Welcome to AFD News!
Today's news includes the unfortunate passing of action film legend Brad Allan, Robert Rodriguez’s El Rey Network finds a new home, casting announcements for Witcher prequel series, live action My Hero Academia film finds its director, Alan Taylor talks losing interest in film after fan backlash over Thor 2 and Terminator Genisys, casting updates for Brad Pitt’s Bullet Train, Ryan Reynolds and potentially Extraction’s Chris Hemsworth make their way to Fortnite, Paper Tigers hits #7 on Netflix, Anthony Mackie closes a deal for the next Captain America film, and Hasbro releases an Aliens anniversary Pulse Blaster Nerf gun!
In tribute to Brad Allan, we also do an in-depth discussion of the rematch duel from 1999’s Jackie Chan action romcom “Gorgeous.” The two martial arts legends go toe-to-toe in an almost 10-minute long sequence, showing great sportsmanship and even greater kicks. Of course, the whole endeavor is steeped in the classic physical comedy signature to Jackie Chan’s filmography.
