Martial arts star Scott Adkins (Close Range, Zero Tolerance, Hard Target 2) has joined Jesse V. Johnson’s (The Last Sentinel) upcoming action film Accident Man, which is based off Pat Mills and Tony Skinner’s out-of-print UK comic Toxic!
According to Deadline, Accident Man is the story of hitman Mike Fallon, who is known for making assassinations look like unfortunate accidents. His cavalier attitude changes the day his ex-girlfriend, Beth, is murdered by his own crew.
Accident Man also stars Ray Stevenson (Punisher: War Zone), Ashley Greene (Twilight), David Paymer (Drag Me to Hell), Amy Johnston (Lady Bloodfight), Ray Park (G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and Michael Jai White (Falcon Rising).
Accident Man will mark the third time Adkins and Johnson are partnering up for a production (Adkins had a role in 2005’s Pit Fighter). Their latest collaboration, Savage Dog, is currently in post-production.
Accident Man starts shooting in the UK this month. Stay tuned!
