Set in a world torn by a war between vampires and angels, "Bloodtraffick" features the human vigilante Ava, played by Grace Huang, who stars with Russell Crowe, the RZA, and Daniel Wu in the upcoming Eli Roth-produced action film "The Man With the Iron Fists", pitted against the vampire Finn, played by Kirt Kishita. The short is directed by award-nominated American director Jennifer Thym, produced by Desmond So, and features Hong Kong action star Philip Ng as action director and stunt choreographer.
A lifelong fan of roleplaying and video games, Thym partners up again with her key creative team from her acclaimed webseries LUMINA to give this fantasy action film, which serves both as a standalone film and a prequel for a feature film, a distinct gritty Hong Kong feel, influenced by modern action and horror films as well as videogames. “I was so impressed with Grace and Kirt on set. Under Phil’s guidance, they jumped right into the action scenes and gave it absolutely everything,” Thym says. “That level of enthusiasm is contagious and gets the respect of the crew.”
Grace’s depth and flexibility as an actor earned her an exciting action role in the upcoming Hollywood feature film "The Man with the Iron Fists" (scheduled for release in 2012) directed by the RZA, and starring the RZA, Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu. Other upcoming feature film projects include Love in Space, a Hong Kong romantic comedy scheduled for release in the summer of 2011.
"Bloodtraffick" is Grace’s first foray into the vampire action genre.
