I hope he'll be able to have full control on this movie (as opposed to Icarus). He deserves it. The VMI productions seems to be honnest and straightforward, even if sometimes cheap. let's be optimistic on this one.
(oh, and Scott Adkins in the equation is of course some good news).

Well, I just saw that Scott Adkins will be shooting a Sinner And Saints movie in Bulgaria this december. Is Malevolence still on for him ? (it might work on schedule, as he can shoot Dolph's movie on october / november and go on on S&S on december).

MALEVOLENCE shall be shot in November so Adkins should be freed by then (I'm not even sure he'll be required to be on-set the whole time).

Three years ago while I was visiting the set of SKIN TRADE, Dolph told me of a theater play about a boxer that two writers sent his way, wonder if this wouldn't be a movie version of that they then developed...

I would really like it Dolph had the opportunity to get a good supporting cast. For me, adding Peter Weller to the cast of Skin Trade was a very good move (I would love him to do more movies nowadays, plus he's a terrific history enthusiast, he must have got along well with Dolph), so some people of this stature would be good for the movie.

Does Creed's rushed development puts brake on this one or not ? I have a feeling this Malevolence might not happen right now :( . (But I might be wrong, no news is good news).

Moreover I think that it's AQUAMAN finishing later than expected that might have caused MALEVOLENCE some delays because I don't see it being shot before the end of the year now (and then CREED II might take over priority)...

Yeah, I didn't know Aquaman took longer than expected for him (but it's kind of good news).
And it might wise to direct after Creed and Aquaman. If he shoots Malevolence before the summer it might get to speak about it during press for the bigger movies, and his name might get bigger, or at least introduce him to a new audience, and get more publicity for his directorial effort.
It's a "blessing in disguise" (yeah, I used google translate for this one as I didn't know a right english saying for my idea ^^)

Dolph told me it's kind of in the vein of THE WRESTLER meets ONCE WERE WARRIORS (that's what he said unless he confused it with Tom Hardy's WARRIOR, in any case that sounds awesome)...

A co-producer of the film whom I'm acquainted with (and actually helped me on my short film back in 2005) wrote me: "GREAT script and so happy to finally be working with Dolph. We been looking for a while for the right project -- this is really a fantastic one."

If CREED II is filmed in March-April, this hopefully would be produced in the summer or next fall... Crossing fingers for that one!

I missed this message (and the Nordic Light update), but it's good omen for the movie. :D

Possibly shooting in Rome instead of London this fall, because now some of the financing is coming from THE TRACKER producers (which is possibly why he finally signed on to do that one after being a few years in the back burner?)...

It's unclear whether or not Scott Adkins will still be in it, but his name has been removed from IMDB.

I hope Scott won't be in it. Other known actors would be fresh for Dolph.

Would still like to see Adkins be a part of it. But with these sort of films the dates seem to constantly change and Adkins seems to go from film to film pretty quick with not much downtime in between. Guess it comes down to schedules.

Agree with Molt. With both Adkins and Lundgren involved, this could be a very high-profile VOD release. And when I spoke to Chalke, it's the plan to have Dolph direct. I stand by my statements that I think Dolph directs his best work. With Adkins and Dolph directing, this could be amazing...
