Heh, I knew the headline would immediately grab your attention.
Self-described as "Erotic Period Swordplay Actioner" according to B&E Productions, the advance teaser trailer for Snowblade is literally hot off the press. And by hot, I mean smoking hot swordswoman serving vengeful fury through the stroke of hot steel. There is definitely a Lady Snowblood vibe to it. Here's a news excerpt from the production house:
The film, which stars Sable Yu (from the Pang Bros release 'In Love with the Dead'), tells the tale of a lethal bladeswoman who must cut down seven foes before the full moon sets. 'Snowblade' marks the directorial debut of B&E co-founder Bey Logan, who is ably supported by acclaimed Cinematographer Rain Li (Gus Van Sant's 'Paranoid Park, 'Paris Je T'Aime'). Though the full cast has yet to be announced, the scenes shot so far feature rising Guangzhou-based actor Taeki Gong and celebrated Chinese-American character actor Andrew Ng. "Our year one productions were quite tame compared to this," observes Logan. " 'Snowblade'
reflects the darker, edgier side of our creative instincts'."
Shooting has already begin at the Ace Studios in Guangzhou with a release set sometime in 2011. You'll find the 30-second teaser embedded below.
