Anyone who’s a fan of mixed martial arts shouldn’t have a hard time finding a movie on the subject these days. Even if you blow through your local video store’s entire selection, there’s plenty more on-deck for next year. Daniel Zirilli’s “Circle of Pain” is yet another entry into the increasing popular genre, and judging from the behind-the-scenes featurette courtesy of the dedicated ladies and gentlemen at MovieSet, this particular outing look promising. Seriously — no joke. You may understand once you’ve seen the clip provided below. Then again, maybe not.
The film, which stars Tony Schiena, Dean Cain, Heath Herring, Louis Herthum, and Bai Ling, follows the adventures of a retired fighter and his journey back to glory. And while it certainly sounds like every other MMA-related movie currently on the market, none of them have Bai Ling AND Kimbo Slice amongst their cast. Take that, “Damage” and “Undisputed 3!”
“Circle of Pain” is scheduled for release on August 15, 2010.
