“The craziest action movie ever is coming to America,” eagerly stated Raymond, featuring the awesome fight scene between Tyson and Seagal, which was previously released and immensely successful in China. According to Raymond, director Tan Bing had to change the eight-minute fight scene between Tyson and Seagal to conclude in an action-thrilling duel, as neither actor wanted to lose.
Unlike Tyson who is more of “a classically trained actor”, with previous features in big Hollywood films like ‘Rocky Balboa’ and ‘The Hangover’, director Bing focused on Seagal’s acting and shot “the film chronologically so he could get into his role,” continued Raymond. Adding the duo’s spectacular relationship both on and off-screen, Bing expressed that “it was a very special experience for [Seagal], he was very moved by the process,” quoted Raymond.
‘CHINA SALESMAN’ will hit VOD and a handful of big screens next month, as the must-see action flick of the summer on June 15th.
