Sunday, August 27, 2017 by John M Jerva

Actor and film maker Matthew Marsden can be seen in the new action flick SAVAGE DOG which stars Scott Adkins which is now playing on VOD and Digital HD but the actor has a new movie on the horizon where he not only stars in but he wrote and directed it as well. The action-drama is titled I AM THAT MAN and it has Marsden playing a former Navy SEAL named John Beckett who is struggling with living a normal life after experiencing the horrors of war. When Beckett's close friend is savagely murdered, he must call upon his special skills that made him a warrior to seek vengeance on those responsible. Check out the poster below!

 

 

The official Synopsis: "Struggling to come to terms with the break-up of his marriage and his reintegration into civilian life, former Navy SEAL John Beckett contemplates returning to what he knows best, war. When a close friend is brutally murdered in a racially motivated attack, Beckett calls upon his specialized military skills to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice. Has he found a new sense of purpose, or will this be his last mission?"

 

Marsden is a British actor, producer and director who is best known for such films as RAMBO with Sylvester Stallone, BLACK HAWK DOWN and can currently be seen as the villain in SWAT: Under Siege. The film also stars the great Tim Abell who fans will know played the awesome Benny Ray Riddle in the television series SOLDIER OF FORTUNE, INC. for two seasons from 1997 to 1999 (one of my all time favorite shows). Abell, who is the real deal being a former US Army Ranger with the 75th Ranger Regiment, has starred in numerous feature films and television shows throughout the years and most recently was seen in SNIPER: Special Ops with Steven Seagal. I am a big fan of Tim's and can not wait to see this film. Also starring are Christine Lakin, Josh Kelly, and Brian Thompson who made a career of playing bad guys in many action films.

 

There is no release date or trailer yet as the movie is still in production but as soon as we get more info and footage, you can check it out here!
