The title of the movie is Sky Fire:
Some, but not a lot of information here.

Simon West is the director.

I found some more here. Pictures and text in Chinese:

It's about a volcano eruption on something called Fire Island (?). Different kind of people are toghether and try to survive. That's all I dare to report from the google translate... :mrgreen:

I searched around some more, and forund these pictures, that may be Jason with his back to the camera. He had purple suit on the pictures he posted. I found them on Forest City Country Garden Pacific View's Facebook site. It's in Malaysia. So that's another mystery solved. :D :under

It's hard to tell... :mrgreen: But it's the same clothes as the one he's wearing in this picture that he posted himself on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/Bn0TbOUhMNY ... asonisaacs Ant the hotel on facebook also had pictures of the luxury cars parked outside.

But it may be a stand-in... :???:

Jason mentioned he didn't think we would get to see this, but then he laughed and said we seem to have a way of seeing most of his projects. I think this was the movie where he told us he was very excited because it was to be filmed in a really beautiful location but they had a schedule change and they said good news they got a soundstage - they no longer had to go on location. LOL

It's a good sign that the poster is in English. it must mean that they are planning a some kind of international release....? We'll have to wait and see, but things usually gets available in the end. :D

He did say the movie had some big name Chinese actors. None of us will know who they are though.

And a trailer, it was retweeted by Hugmejason on Twitter a couple of days ago, but I've been too busy with work to post it here.... Sorry :oops:

. . . with Jason smack dab in the middle of it, Marie!

Um. His character is not much of a volcanologist: Won't blow for 150 years. Oops. :oops:

Yup. No smartest guy on the planet, this one. He'll probably come to a very bad end as a result. :shock:

I guess death by volcano should be added to the list of character deaths...
