Iron Monk Interviews with Jason Ninh Cao, Zara Phythian, and Vincent Wang

It feels like it’s been taking forever for Iron Monk to get off of the ground, but of course that’s my impatience. I’m still excited about this project, and it appears to be moving forward, even though I don’t think there has been a Director named yet. Check out their latest interview below:


I agree and disagree with Jason Ninh Cao’s assessment. I agree that it’s cool that they are eschewing the Hollywood aesthetic of CGI and wire fights, but I disagree with his assessment that those films are the ones he’s competing with. He’s got to compete with films like Ong Bak, The Protector, Chocolate, and The Raid, of which the last three are having sequels that may be out at the same time this film hits. I have good feelings about this film, so I think they’ll be fine. I’m just wondering when they will announce a director. Once they have that things will really start moving fast.

On a side note, g***damn is Silvio Simac is a big dude!
