For fans of the Filipino Actioner Maria from filmmaker Pedring Lopez will have much to celebrate as it is being revealed that his latest female centric action epic GI from his BlackOps Studios Asia and Psyops8 Productions Banner has been recently acquired by Blu Fox Entertainment. A big draw to this one is that Lopez is throwing in some Indonesian flavor and it will feature The Raid and John Wick 3 ass kickers Cecep Arif Rahman and Yayan Ruhian in prominent roles.
The news comes courtesy of the European Film Market virtual event and this one sounds pretty cool and it says it’s related to the same universe of assassins that takes place in Maria which is a definite draw for fans.
Maria which was acquired by Netflix a few years back was a standout female led assassin thriller that really packed a punch so I’m excited to see what Lopez has up his sleeves with this new project. This project has been in the works for some time do it’s very satisfying to see some traction on it. Lopez is helming the long awaited sequel from a script he also wrote.
Casting is still underway and the lead actress is still being ironed out. When official news breaks and we know who will be the star, you’ll see it here.
Check out our review of Maria below and watch an exciting action clip from the film to show you what we are in store for with GI!
