A gun-toting Samuel L. Jackson squares off against Callan McAuliffe in the first photo from Kite, directed by Ralph Ziman. The story centers on a young woman (India Eisley) who teams up with her dead father's ex-partner (Samuel L. Jackson) on the police force to avenge his death. The project, which is currently in post-production, is a live-action remake of Yasuomi Umetsu's Kite. David R. Ellis was initially set to direct, before he passed away in January, when Ralph Ziman took over the directing duties. Take a look at the photo, then read on for what Callan McAuliffe had to say about the production.
Callan McAuliffe recently spoke about how much he enjoyed the project, while doing press at the Toronto International Film Festival.
"It was great fun and that should be coming out pretty soon."
He also spoke about the kinds of things he learned from Samuel L. Jackson while on the South African set.
"It is not a conscious education. You soak up some of the techniques and maybe you'll use them at a later date."
Take a look at the official plot synopsis.
"Kite, is a character-driven action film that charts the story of Sawa (India Eisley), a young woman living in a failed state after the financial collapse, where a corrupt security force profits on the trafficking of young women. When Sawa's policeman father is killed, she vows to track the murderer down with the help of his ex-partner, Karl Aker (Samuel L. Jackson)."
