THE MOVIE: When a tough-as-nails New York cop finds his family murdered by a drug kingpin, he swears revenge and hops on a plane to pursue their killer to Bangkok. Once in the seedy Thai underworld, he teams up with a local detective to bust heads and right what has been wronged.
While this may sound like a familiar set-up for a buddy/cop movie, action buffs should be pleased to hear that this movie, titled Skin Trade, will unite Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables) as the NYC cop with Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak) as the Thai detective! You may recall that Dolph and Tony made something of a deal: Dolph would star in a Thai movie with Tony – the currently filming A Man Will Rise – and then Tony would make the trip to America to shoot a movie with Dolph. Now we know that American film is Skin Trade. Stay tuned for further details!
Update: Twitch relays news from Dolph’s Instagram account – Beautiful Boxer director Ekachai Uekrongtham will helm Skin Trade. The film is based on a screenplay written by Dolph Lundgren, with another draft from Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning filmmaker John Hyams. | Check out the promotional poster.
