Dave Bautista and Samuel L. Jackson are set to ignite the screen in the upcoming post-apocalyptic action thriller, Afterburn. In this adrenaline-fueled adventure, the Marvel actors will navigate a world scarred by a devastating solar flare that decimated technology worldwide a decade prior. Dave Bautista takes center stage as a former soldier turned treasure hunter, tasked with retrieving one of the last remaining treasures of the old world: the Mona Lisa.

Bautista’s character embarks on a perilous mission alongside freedom fighter Drea, played by yet-to-be-announced talent, to secure the iconic painting before it falls into the hands of a ruthless warlord. Meanwhile, Samuel L. Jackson joins the fray as Valentine, a pivotal figure in the struggle against oppression, adding his trademark charisma and gravitas to the ensemble.

The film will be helmed by director J.J. Perry, known for his directorial debut in the action horror genre with Day Shift, and more recently, The Killer’s Game. Afterburn draws inspiration from the Red 5 comic series created by Scott Chitwood, promising audiences a thrilling blend of heart-pounding action and gripping storytelling.
