Escapist entertainment is suddenly at least three times as important as it was a few days ago. So, it’s comforting to hear that Chad Stahelski (John Wick) will direct all the high-octane action for three of Asia’s biggest stars for an as-yet-untitled project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thailand’s Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior), China’s Tiger Hu Chen (Man Of Tai Chi), and Indonesia’s Iko Uwais (The Raid: Redemption) have all signed on for the Kungfuman Culture Media and Hamilton Entertainment production.

Scripted by Dwayne Smith, and co-directed by Stahelski and Wang Xiaolie, Triple Threat will follow the experiences of a Chinese martial artist who travels into Mexico to save his ex-wife and their son from a drug cartel. This should not be confused with Gary Mak’s planned Makeshift Squad, a sort of Asian Expendables which also stars Jaa, Chen, and Uwais. Or maybe you should confuse them! Who cares?! Let’s go crazy, world!
