Here’s some cool news that I wanted to actually share but with the holidays and a slew of interviews I’m working on, it got pushed back a little but need coming from the official Facebook page has it on good authority that TRUY SAT’S Maria Tran is ready to tackle her directorial debut with the new action-thriller Echo 8.

Along with helming the pic, Tran will also headline opposite Takashi Hara and David Vuong and the page also release some awesome new character posters as well which you can view below!

According to the Facebook post, principle photography is set to take place in January in Sydney, Australia. The film will be a production via Tran’s Phoenix Eye production banner.

Per Facebook:

🎞 ECHO 8; Independent action film set in Western Sydney!🎞

With less than 3 weeks till principal photography, we are pleased to release the teaser concept poster of our shoot.

This will be Maria Tran’s directorial debut of an actioneer and a shoe string budget production but with an amazing cast & crew.

This production is fueled by the input of the independent artist community of Sydney and with the contributions of our international talents and it feels great to just make films because we can!

Special thanks to all those people, groups, organisations who have helped us get this far.
