Exclusive: Cynthia Rothrock talks her new upcoming martial arts film

For those unaware, the “Queen of martial arts” Cynthia Rothrock has come back to movies, and has several projects lined up. For fans, its great news for sure.

One project that has caused some attention recently is “White Tiger”, a martial arts film with quite an impressive cast: Matt Mullins, Don “The Dragon Wilson”, Joe Lewis, and Cynthia Rothrock.

It should be noted, that Rothrock is playing a villain in the film, and she revealed more details on the story of “White Tiger”:

“This is basically a revenge story. Matt Mullins’ partner played by Joe Lewis is killed on a job, and Mullins teams up with Don Wilson, a retired mercenary,” Rothrock told BZFilm.

She also confirmed that she’d be playing a villain in the film, and revealed that she has a fight scene with Wilson in the end of the movie.

Rothrock said the shooting has already been completed, and the film is now in post-production.

White Tiger was shot in Bangkok, and with such stars as Rothrock, Wilson and Mullins, the film better deliver what the fans want.  Check out some pictures from “Whilte Tiger” below:

It would also be great to see Joe Lewis back on screen, as despite being one of the greatest fighters of all time, Lewis rarely did movie parts, and his last movie appearance, according to IMDB was back in 1997.

In 2011 Lewis announced on his Facebook page, that he had brain cancer, and was given from 6 to 8 weeks to live. As we can see now, Lewis is still “kicking it” with two movies scheduled to be released this year, “White Tiger” and “Kill’em All”, both are martial arts films.

As for Cynthia Rothrock and Don Wilson, the two already starred together in “Sci-Fighter” back in 2004, however “White Tiger” would be the first film where they face off against each other.

Among other projects, Cynthia was to make a film with her long time friend and movie partner Richard Norton, called “Downward-Facing Dog”, however, as Rothrock told BZFilm, the project never got off the ground due to financial problems.
