Hi Ryan,

          I ran across info on this film over at Guro Inosanto's website. IMDB has a page started and will probably feature updates as they arrive.

Well, Machado BB and cousin Renato Magno has been doing a lot of movie work and knows David Mamet, so it makes sense that John Machado would be in the movie.  Renato also trains Guro I. and has connected him with movie matters previously.

Yes I have heard of this on a wonderfull site called ain't it cool news David Mamet is good hes the creator and show runner for the Unit on CBS.I did not know that Tim Allen was in this. The original script had the main guy being a speical ops fighting under ground fights after returning home from the war. Hes pressed into fighting ufc mma for some bad guys and starts kicking ass. That was all that was reviled. but sounds like they changed the script and added Tim Allen hmmm he kicked ass in Galaxy Quest doing a great James T Kirk inpression. But A man that trains MMA I don't think so. Sorry geeked out there for a few  :lol:Also if the fights are good I line up and watch it.e

This just in from Simo Paula in response to my query about this:

Hi Marc & Cindy,

Yes, Marc, Guro is working with David Mamet.  David is a really nice guy and good friend. 

Guro is the Grandmaster, the "Redbelt." 
Love,
Paula

One of my favorite films. Everything is so understated. It's very well done.

Well there was a reason for that, Eric Haney Command Sergeant Major [ret.] Ws the technical ad visor for that film and I seen Val Kilmer in a interview. I think it was on Extra play him quite a compliment about training him and making sure he had the look and the feel of his role down pat. This is where David Mamet and Eric Haney started to create the Unit for CBS.I hope that this upcoming film rocks and pumped up about Guro Inosantos involvement this will be something to see.

I have followed Haney and his involement with Spartan and The Unit for some time now. I read Inside Delta Force years ago when it came out and have enjoyed Haney's work since. Here is a link to his website: http://www.erichaney.com/. Enjoy!
