Fans looking for bloody action fare to crave their appetites for extreme action won’t have to look far as filmmaker Ranjeet S. Marwa’s newest project looks like it’ll fit in just nicely. The new film is called Exiled: The Chosen Ones and it has Headshot and The Night Comes for Us star Sunny Pang front and center in what looks like a very bloody reimagining and twist of the classic A Most Dangerous Game. A new teaser trailer and subsequent poster has been issued to give audiences a taste of what’s to come so by all means, check it out below!
After a man-made virus failed to reduce the world’s overpopulated areas, global leaders would start a new program that would legitimize a new venture in a game show. The game would be broadcast live, where random contestants would be exiled into a concrete jungle, forced to kill each other for their freedom. Viewers would place their bets on who had a chance at survival. Be that as it may…no one survives the game.
Marwa definitely has a unique vision here and if this one is like his other offerings in the past then genre viewers are in for one wild and extreme ride. Marwa is also known for the documentary COVID-19: The Impact on Asian Cinema which highlighted the effects the virus has had on the industry.
Other cast members include Hannah Al-Rashid, Nick Khan and Oka Antara. Marwa , who penned the script as well, also has the action pics Blood Rush and Traced waiting in the wings as well so the future is looking real good for the British born filmmaker.
The movie wrapped principle photography last month so it’s still early to talk about a release but hopefully the wait won’t be too long as I’m looking for all things action drenched. From the early footage below, Marwa has definitely put a new creative spin on the tried and true plot of victims hunting one another in hopes to be the last one standing.
Pang’s finale fight with Iko Uwais in Headshot remains one of my favorites to this day so I can’t wait to see him dish it out for a whole film. He will without a doubt surpass that memorable throw down in that movie so can’t wait to check this one out. If anything, Pang certainly finds a new and lethal use for a hammer.
Check out the new teaser below and see what awaits!
