Seagal’s Comeback Movie ‘Cypher’ Is Still A Go


In 2014 there were rumblings that Steven Seagal would soon head back to the big screen for the first time since Exit Wounds in 2002 as the lead star in a theatrical action movie.  ‘Cypher’ was touted to have a $25 million budget from Aldamisa International.  However with the movie not appearing on Aldamisa’s website or TheFilmCatalogue, rumours abound that the movie was a red herring not likely to happen.

A little update on that though as producer Sergei Bespalev tells ManlyMovie to indeed expect Cypher, that any rumours of a cancellation are false.  Bespalev also tells us the screenplay is superb.  They are currently looking for a director for the project.

The movie will be co-produced by Steven Seagal, who as it happens also wrote the script.  That may sound worrisome, but apparently it is the script that is keeping the movie’s prospects alive, so who knows.  As for what the script is actually about, a former special forces operative goes rogue, sick of the weakling response of his government, decides he’s had enough and sets upon a path of single-handed wholesale murder of terrorists.

Who knows.  Maybe the film is so forwards and bald-faced that it might just be an entertaining, bush leauge John Wick rip off, with gangsters replaced with terrorists. All I know is I’m ready for the old Seagal to come back.  I’m ready to stop laughing and start rooting for some violent theatrical vigilantism with this 1990’s icon.

      Hey bro.. did u see “Urban Justice”?
      I love that Seagal DTV.
      In the same vein as his old pictures.
      “Pistol Whipped” is cool too

        Yeah man, Urban Justice is one of my DTV faves. I thought that was the come back film – until Kill Switch came along : Pistol Whipped is also a good one. Believe it or not, I also like The Keeper and A Dangerous Man, though most don’t like those. Hey, I thought A Good Man was very good, much better than I expected. I could watch that a few times.

          I havent seen A Good Man yet.
          have too.
          i liked Dangerous Man too, for what it was.
          Eddie Griffith was funny as the bad guy. He was good.

      They should get Andrew Davis or the guy who directed Exit Wounds to direct it.
