Coming Soon: Maximum Impact

The ensemble actioner has had a bit of a resurgence in recent years mostly in part to the success of The Expendables. There are several in development but I think Maximum Impact sounds like it could be a lot of fun.

With a cast that includes Kelly Hu, Danny Trejo, Mark Dacascos, Matthias Hues and Eric Roberts and direction fromĀ Andrzej Bartkowiak (Exit Wounds, Romeo Must Die) this is a project to keep an eye on.

This is not to be confused with Ultimate Justice which has several of the same cast members.

 

 

PLOT: The US State Secretary arrives on a secret summit in Moscow, in order to dissipate the tension between Russia/American relations. However, the world faces the threat of World War III when a leader of an international terrorist group organizes the assassination of the US State Secretary and kidnaps his granddaughter. Despite their differences, the CIA and FSB must unite to save humanity.

I got this synopsis from IMDB so I’m not entirely sure that it isn’t a rough translation from Russian but you get the idea of the story.

Check out a few set photos which we’ve found through Matthias Hues’ Instagram.
