Interview with Director Scott Mann

In 2009 Scott Mann made his full length feature film debut directing the underrated gem The Tournament starring Kelly Hu, Scott Adkins, Ving Rhames and Robert Carlisle.

Considering its modest budget I was blown away by how great the action scenes were and it remains one of the best action movies of recent years.

Scott has recently completed his newest feature entitled Heist (Bus 657 as it is called in some territories) and he stopped by The Action Elite and chatted with Eoin and Alex about working with such a fantastic cast.

 

We also discussed The Tournament 2 and potential avenues for a sequel; for the record a TV series is the most likely.

Mann also chats about the “joys” of working with Ving Rhames and the notoriously hard to work with Bruce Willis.

Check out our exclusive podcast interview with Scott below.
