Veteran Hollywood producer Mario Kassar will executive produce “Foxtrot Six,” a sci-fi action feature from first time Indonesian director Randy Korompis.

The $10 million picture is a co-venture between newly established production companies Rapid Eye Pictures and East West Synergy.

The budget is more than ten times the average in the country and puts the film on a sharply more international trajectory than most pictures from SE Asia. “Foxtrot” is intended to be the first element of six Hollywood-style franchise movies from South East Asia. It also sees Jakarta-based, French-Australian Guillaume Catala as co-producer.

Kassar, former head of Carolco, has credits including “Rambo,” “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” “Basic Instinct,” “Stargate,” and the original “Total Recall.”

The film is co-produced by Ario Sagantoro, who produced “The Raid” and “The Raid 2.” His fight choreographers include Yayan Ruhian and Cecep Arif Rahman. Producers are also anticipating a significant aerial crew and futuristic weaponry.

Production will start in the first half of 2016, on location in Indonesia and the U.S. and the completed picture is slated for worldwide release in 2017.
