KFMG Podcast S07 Episode 83: Scott Adkins

“It’s not easy to make something so British, and yet so Hong Kong.”

Scott Adkins is in a good mood. The response to his latest martial arts movie, Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday – the sequel to his dream project, 2018’s Accident Man, based on a cherished British comic book he loved as a kid – has been incredibly positive, with many fans claiming it to be one of his best movies. In a gruelling 22-day shoot, Adkins – as producer, story developer, fight choreographer and lead actor – has managed to turn around another action-packed and entertaining indie which delivers way beyond its limited schedule and budget, full to bursting with belly laughs and great fight scenes. As the assassin, Mike Fallon – a hitman who disguises all of his kills as accidents – we find Adkins in a role he clearly loves to play; self-deprecating, goofy, but with a lethal set of skills. During this conversation – Scott’s fifth appearance on the show – we discuss the making of the Accident Man sequel, and why he believes it betters the first; what it was like working with the film’s directors, the Kirby brothers, making their feature film debut; and the preparation involved in delivering such incredible action, including sparring with the film’s exhaustive list of awesome, battle-ready co-stars, including Sarah Chang, Beau Fowler, Faisal Mohammed and Andy Long. We also look ahead to his role in John Wick: Chapter 4, scheduled for release on 24 March 2023 – and we finally discover Scott Adkins’ favourite martial arts film of all time. Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday is available to rent on digital in the UK courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
