Principal photography has officially wrapped on the upcoming action pic King Of Killers starring Alain Moussi and Frank Grillo. Moussi has his hands full in this one as he plays an elite killer who takes on the best assassins in the world in a deadly tournament where only one can be left standing.
Moussi celebrated the occasion with a new image from the film of him opening fire with a pair of pistols Hong Kong action style. Check out the picture below!
The film is being directed by Underworld story creator and star Kevin Grevioux. Aside from creating several of the characters in the Underworld franchise, Grevioux also starred in the original as one of the Lycans called Raze.
In the film, Moussi will play a “hitman who reluctantly takes part in a $10m assassin competition in Tokyo in order to save his daughter’s life.” Besides helming the film, Grevioux also wrote the screenplay as well.
In a past article for Screen Daily, Moussi described the new project as “fresh and fun” and also stated that “Kevin has a brilliant vision for the action and visual style of King Of Killers and the first-class KOK team is passionate about bringing that vision to life.”
I’ve been looking forward to this one since it was first announced back in February of last year so it’s great to finally hear that production is complete. The film is based on a graphic novel of the same name and from the mood of it, fans will be given a definite adrenaline shot of fisticuffs and firepower.
Grillo is virtually unstoppable in the action genre right now and teaming with Moussi will definitely bring the heat and top tier action set pieces. Put this one on top of your must see list for next year.
Grillo is now in Malta preparing to shoot the Isaac Florentine helmed action pic Hounds of War which also stars Rhona Mitra and Mark Savage.
Hopefully with King of Killers firmly behind him, Moussi will finally circle back to Kickboxer: Armageddon which is the last installment of his Kickboxer reboot trilogy.
King of Killers is entering post so hopefully we will get some first look footage and release info soon to pass down to all of you.
Keep it locked and and loaded right here for more to follow on King Of Killers as we are your destination for everything action in 2022 and beyond!
