The Hollywood Reporter has dropped the hammer on a new action project that will reunite action stars Scott Adkins and Dolph Lundgren for a rousing fifth time. The movie which hails from an original screenplay by Daylight’s End scribe Chad Law and Howlers director Josh Ridgway is titled Section Eight and we got the lowdown for you below!
The film will be helmed by Christian Sesma (Every Last One of Them) and “will tell the story of a former soldier who, after avenging the murder of his family, is sprung from prison and recruited by a shadowy government agency.”
This will be the fifth time that Adkins and Lundgren will go toe to toe as the two action heavyweights have tangled in the past action movies The Expendables 2, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, and Legendary and will also engage in combat in the upcoming Castle Falls which is currently in post production.
Starring in the movie along with Adkins and Lundgren is Ryan Kwanten who starred in the hit HBO series True Blood as well as the 2018 thriller The Hurricane Heist.
Adkins will next be seen in the one take, real time actioner One Shot which hits VOD on November 5th. Adkins is currently filming John Wick: Chapter 4 and recently wrapped filming on the Netflix action-horror film The Day Shift alongside Jamie Fox.
Lundgren is currently filming the highly anticipated fourth Expendables film and is also ready to appear once again in the DC sequel Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom with Jason Momoa.
