The team responsible for 2017’s Jailbreak – a martial arts flick dubbed “Cambodia’s answer to The Raid” – is back with a vengeance for The Prey, which will once again be helmed by Jimmy Henderson, produced by Loy Te, and penned by Michael Hogdson (along with new member, Kai Miller). Jailbreak’s breakout star Jean-Paul Ly is on board as the film’s action choreographer.
According to SA, The Prey will star five time Chinese national boxing, dual arms champion Gu Sheng Wei (Bloody Destiny), and Only God Forgives actors Vithaya Pansringarm (Lupin the Third), Byron Bishop, Sahajak Boonthanakit and Nophand Boonyai. The film also features Jailbeak’s Dara Our and Dy Sonita.
Here’s a small excerpt from the The Prey’s official plot: Undercover Chinese cop Xin (Gu Sheng Wei) is on a secret international mission when a surprise raid puts him in a remote jungle prison that plays by its own rules. Here, the visitors are wealthy thrill seekers. The guards are hostile puppet masters. And the prisoners are simply pawns in a high stakes game of human hunting human.
