I’m super excited about director Dante Lam’s upcoming actioner “The Viral Factor”. In fact, when I stumbled across the images you see embedded below, the top of my skull came completely off. And while that may be a slight exaggeration on my part, the new character posters are pretty nifty.
Unfamiliar with “The Viral Factor”? Read this:
A mission to escort a witness from Jordan to the Netherlands leaves International Security Affairs agent Jon severely scarred: a bullet is lodged in his brain, his fiancée and fellow agent Rita is dead and their traitorous colleague Sean has nabbed their witness.
While contemplating leaving the force, he finds out that his father and brother, Wan Yang, are still alive. In his search for them, he discovers that his brother is working as a mercenary for Sean, who has evil plans to force scientist Rachel to cultivate a mutating virus to unleash on the world.
The brothers unite to stop Sean but finds out that he has an even bigger plan for international blackmail. The battle heads to a showdown in Hong Kong where Sean has decided to release the strain of deadly virus.
Jay Chou, Nicholas Tse, Andy On, Bai Bing, Carl Ng, Elaine Kam, Sammy Hung, Liu Kai-chi, and Lin Peng are scheduled to kick some ass on January 19th, 2012.
