Dragon Fire, starring Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon, 2012) and Vinnie Jones (Midnight Meat Train) begins shooting this week in Utah. It is being directed by Ryan Little and is the first production from U.K. indie Metrodome Distribution under the banner Cinedrome.
Both Jones and Glover are no strangers to fantasy and action films. Dragon Fire is a fantasy thriller loosely based on the Melville classic “Moby Dick” and is written by McKay Daines, though not much more is known about the project a of yet. Stay tuned here for more details as they come in.
Metrodome Distribution has been planning a move into production for about a year and chose Dragon Fire as its first venture. Peter Urie, CEO of Metrodome had this to say about its first feature “because we have had quite a bit of success, on the distribution side, with fantasy films based around dragons (Dragon Hunter and The Dragon Chronicles), and for some reason the British public seems to like dragons.”
With a small budget of about $5 million, Dragon Fire is expected to shoot for 3-4 weeks. The film is expected to have a release date sometime this November.
