I have been in contact with Mr Waxman again. He replied although he was very short on his answers and didn't and couldn't answer all my questions, because he is very busy at the moment. He didn't tell if Steven is playing Mr. Alexander again.

This is his reaction:

Happy New Year to you too. We are ramping up for the next Seagal film as we speak. Still too early to talk about cast, but I can tell you that I am working on locking the script now and that it is currently called 'The Mercenary: Absolution'

Check in with me in a couple of weeks and I should have more info to give you.

Peace.


So the working title is The Mercenary: Absolution.
It seems to me that the production has been delayed. Mr Waxman told me a while ago that they would beging filming in January. Also Steven reperted in a recent interview that they will be back in Romania in January for a new film.

So a return of John Seeger? This would be also very welcome, although the Mr. Alexander would be better. :)

But one statement of Mr. Waxman is strange. If they are currently working on the script, which is absolute okay, why was there or is no casting simultaneously?

Mr. Waxman is not in charge of choosing the other actors. Please feel free to correct me.

Otherwise many, many thanks DiDa for your hard work. I am appreciate that you do so much for us. :cook::)

If you gonna contact him, in lets say 3 weeks from this Friday, can you ask him if the wakizashi from A GOOD MAN was Seagal's own?
Maybe you can remember that this my question. And my other statement if there more important questions than mine, you can omit it, but only leave a note.

I also would be satisfied if you can ask him, if this new movie uses Japanese or Chinese or in general Asian topics, not just swords. Set deco, traditional clothing, statues, paintings, speech, religion, philisophy, etc, etc. You know what I mean.

It is you, who decide. I will wait for your reply! :yinyang

I am thanking you deeply in advance. This means a lot to me.
Mr. Waxman should know that his work is appreciated, even if the opinion outside the Seagal fandom is different.

The 1st is from the opening shooting period according to the Facebook author and the last one is extreme. Seagal looks like Guan Yu now!
Check it out.

Now it is official Seagal is the re-incarnation of the legendary Chinese War God. :):D

He is checking if it is possible, but things are tricky he said.
DiDa, how do you even organize such a travel? Not to Romania I mean. If you arrive in Romania, you have to drive to Castel Studios (?) and then?

What would you do? Just shoot photos? The people around you would be extremely busy.

Furthermore do you speak Romanian? You need a driver to the shooting area and back to your hotel respective airport.

Just book a hotel in Bucharest and let a taxi drive me to the shooting location. Of course Mr Waxman would know about the visit and will have someone to welcome me. Don't you think a taxidriver is speaking English. It's a toerist place....anyway it won't be that difficult. But first I wait if it is even possible to visit the set.

Just check the thread about Barbara visiting the set of True Justice. That will give you some idea.

Then have a good time, if Mr. Waxman replies soon to you. I wish you a wonderful and enlightening journey!

Only here was a little concern by my side, since roughly a year ago I watched a TV report on Romania and it was for the tourists extremly difficult to communicate with the taxi drivers.

The English was understandable by the tourists, but somehow the driver spoke only Romanian. It is not his fault or the tourists, so I made this statement.

I hope you arrive save and sound and will return in the same way.

Thanks, but it's certainly not for sure yet.
