I stand by my statements that I think Dolph directs his best work. With Adkins and Dolph directing, this could be amazing...

Yeah. Though last year it was set to be shot and located in London (which would have been cool to see), so having Scott Adkins playing a detective made sense there, I'm not sure it does now if the story takes place in Rome.

Scott Adkins still announced in VWI Worldwide Cannes line-up (although that can be a misleading trick to hype up the distribution sales):

Any updates regarding Malevolence? Is it still happening this year?

We'll see...

When THE TRACKER was made last February/March, MALEVOLENCE was supposed to start production in September but now it seems schedules changed with the British TV show, then the PR blitz of CREED II and AQUAMAN might keep busy in the winter.

I would believe so but he hasn't prepped it so I dunno, unless he let go of the directorial duties...

Great year for Dolph. If Aquaman and Creed II prove to be any good this will be his best year since 2010.

Scott Adkins is Europe right now, and he will soon be finished with Jesse Johnson's Avengement. I wonder if he's still part of Malevolence.

Quick clip of the Sun film school (or press conference, I'm not sure) Dolph made in Venezia

On the page, the project really sounds much better than what it seems.
If D succeeds the movie he wants, this could be a great low-budget gem, directorialy and artistically on the level of THE MECHANIK or better 8)

I'm looking forward to that (and he seemed enthusiastic in that little interview).
Adkins said he was taking some days off in Majorca and going back to work right after his vacations, I'M wondering if it's to work on Malevolence. I would be all for it, even if an english actor might seem odd playing a cop in Rome (but I guess you can make some writing moves to make it work).
EDIT : Michael Jai White seems to be in Italy too. That might be a clue 8)

From what I understand dkins was name that some of the producers / sales agents threw out publicly before they reached an early agreement, which never happened because of that or because of it (like "they put my name on before I said yes, so screw 'em")...

Well, it's not surprising. I wouldn't hold it against Adkins if he decided not to do M because of that. I trust in Dolph to find good "opponents" (I watched The Mechanik again a few weeks ago, and Ben Cross, even if he was "advised" by Nu Image, was a good "sidekick").
I hope Vmi (if they still are in the game) and Sun Film will let Dolph free to do the movie he wants.
