If your idea of a good movie is Rachel Nichols (Conan the Barbarian) and Zoe Bell (Whip It) fighting each other to the death in nothing but wife-beaters and sweatpants, just go ahead and hit the jump right now. If you need a little more prodding, how about the fact that their new project, Raze, has been touted as a cross between Hostel and Fight Club? In the film by director Josh C. Waller (The Nail), Jamie (Nichols) and Sabrina (Bell) are pitted against each other in a vicious fight for survival in what appears to be a tournament-style death-match. The tagline of the movie reads, “Fight or Die” and that pretty much explains it all. Hit the jump to check out some images from the picture.
The first image features an action scene between Bell and Nichols in which the former is about to be choked out. I’m not sure how Nichols managed it since Bell is a fantastic stunt performer who used to double for Lucy Lawless on Xena: Warrior Princess. Some of her more recent works include doubling for Uma Thurman in the Kill Bill movies and clinging to the hood of a car in Grindhouse: Death Proof. There’s no doubt she can handle herself in a fight.
Then again, Nichols is no slouch, having played Scarlett in G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra and master martial artist Tamara in this year’s Conan the Barbarian. The two have previously worked together on TV’s Alias. You can follow Raze through its recently started production process by checking out their Twitter account, Facebook page, YouTube and official website.
Here are the images and poster, followed by a teaser trailer (via Twitch):
