Co-producer Chad A. Verdi:
Filming in London, England in October 2017, I can't wait to be on set.

Brandon Jones (Dolph Lundgren) is an undefeated underground fighter of exceptional talent who doesn't know how to lose... but he is ordered to do just that for a crucial high stakes fight. Failing to follow through on this command, a merciless punishment is exacted, resulting in the brutal murder of his wife and daughter, and Brandon himself is brain damaged, a shadow of the man he once was.

With the help of his best friend and trainer Dutch, Brandon must rebuild himself mentally and physically to take revenge on those that tore his family apart and left him for dead. In his way stands a cartel of cold-blooded fighters, a corrupt police force headed by Detective Cain (Scott Adkins) and the limitless resources of mob boss Vincent, a ruthless and twisted individual, who holds sway over the city.

As Brandon exacts his revenge, leaving a trail of devastation and destruction in his wake, he comes to realize that all is not what it seems and what he once feared lost may prove to be his salvation.

The film is currently in pre-production and I am producing with Craig Baumgarten, Gudrun Giddlings, Andre Rellis. VMI has the worldwide rights to this film. This is my sixth project with VMI and for sure not my last.

Given two of the producers involved and what Dolph mentioned in a recent interview, there are good chances he's considering directing it (to "get back on the saddle" so to speak)...

I didn't want to start a new topic incase it was involving Malevolence, but it seems like Dolph is (done ?) shooting something with Eric Roberts, according to his instagram (and the caption from Dolph makes it sounds like the D man is directing).

He says it's a wrap "for" Eric Roberts, not even sure Dolph is involved and as far as I know he's taking a break and enjoying his daughters visit...

It looks like it lots of things, at first I thought Roberts announced his retirement, or that D paid him a visit somewhere, or that they've just hung out. I don't know what that is for but I'm pretty sure it's not about MALEVOLENCE. Dolph's "sore looser" t-shirt from EX3 hanged behind has me puzzled too... Also I do know Dolph does not always post in "real time".

I think he may have done a quick cameo in SHARKNADO 5 (to air August 6 in the US) along with dozens of other celebrities so that could likely be from that as well, or some promotional thing where they bring back some of the EXPENDABLES cast...

Yes, I might have "over thought" it :oops: Theye are in the same circle of actors I guess, so it make sense they're juste hanging around or sharing "stages". (and yes, I noticed the delay in his IG postings).

(and for the sharknado thing, I thought about creating a topic after I saw a Dolph assistant on the S5 credit on imdb, but as it's a fully reliable source for not yet released stuff, i restrained myself).

Oops, I meant it's NOT about MALEVOLENCE... :?

I bet it's a commercial or some other side stuff, nothing serious.

So it is now confirmed that Dolph is directing MALEVOLENCE! 8)

Back in the saddle 8 and 1/2 years after shooting ICARUS (although as creative producer you could say he was almost a co-director on SKIN TRADE)...

Production will take place in October and November (including prep).

Then I assume CREED II would be shot in the winter...

I can't believe it's been that long since Icarus. Can't wait to see it.
