Asylum giving us Asian Schoolgirls!
In what could be really cool or potentially offensive, one of Asylum’s upcoming 2014 films is called Asian Schoolgirls! It practices what it preaches, with schoolgirls of the presumably Asian variety beating up some mobsters that kidnap them.
Kidnapped by a Los Angeles crime syndicate, a group of schoolgirls must fight and seduce their way to vengeance, teaching the criminals a lesson in kicking butt and taking names.
Asian Schoolgirls is directed by Lawrence Silverstein. The listed cast is Minnie Scarlet, Sam Aotaki, Andray Johnson, and Alan Pietruzewski. Just from the brief description and cast list I’m already ready to watch this film, Asylum does things a bit odd at times, but they have a pretty good record of throwing out surprising stories and films (especially recently) and there is a good chance that this will be a fun ride. And maybe it will lead to Asian Schoolgirls vs. Bearanchula! Minnie Scarlet seems well aware of the racial politics of Asian fetishes and does not come off as the type who would sign up for a film that just reinforced them, I am betting more is going on that the exploitative title.
The only other information I could find is a resume from costar William Jones. Granted, this is probably because Asian Schoolgirls is a loaded search term filled with photos of naked chicks.
Speaking of which, it was hard to find images of the two listed actresses, Minnie Scarlet and Sam Aotaki, that I could use in the article (especially Minnie Scarlet!) I just ended up taking images off of their tumblrs so we can see the two stars:
