Some Juicy New Tidbits on the "DOA" Action Flick

by | July 6, 2006 | Comments

It seems like I first saw a bootleg trailer for "DOA: Dead or Alive" about five years ago, but the flick looks to be (finally) penciled in for an August release date. The PG-13 girl-centric action flick boasts a rather colorful cast, but the producers seem to be most pleased about Jaime Pressly‘s newfound popularity, thanks mainly to her work on the hit sitcom "My Name Is Earl."

From "What’s great about ‘DOA’ is the fantastic fighting opportunities, but also the sexiness with the volleyball, with the island. It has some phenomenal fight sequences," (producer Jeremy) Bolt told "We worked with Corey Yuen, who did the ‘Transporter‘ movies, and we went to China. I was in China for 8 months last year making it with all the stunt people, and it [has] fantastic fight sequences, but also it’s sexy. We put volleyball in the movie. There’s a 3 minute volleyball sequence."

"We’re ecstatic that Jaime [Pressly] has a hit show, as is Dimension," added Bolt. "She’s now a household name, which is fantastic for us. She’s also a brilliant martial artist, great volleyball player. She’s phenomenally fit and she looks damn fine in a bikini."
