MMA fighter Miriam Nakamoto to make her debut with Wildwood
Wildwood will start filming later this year
American mixed martial art (MMA) fighter Miriam Nakamoto is set to make her acting debut with the action-romance Wildwood. The project is backed by international sales and production company Number 11 Entertainment.
Terror Eyes director Delany Bishop will be helming the films. The script was penned by screenwriter and novelist Cara Vescio, best known for her novel series, Wasted.
The story revolves around a young woman (Nakamoto) on the run from her mother and a pair of hired assassins who mistake her for a local girl who mysteriously vanished years earlier.
"I'm excited to be attached and working with such a wonderful team. It gives me great pleasure to channel my creative self-expression and I desire to pursue excellence," said Nakamoto, an eight-time Muay Thai world champion.
