Director Isaac Florentine’s upcoming action thriller film, Hellfire, starring Stephen Lang (Avatar) and Dolph Lundgren (Creed II), has officially wrapped up filming, according to an exclusive report from Deadline.

Michael Sirow (Fortress) also stars in the upcoming movie alongside Maurice Compte who previously starred in Narcos, Levon Panek (Dexter: New Blood), and Natalie Canerday (October Sky), among many more. With a large and talented cast alongside a potentially gripping and action-packed story, Hellfire could be an exciting film for fans of the action-thriller genre to look out for when it debuts sometime in the near future.
