With Erik Matti’s Buy Bust and Pedring Lopez’ Breach in early stages of production, a new film titled Blood Hunters: Rise of the Hybrids is definitely a taste of what’s yet to come in the world of Filipino martial arts cinema.
“My main motivation in doing Blood Hunters: Rise of the Hybrids is to improve the appreciation of Filipino martial arts. We have to change people’s perspective about it,” prizefighter-turned-filmmaker Vincent Soberano (Police Story: 2013) told MB, who also stars in the film.
“They’ve used Filipino martial arts in blockbuster action films like John Wick, Jason Bourne, Frankenstein, and a huge list of other films, but no one knows its Filipino because its always portrayed by Hollywood stars. It’s about time I did,” Soberano recently stated (via CB).
Blood Hunters also stars John Arceo (Amok), Janice Hung (Wansapanataym) and Taekwondo Olympian-turned-Makati Congressman Monsour Del Rosario (Techno Warriors, Bloodfist II).
Hopefully Blood Hunters: Rise of the Hybrids will pop up in some way, shape or form for the rest of the world to see, but until then, here’s the film’s newest Teaser (via CB):
