Tony Jaa (Skin Trade), Tiger Chen (Man of Tai Chi) and Iko Uwais (The Raid 2, Headshot) will equally headline Triple Threat, an upcoming action film that’s best described as a martial arts-themed Expendables.
The film was previously known as Makeshift Squad, and had filmmakers such as Gary Mak (Inside or Outside) and Chad Stahelski (John Wick) attached. But now, word comes from FCS that Jesse V. Johnson (Savage Dog) will be the film’s director – the very same source adds that Michael Jai White (Falcon Rising), Scott Adkins (Eliminators) and UFC Champ Michael Bisping (xXx: Return of Xander Cage) have joined the cast.
According to THR, here’s what you can expect from the plot: Triple Threat revolves after a billionaire’s daughter becomes the target of a mercenary cartel. Her only protection are two down-on-their-luck fighters and a third who has vowed revenge against the others. Jaa, Uwais and Chen are the protagonists, while American thespians Adkins, Bisping and White are the villains.
We’ll keep you updated on Triple Threat as we hear more. For now, let’s give Tiger Chen (the lesser-known of the three headlining stars) some props in the trailer for Man of Tai Chi:
