Cung Le Cast In Lead Role For “Dragon Eyes”
Cung Le, a star in the Mixed Martial Arts world, has been cast in the starring role in the upcoming film “Dragon Eyes.” The crime drama will be produced by Dark Castle and After Dark Films.
Le will be the role of a galvanizing individual who unites two rival gangs from impoverished New Orleans’ neighborhoods to fight back against the corrupt law enforcement officials who use them to combat each other. The film will begin shooting next month in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The film is a modern version of the Kurosawa film “Yojimbo.”
Le isn’t new to feature films. The World Middleweight Strike Force champion has starred previously in the Chinese film “Bodyguards and Assassins” and “Pandorum.”
