EXCLUSIVE: Amy Johnston, who starred in Dracula: Reborn and served as Scarlett Johansson’s stunt double in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier, will star in a potential career-making role in the $10m action film.
Lady Bloodfight is set to go before the cameras this autumn in China, Hong Kong and Macao with Chris Nahon in the director’s chair.
The film follows Jane, a troubled backpacker in Japan whose raw fighting skills attract the attention of a karate champion who trains her to compete in an all-female underground tournament.
When Jane faces off against the fearsome Ling, the pair end up uniting on a mission to battle darker forces lurking in the shadows.
Bey Logan, producer of the upcoming Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2 and writer of The Medallion, will produce.
“We’re very excited to be working with a talent like Bey Logan and to be filming in China, a burgeoning force in film productions,” said Voltage president Nicolas Chartier, who is in talks with potential partners in China.
Voltage’s EFM slate includes A Many Splintered Thing starring Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan.
