Mark Dacascos never really went away, having been the Chairman of Iron Chef America for years, but it’s only recently that he’s really gotten back to his action/martial arts roots with co-starring roles in stuff like John Wick Chapter 3 and Wu Assassins. He’ll put his skills to the test in November when he and his family have to survive a zombie apocalypse in The Driver. Dacascos plays a former hit-man who is trying to survive with his wife and daughter in a compound after an infection spreads worldwide and unleashes a swarm of zombies. When the compound is attacked, the family must flee and head for a fabled safe zone called Haven up north, while Dacascos teaches his daughter the skills needed to survive in the new world. Dacascos’ real-life wife and daughter, Julie Condra and Noelani Dacascos co-star with him and Wych “Kaos” Kaosayananda is directing, who directed the infamous Ballistic: Ecks vs Sever. Hopefully, he’s improved in the years since that movie hit theaters and the promise of Dacascos karate-kicking some zombies has us on-board regardless. The movie hits Digital, On-Demand, and DVD on November 26th, check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
