INCOMING: Scott Adkins is Going to Space!
Production is underway in Serbia on the sci-fi action thriller Incoming. International action star Scott Adkins is part of the cast.
Incoming will be the directorial debut of Eric "Z" Zaragoza who has been an assistant director on a plethora of small budget films over the years. Ranging from family affair like Jurassic School (What do you mean it doesn't eat the children!?!?), sci-fi thrillers like Paradox and crime thrillers like The Last Heist. He even had a hand the awfully dumb but perverse slasher flick Jersey Shore Massacre. I have to tip my hat to that one for at least killing off a handful of guidos and guidettes. Credit is due.
XLrator Media is releasing the film in North America. Small budget productions are usually short and quick so expect this early in 2018. The full press release with a description of this space set thriller follows.
