STXfilms has debuted a new featurette for Mile 22 that focuses on Indonesian actor, stuntman, fight choreographer, and martial artist, Iko Uwais. The film will open in theaters on August 17.
In a visceral modern thriller from the director of Lone Survivor, Mark Wahlberg stars as James Silva, an operative of the CIA’s most highly-prized and least understood unit. Aided by a top-secret tactical command team, Silva must retrieve and transport an asset who holds life-threatening information to Mile 22 for extraction before the enemy closes in.
A sequel to Mile 22 is already in the works and will be written by Umair Aleem (Extraction). Earlier this year, STXsurreal announced it was also creating a spinoff of the Mile 22 films titled The Kiev Exchange, a short-form, live-action series from Berg. Also written by Umair Aleem, The Kiev Exchange is a gritty, pulse-pounding action-thriller following the CIA’s elusive paramilitary force, Ground Branch, as they negotiate a tense and complex hostage exchange in a public square. When all hell breaks loose they must come together to fight their way out of an ambush. Berg will produce for Film 44 and Film 45, along with Mark Wahlberg, Matt Goldberg and John Logan Pierson.
