Thanks to a recent posting of approved movie scripts listed on the Chinese government’s media bureau website , production companies Beijing Starlit Movie and TV Culture are planning on bringing “Contra” to the big screen. While details are slim at this point, the two production companies have a released a short synopsis, along with a teaser trailer and poster.
In 1988, a huge meteorite lands on an uninhabited island in the South China Sea. Chen Qiang and Li Zhiyong investigate but come up empty handed. 29 years later, Chen sends commandos Bill and Lance into a combat mission there to neutralize the villainous Red Falcon Organization, but end up facing a different enemy altogether.
The film is currently scheduled for a 2019 release. And in case you’re wondering, no I don’t understand Chinese…the good folks at China Film Insider are responsible for this cool bit of info.
