Last week, we brought you news that Samuel L. Jackson and Twilight star Kellan Lutz were joining a new sci-fi action project titled Deathgames, from the studio Motion Picture Corporation of America. It seems like the fanboy-friendly names weren’t stopping there, as Lost’s Daniel Dae Kim is now joining the cast.
The film is an interesting take on old gladiator tales, with a bit of science fiction and thriller elements thrown in for flavor. Heat Vision gives the scoop:
The story centers on a young man (Lutz) who is kidnapped by a sadistic mastermind (Jackson) and forced into a modern gladiator arena, where men fight to the death for the entertainment of the online masses.
Kim is playing a fellow prisoner, an artist who happens to be a master of kendo (samurai-style sword fighting), a skill that comes in handy when he competes for his life and his wife’s.
