Dave Bautista and Samuel L. Jackson Set To Star in Futuristic Action-Adventure Film AFTERBURN — GeekTyrant

Dave Bautista and Samuel L. Jackson are set to star together in another big action film titled Afterburn, which is going to be a post-apocalyptic adventure story set in the future. It sounds like it will tell a fun and thrilling story!

The movie is going to be an adaptation of the Red 5 graphic novel series of the same name. In the story, “10 years after a solar flare has wiped out technology across the globe. Bautista will play ex-soldier Jake, who works as a treasure hunter recovering valuable objects from the old world for powerful clients. His latest mission is to team with freedom fighter Drea to recover the Mona Lisa before an unhinged warlord gets there first.” Jackson will take on the role of a freedom fighter named Valentine.

The movie is being directed by J.J. Perry (The Killer’s Game) and produced by Toby Jaffe (Total Recall), who said: ”Afterburn is a terrific action story, combining the fun of Indiana Jones with the near future world building of Children of Men. J.J. is going to bring this to life in a thrilling way, using real practical stunt work to create authentic, visceral set pieces. Dave is one of the leading action stars in the world today, as well as being an actor with real soul and versatility. So excited to be making Afterburn with them both.”

Producer John Friedberg added: “The combination of Dave Bautista and Sam Jackson in an epic adventure is a sure-fire proposition for the international marketplace. With an action master like J.J. at the helm, and incredible producers in Steve, Neal and Toby, this is going to be a spectacular cinematic event.”
