With a handful of projects currently under his belt, martial arts sensation Scott Adkins (Hard Target 2, Eliminators, Zero Tolerance) is without doubt, one of the most active action stars in the business. And now, a new project, titled Incoming, has just been revealed.
This one puts the Close Range star in somewhat of a Die Hard-in-space scenario. According to Deadline, Incoming revolves around an International Space Station that now serves as a prison. When the imprisoned terrorists take over the Station and turn it into a missile aimed at Moscow, only a shuttle pilot and a rookie doctor can stop them. Adkins plays a rogue CIA agent who has his own plans for the station and the terrorists within.
Incoming is being helmed by first-time director Eric Zaragoza. The film is written by Jorge Saralegui (Showtime) and based on a story by producer Rick Benattar (producer of Shoot ‘Em Up).
“We’re thrilled to be working with Scott on this exciting new project. It’s a science fiction film but rooted in the realities of our world today. It explores familiar themes and looks at what could be our world in the not-too-distant future,” said producer Benattar (via KWPR).
Be sure to read about Adkins’ other looming projects, such as Altar Rock, Accident Man, Savage Dog, American Assassin, and of course, the highly-anticpated Boyka: Undisputed IV. Adkins is currently gearing up for Triple Threat, where he’ll be sharing the screen with Tony Jaa (Skin Trade), Tiger Chen (Man of Tai Chi), Iko Uwais (The Raid 2), Michael Jai White (Falcon Rising) and UFC Champ Michael Bisping (xXx: Return of Xander Cage).
Incoming is currently in post-production with a release date by XLrator Media set sometime in 2018.
Updates: Added the film’s first Poster (we’re not sure why London is under attack, but we’re 100% sure the designer didn’t read the film’s plot).
