Hollywood Hogan assaults Vancouver


Hollywood Hogan  The sequel to the successful TNT movie Assault on Devil's Island in being filmed now in Vancouver.

The TV flick, titled Shadow Warriors II: Hunt For The Death Merchant, stars Hogan, Shannon Tweed and Carl Weathers.

The Hulkster is also an executive producer on the film.

The press release describes the movie like this:



Led by retired Navy SEAL Mike McBride (Hogan), the S.O.S. (Special Operations and Security) team of former commandos Roy Brown (Carl Weathers - Rocky), Hunter Wiley (Shannon Tweed - Night Eyes) and Derek Hart (Mike White - Raven) rescue a young child kidnapped by her industrialist father and held in an Alpine fortress.

While the Warriors are celebrating the complete success of the operation, McBride is pre-occupied with increasingly haunting memories of a previous Gulf War mission that ended in tragedy. He discovers, to his horror, that an old adversary from those days, Sarkissian (Gerard Plunkett - Da Vinci's Inquest) faked his death to elude capture. Not only is he still alive, but he has resumed his work with chemical weapons and is planning on using them in a terrorist attack. Joined by electronics and hi-tech equipment genius Andy Powers (Martin Kove - Rambo), the Warriors set off to track Sarkissian down and this time McBride is determined to have his revenge.

Alliance Communications Corporation is behind the shoot, along with Vancouver's Crescent Entertainment Ltd. and TNT.

No word on when the film will be shown on TNT.
