Manila’s classic charm and lovely people have captivated not only the American film industry when it was chosen as the main location for the films The Bourne Legacy and Pacific Rim few years ago. This year, Manila caught the eye of Russian action star Alexander Nevsky who is set to film a movie in the region along with international and local actors.

Nevsky is a superstar bodybuilder who became an actor, writer, and producer in Russia. He has published five best-selling fitness books in Russia and created Hollywood films like Moscow Heat and Treasure Raiders. He is also known to be the Russian alter ego of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

During one of his interviews for his upcoming movie that will be shot in Manila called Showdown in Manila, he expressed his appreciation for Filipino beauty, hospitality, and positive demeanor. He is set to co-produce and star in the said film along with Filipino-American martial arts actor Mark Dacascos who will direct the movie.

The cast of the upcoming film includes Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Olivier Gruner, Casper Van Dien, Matthias Hues, Cynthia Rothrock, Natalie Gubina, and Filipino-American actress and model Tia Carrere. The movie will also cast local celebrities like Jake Macapagal, Will Devaughn, Iza Calzado, Mon Confiado, and Monsour del Rosario.
