Alan Ng, the man in charge of stunts, is eagerly anticipating the upcoming showdown between Jason Statham and Iko Uwais in the highly anticipated film, The Expendables 4, which is being directed by Scott Waugh.
Alan Ng, the stunt coordinator for The Expendables 4, has expressed his excitement for the upcoming highly-charged film. He particularly emphasized the fight scene directed by Scott Waugh between Jason Statham and Iko Uwais. In the movie, the mercenary team is on a mission to prevent World War III, with Statham playing Lee Christmas and Uwais portraying one of the antagonists. Despite having limited time to shoot, Ng praises both actors for bringing their A-game and performing their own stunts. Although Ng would have liked to include more fight scenes for Uwais, the script and character development were critical factors. Fans can eagerly anticipate the impending clash between these two action stars in The Expendables 4.
The Expendables film franchise boasts a remarkable lineup of action movie icons, and two noteworthy additions to the cast are Jason Statham and Iko Uwais. Statham made a name for himself in British crime dramas, such as Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch. He catapulted to fame in 2002 with The Transporter, where he played a driver for criminals and flaunted his exceptional combat skills in stylishly choreographed action scenes. Statham went on to star in two sequels to The Transporter and numerous adrenaline-packed films like Crank, Wild Card, Parker, Safe, and Killer Elite.
Iko Uwais, on the other hand, hails from Indonesia and attained prominence for his role in the critically-acclaimed movie The Raid: Redemption in 2011. The film’s relentless and savage fight sequences showcased Uwais’ extraordinary martial arts proficiency. He reprised his role in The Raid 2, which was widely lauded. Although Uwais has not been fully utilized outside of Indonesian cinema (evidenced in movies such as Mile 22 and Snake Eyes), he has the potential to shine in The Expendables 4, particularly in his face-off against Statham.
