Former WWE Diva Angela Fong, who competed as Savannah, is to be featured in a short film adaptation of the Black Tiger: Legacy of Fury comic–if the project gets its funding, that is.
Beyond Time has launched an Indiegogo fundraiser to gather funding for the project, which is to star Angela as the hero Black Tiger. The Indiegogo page describes the short film:
“Revolves around eponymous martial arts superheroine who just received the mantle. Lacking guidance, she struggles between duties to fight crime in Los Santos and finding balance in her personal life. She is striving to uncover the truth behind the murder of her father, the prior Black Tiger, as leads run cold and opposition becomes deadly.”
The project’s goal is set at $50,000 and closes on August 10th at 11:59 pm PT.
