As an action genre super fan, I am always vigilant on all things pertaining to action maestro Jesse V. Johnson. The one time stunt master turned director has unleashed some of the best the genre has to offer incluidng Savage Dog, Accident Man, Triple Threat and now his latest endeavor which reunites hime with his Pit Fighter star Dominiquie Vandenberg. The film, once titled Legion Maxx, is now called The Mercenary and it stars Vandenberg in the hard hitting tale of a soldier looking for redemption and having to kill a lot of people to get it.
Vandenberg recently posted the news on social media that the movie would be delayed from an initial summer release to help promote it a little better and now we have official confirmation that it will debut in the UK at the Fighting Spirit Film Festival. Check out the announcement below!
Starring along with Vandenberg is the always dependable Louis Mandylor who has also worked with Johnson on The Debt Collector and Avengement.
Along with The Mercenary, the FSFF will also host a special screening of Jackie Chan’s classic martial arts epic Dragons Forever also starring the legendary Sammo Hung which will screen at the evnt for charity.
The FSFF will run on September 7th and 8th at the Stratford East Picture House in London. For all ticket info visit the official website here!
