One of the surest signs yet of the coming apocalypse is former heavyweight boxing champ Mike Tyson and Aikido-expert Steven Seagal appearing together in a Chinese B-movie. Director Tan Bing corralled the pair for his recently-completed, action-thriller China Salesman.
Both Tyson and Seagal are nearly three decades removed from their peak stardom, so it’s hard to imagine either of them providing much of a boost to the box office numbers for the insipidly-named China Salesman.
Along with Tyson and Seagal, the cast also features Janicke Askevold, Eriq Ebouaney and Dong-xue Li. China Salesman is scheduled for release in China on May 28th and, judging from the trailer, should go directly to DVD in the United States.
