Uwais, Jaa, Chen Swap “Threat” For “Threat”

“Ong Bak” star Tony Jaa, “The Raid” breakout Iko Uwais and “Man of Tai Chi” Tiger Chen will take on action vets Michael Jai White and Scott Adkins along with UFC middleweight champ Michael Bisping in the action film “Triple Threat” for Arclight Films.

If this sounds familiar, you’re not wrong. Jaa, Uwais and Chen were lined up to star in a film called “Triple Threat” last year, but that project fell apart. It has now been reconstituted and boasts a whole new script, setting, director, villains and financier.

The action follows a billionaire’s daughter who 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.

Jesse Johnson is helming the feature from a script by Joey O’Bryan. Chen, Elliot Tong, Ying Ye, Mike Selby, Mike Gabrawy and Gary Hamilton are producing the film which aims to begin shooting in April in Bangkok.
