Fedor Emelianenko on the set of The Salamander Key

Fedor Emelianenko on the set of The Salamander Key

His mixed martial arts career may be flagging, but the former No. 1 heavyweight fighter in the world, Fedor Emelianenko, may see his star rising in the cinematic world.

Fedor is set to make his cinematic debut with the world premiere of The Salamander Key on Thursday in Moscow. The action film, in addition to Fedor, also stars Rutger Hauer and Michael Madsen.

M-1 Global, Fedor’s management company, released the following description of the movie on Tuesday:

Premised on a group of international scientists who disappear on a remote island in South-Eastern Asia while conducting advanced medical research, the Rescue Group commissioned to seek out the team locate remnants of a high-tech laboratory revealing evidence that experimental testing has been conducted on animals and humans. The last communication from the scientists prior to their disappearance cautions the world of immanent, grave global disaster.

“Today we’ve been given a priceless gift – the Elixir of Life…” was the sensational statement decreed by the CEO of ‘Farm-line Corporation’ in Bangkok. The miraculous discovery came whilst researching the salamander’s ability to renew its cells.

‘Congressman commits suicide to mark the eighth death in one month!’  ‘An epidemic of suicide!’ reads headlines on the front pages of all major newspapers, leaving one of Thailand’s top-cops to initiate the investigation behind the continuous string of rash, mysterious deaths.

What joins all these events together? And why is a small island in South-Eastern Asia key to solving the complex questions. The Salamander Key opens the door for a peek into a scientific breakthrough abused for personal gain.

The Salamander Key Cast: Fedor Emelianenko, Rutger Hauer, Zunis Dzhongsavat, Govit Vattanakun, Adrian Bowden, Bo Dzhittrang, Valery Nikolaev, Pavel delagila, Michael Madsen, Oleg Chernov, Valeriy Solovyov, Julia Gorshenin, Alexander Lenin, Aleksei Gorbunov, Anna Geller
