Iko Uwais and Rhonda Rousey Join Mile 22

This project is sounding rather interesting; The Raid series star Iko Uwais and UFC fighter Rhonda Rousey will be joining Mark Wahlberg in actioner Mile 22, to be produced by Peter Berg.

SYNOPSIS: A CIA agent (Wahlberg) stationed in Indonesia who is tasked with transporting a compromised informant from the center of the city to an awaiting getaway plane at an airport 22 miles away. While en route, they must battle corrupt police, criminal overlords and heavily armed locals, all hell-bent on taking them out before they reach their plane.

 

 

Producer Peter Berg talked about the pair stating “I am a huge fan of what Gareth (Evans) and Iko did on both ‘Raid’ films, and I’m very excited at the possibility of working with Ronda and Iko to create a film in the spirit of this new wave of combat cinema emerging from Indonesia. Ronda and Iko will be a very unique and powerful team.”

Well you can count me in; not entirely sure about Rhonda’s acting ability but there’s no denying she can kick all kinds of ass and it sounds like there will be some fantastic action scenes so stau tuned for more info on Mile 22.
