Cung Le Joins Savage Dog

As if director Jesse Johnson’s latest, Savage Dog, didn’t have enough action star power, it appears he’s left room for another in the line-up with the addition of retired UFC fighter Cung Le. Zaror posted the pic you see beneath less than a day ago, signaling Le’s arrival which now totals it to four with pound-for-pound star Scott Adkins and actress and martial artist JuJu Chan also starring.

Plot details are certainly nil while all we have is what Bleiberg Entertainment’s Cannes poster hints at: A story set in Indochina in 1959, a land beyond rule and a time without mercy, and the birth of a legend….

 

…And that’s it. That’s all we get so far while everything else is a big mystery, except we simply have to trust that with the venerable Johnson at the helm following a stellar and progressive career in stunts and action movies easily readable at IMDb along with the reunion of Adkins and Zaror since going toe-to-toe in Undisputed 3: Redemption (2010) and the likes of Le with credits in Puncture Wounds (2014) and The Man With The Iron Fists (2012) and Chan fresh off of co-starring in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword Of Destiny (2016), that Savage Dog will be a beast of an action flick yet.

Arriving to set! 5:30am! Let’s rock and roll!! @cungle185 #livingingratitude #savagedog
