UPDATE: We have some fresh new images for Vincent Zhao’s upcoming military Actioner Counter Strike courtesy of Asian Film Strike and you can see them below!
I mentioned before that the film is currently in production so hopefully we get some more news and footage of the one sooner rather than later. I’m a fan of Zhao and can’t wait to see how he does with a contemporary military action film. Stay tuned!
(Original Post) In the last 20 years or so Vincent Zhao has definitely become a household name to genre fans everywhere having starred in countless martial arts and action films and television. The mainstay certainly has been busy throughout the years and now he readies himself to not only star in a new military Actioner but he will also direct as well.
The news comes via City on Fire and Asian Film Strike and the star who is best known for films like True Legend, Kung Fu League and The Blade will make his directorial debut with Counter Attack which is being described as a military action film in the vein of Wu Jing’s Wolf Warrior and the highly successful Operation Red Sea. No pressure there to outshine those films so we will see.
The film is now in production and it will also feature Jiang Yiyi (Once Upon a Time in Shanghai) and Lu Peng (The Destiny of White Snake).
No other info is available on the project so keep it locked and loaded right here for more details to come in the future!
