The Asian action stars will topline the new film with 'John Wick' director Chad Stahelski coordinating the action design.

Three of Asia's hottest action stars, Tony Jaa (Ong Bak), Tiger Chen (Man of Taichi) and Iko Uwais (The Raid), are teaming up for Triple Threat, with John Wick director Chad Stahelski coordinating the action design.

Arclight Films has boarded world sales on the project and is introducing it to buyers for the first time at AFM.

Dwayne Smith wrote the screenplay for the film, which revolves around a Chinese martial artist who goes to Mexico to rescue his ex-wife and their son after they are kidnapped by a drug cartel. Wang Xiaolie will co-direct the movie.

Triple Threat is being produced by Kungfuman Culture Media and Hamilton Entertainment. Ying Ye, managing director of Arclight's Asian cinema division Easternlight, is producing alongside Chen Sylen Hwa, Sheldon Pang, He Shi and Gary Hamilton.
