Jackie Chan takes on Pierce Brosnan in the new trailer for The Foreigner, an action drama directed by Martin Campbell (Casino Royale). The film’s based on Stephen Leather’s novel The Chinaman and was adapted for the screen by David Marconi. Jackie Chan served as a producer along with Wayne Marc Godfrey, Arthur Sarkissian, Qi Jian Hong, Claire Kupchak, Scott Lumpkin, Jamie Marshall, and Cathy Schulman. STXfilms is targeting an October 13, 2017 theatrical release.
The Plot: The Foreigner is a timely action thriller from the director of Casino Royale. The film tells the story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love — his teenage daughter — is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.
