Action film director Art Camacho has just announced that he is currently in development of his new sci-fi action movie The Unforgiven.
This film is set in a post-apocalyptic era, where warfare has wiped out most of mankind and a ragtag set of misfits are humanity’s last hope. The Unforgiven will re-team Art Camacho with martial arts stars Don “The Dragon” Wilson, Cynthia Rothrock, James Lew and Martin Kove. Additionally Camacho is in talks with action star Conan Lee, UFC champion Fabiano Iha and other MMA fighters.
Fabiano Iha is born on July 28, 1970, a Brazilian mixed martial artist. He competes in the Lightweight division and won his last fight at LIP 1 – Lockdown in Paradise 1 against John Cox on March 19, 2005. Fabiano received his BJJ black belt from Crolin Gracie. His nickname is King of Armbar.
It is based on a story written by Art Camacho himself about a man coming to terms with his own mortality in search of redemption, in a bleak future where all hope has been decimated by war.
Camacho promises high-octane action to the heart and soul of The Unforgiven martial arts movie.
This will be the first of three upcoming projects Camacho has signed on to producea and direct for Fledgling Production Company: Iconic Pictures runs by Producer Jason Abustan, who has been featured in numerous independent films and commercials. He joined forces with Art Camacho and his reputable team of industry professionals to create a niche in action films.
“This is going to be our homage to Stallone’s highly successful The Expendables” – said Abustan.
This film comes on the heels of Camacho’s producing the first ever Spanish language MMA action films “Cage Fight” and “Once upon a fight”, both of which are in post-production and set for release in 2012.
So, there is a good news and as I can see MMA movies come to the right hands, but I still care about a quality. It would not be another Warrior movie of cause, but I only hope and not another Tapout made crappy movie. Anyway to see Don, Cynthia and James together in one movie is a great present for all martial arts fans.
