Magnolia’s fledgling genre label Magnet will release action pics “Kiltro” and “Mirageman” in 2008 and will co-produce a third untitled film currently in development.
All three films will star Chilean actor Marko Zaror.
The films’ producer, Derek Rundell, sees Zaror as the successor to the older generation of action stars. “As these guys like Seagal and Van Damme are getting older, there’s nobody coming up.”
In addition to his work in Chile, Zaror stunt doubled for Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in “The Rundown.”
“Mirageman” is set to premiere this week at Austin, Texas’ Fantastic Film Festival, a fest with a strong focus on genre features. Magnet’s first theatrical release, “The Signal,” will be released in January.
