I’m told from sources within the business that Dolph Lundgren is directing a new movie called Castle Falls, as I’ve been provided the plot and character descriptions.
Update: The movie was released on December 3, 2021, directed by and starring Dolph Lundgren, and Scott Adkins. The IMDb description also confirms what I have been told below: “Rival gangs seek out millions of dollars hidden inside a luxury condominium that’s scheduled to be demolished, but first they have to deal with the janitor who found the loot first.”
Original article continues:
While not listed yet on the IMDb page of Dolph Lundgren, the IMDb pro version does list Dolph Lundgren as directing, and starring along with Scott Adkins, which will see the two reunite from The Expendables 2, Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning and Legendary.
I can’t confirm Scott Adkins, but since he has been listed on IMDb Pro since December and the movie is in the works, the two seem to add up.
I’m told the movie is an action-thriller about a building that is under demolition, and on that night the demolition foreman encounters a group of thieves seeking to recover millions of stolen dollars hidden within the bowels of the building.
IMDb Pro lists Dolph Lundgren as playing Shea, with Scott Adkins as Mike, which the character descriptions below mention, and Andre Relis as the producer.
I’m also told filming on Castle Falls may start in March.
City on Fire first reported on the involvement of Dolph Lundgren and Scott Adkins back in December.
Check out the character descriptions below.
Dolph Lundgren is known for lots of movies in addition to The Expendables including Rocky IV and he recently starred in Aquaman as King Nereus.
Scott Adkins recently starred in Ip Man 4: The Finale and is known for his martial arts action flicks (he was also a fan-favorite choice to play Batman at one time).
