2017 is set to be a big year indeed for action star Scott Adkins. This year will see him anchor the ensemble martial arts thrillers “Savage Dog” and “Accident Man“, and he’ll take part in “The Expendables”-esque gathering of martial arts legends “Triple Threat“, on top of the long-awaited “Boyka: Undisputed” set to release later this year, as well. However, you may want to leave some extra space on your calendar, given that Scott is also set to appear in the sci-fi action thriller “Incoming”, which has just entered production!
Directed by Eric “Z” Zaragoza from a screenplay by Jorge Saralegui, the film is set to be distributed by XLrator Media, who produced 2015’s “Close Range” and will also release “Savage Dog” later this year. The official synopsis reveals what fans can expect from the film:
“The International Space Station is now a prison — the ultimate black site. No one’s getting out. And no one knows it’s there. But when the imprisoned terrorists take over the Station and turn it into a missile aimed at Moscow, only a shuttle pilot and a rookie doctor can stop them. Their task is complicated by a rogue CIA agent (Adkins) who has his own plans for the station and the terrorists within.”
Producer Rick Bennatar commented highly on the film’s premise and Scott’s participation: “We’re thrilled to be working with Scott on this exciting new project. It’s a science fiction film but rooted in the realities of our world today. It explores familiar themes and looks at what could be our world in the not-too-distant future.”
XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon was similarly enthusiastic about Scott’s involvement with the project, saying, “We are excited to work with Scott Adkins again after our collaboration on CLOSE RANGE. He is one of the best action heroes and martial artists in the world today.”
“Incoming” is currently in production with a release date pending. Stay tuned for more info on the film, and what will no doubt be a gravity-lite trailer, as it arrives!
