In addition to Jesse V. Johnson’s Triple Threat, which is being described as a martial arts Expendables-type flick starring Tony Jaa (Skin Trade), Tiger Chen (Man of Tai Chi) and Iko Uwais (The Raid 2), there’s another high profile Jaa film on the verge of being released called Paradox (aka Fate).

Directed by Wilson Yip (Ip Man 3) and produced by Soi Cheang (SPL II), Paradox stars Louis Koo (League of Gods) as a police negotiator who travels to Bangkok to search for his teenage daughter and is aided by local detectives played by Jaa and Wu Yue (Journey to the West).

In addition to Koo and Jaa, Paradox also stars Gordon Lam (Trivisa), Ken Lo (The Godfather’s Daughter Mafia Blues), Hanna Chan, Stephy Tang (Let’s Go!), Chris Collins and features action choreography by Hong Kong film legend, Sammo Hung (The Bodyguard).

The film is being marketed as part of the SPL/Sha Po Lang crime franchise (aka Kill Zone), but like SPL 2 to SPL, it should be noted that Paradox is unrelated, story-wise. To add to the confusion, an actual SPL 3 is currently in development.

Paradox will see a domestic release on August 17, 2017.

    Frankly I’d be surprised if Angelababy appeared in a B-list action film with Iko Uwais and Tony Jaa. This seems like a case of a producer slapping on a name on a project to make it more high-profile. We’ll see I guess.

    As for Fate, it sounds very exciting! I just hope it’s not just someone who stumbled on one of those early SPL 2 announcement that still mentioned Sammo Hung as part of the project and forgot to read the date. We’ll see too ^^.

    NICE. It’s got an 80’s Hong Kong look to it.

  3. AFS says:
