Details on Seagal’s The Asian Connection


There seems to be a new Steven Seagal film every fifteen minutes these days but one of his upcoming projects entitled The Asian Connection sounds particularly interesting.

The plot is about two American expatriates, Jack and Sam, who unwittingly steal a drug lord’s money when they rob a series of banks in Southeast Asia and become the target of the gang’s vengeance.

When Sam is killed, Jack turns to the love of his life, Pom, and the couple becomes a modern-day Bonnie and Clyde that takes the fight to the gang.


The movie is directed by Daniel Zirilli with a cast that includes Steven Seagal, Johnny Lee, Michael Jai White, Pim Bubear, Byron Gibson, Dean Alexandrou, Eoin O’Brien, Ron Smoorenburg, Nick Khan, Kecha Khamphakdee, Natalie Lorence, Alex Winters, David Gray,Sahajak Boonthanakit, Byron Bishop and Sahajak Boonthanakit.

Storywise that doesn’t sound like your average Seagal flick as there is no mention of an Ex-CIA character (so far) but the supporting cast is also interesting especially the recent addition of Michael Jai White and Tom Sizemore.

I’m also intrigued that there is someone called Eoin in the cast; I hear people with that first name are incredibly good looking and talented.

The story  was written by Daniel Zirilli with a script from Glase Lomond.

Check out the teaser poster below.
