 7 years ago, after reading a news story about a van full of girls that were to be smuggled from Mexico to the United States. The van was left by the traffickers along the border and all the thirty girls inside died from heat stroke and suffocation.

I have two young daughters myself and I felt that this is a story that has to be told. I used that incident as inspiration for a scene in SKIN TRADE, a film produced by Mike Selby, Craig Baumgarten and myself.’

Skin Trade Synopsis: After his family is killed by a Serbian gangster with international interests. NYC detective Nick goes to S.E. Asia and teams up with a Thai detective to get revenge and destroy the syndicates human trafficking network.
