It’s hard to believe it was in November 2016 that Kung Fu Kingdom first reported the news that “Accident Man” was in production with UK martial arts action star Scott Adkins headlining with an “Expendables-esque” line-up. Since then Scott, with his cast and crew worked tirelessly to bring his dream project, based on the British cult comic “Toxic” series, to the screen.
“Accident Man” was released on Blu-ray and DVD in the US on 6th February (and you can read our review) but UK fans had an extra treat as two months later on 7th April, the film was a given a big-screen premier at the Mockingbird Cinema in Birmingham, organised by the Fighting Spirit Film Festival.
The sold out event was a buzzing martial arts fest whose guest list included award-winning film makers, actors and talented martial artists, along with the many fans who purchased tickets to aatend. And of course, the man of the hour himself, Scott Adkins, was there to realise a dream come true – his film being shown on the big screen to an audience in his home town. We sat down with Scott to talk about the film and the challenges he faced as not only as its main star but also the creative driving force as writer and co-producer.
