Quiver plans to release the film in North America in 2024.
Alastair (Norris), the commander of a covert Earth security task force, calls upon super-powered rookie Jim (Ting) to go on a mission led by battle-hardened Colonel Green (Singer) and his seasoned marines to track a mysterious energy disturbance at a base in New Mexico suspected of experimenting on alien technology. When the team encounters an unknown being of not only extraordinary strength and speed, but also the ability to control mindless warriors, the trio must fight through unstoppable hordes to uncover the truth behind the hostile alien fortress and prevent humanity’s demise.
Ting notes “that with Earth’s greatest heroes Chuck Norris and Marc Singer literally gearing up for this, I knew we had to make sure fans experience epic fun. My stunt team pushed the boundaries of my vision for clear grounded action elevated with motivated storytelling, and we had Chuck’s son Dakota come on board to choreograph all of his father’s fight sequences. Moreover, we filmed on the cinematic ARRI Alexa cameras at Hollywood’s most breathtaking sets and landscapes and finished it off with cutting-edge visual effects, an invigorating score, and heart-pumping sound effects.”
“We have been looking for an opportunity to work with the legendary Chuck Norris where he could show off his still exceptional fighting skills,” said Quiver Distribution co-presidents Berry Meyerowitz and Jeff Sackman. “We were thrilled when he immediately joined the film after reading Derek Ting’s script, and we can’t wait for his many fans to see him back in action.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to team up with our friends at Quiver on Agent Recon,” said Millennium’s JJ Nugent. “Chuck Norris is one of the world’s biggest action legends and we know that audiences will be just as excited as we are to see him back on the big screen for the first time since Expendables 2.”
Producers are Ting and Joyce Yung for Random Art Workshop (RAW) Films. Executive producers are Meyerowitz, Sackman, Larry Greenberg and Judah Klatzer for Quiver and Matthew Helderman, Grady Craig, and Luke Taylor for Buffalo 8 and BondIt Media Capital.
