Haven’t heard a whole lot about Scott Mann’s “The Tournament” since we posted a lengthy teaser video for the movie mid-2007. Well the latest is that the film’s official site has posted some stills from the movie, including our first look at Kelly Hu (who was not in the video, which was shot well before the film’s final cast was even casted). Check it out below.
Every ten years in an unsuspecting town, The Tournament takes place. A battle royale between 40 of the world’s deadliest assassins. The last man standing receiving the $10,000,000 cash prize and the title of Worlds No1, which itself carries the legendary million dollar a bullet price tag. All fights are monitored 24hrs a day on redirected CCTV cameras and broadcast secretly to a ring of high stake billionaire gamblers. A gritty, multistranded action-thriller, The Tournament brings together international killers from every imaginable discipline in a blood-bathed contest to the death. We follow the competition favourites through stories of love, betrayal, revenge and redemption as they finally discover the true value of life.
Starring Robert Carlyle, Ving Rhames , Ian Somerhalder, Kelly Hu, Sebastien Foucan, and Liam Cunningham, and written by Gary Young and directed by Scott Mann.
