After decades of neglect, Castle Heights Hospital, a symbol of the city’s segregated past, has been packed with dynamite and is ready to be demolished. No one knows that a gang leader, now in prison, hid the 3 million dollars in cash he stole from his rivals inside the abandoned building. Now, three desperate parties want the money – a blue-collared ex-fighter (Scott Adkins, “Boyka: Undisputed”) who finds it while working as part of the demolition crew, a prison guard (Dolph Lundgren, “Rocky IV”) willing to do anything to pay for his daughter’s cancer treatment, and a ruthless gang who claim to be the rightful owners. The demolition charges are set, everyone clears out and the Castle is set to fall in 90 minutes.
Dolph Lundgren found martial arts at a young age as a way to cope from a painful upbringing. After graduating from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston life took him to New York where he began modeling to make extra money and that led him to acting. His debut was in 1985 for a small part in James Bond, A View To A Kill. That same year came the role that gave him the unexpected international recognition, as Drago in Rocky IV. Since then he has been in over 70 feature films. Soon we’ll be seeing him in Aquaman 2 and Expendables 4.

With the upcoming Castle Falls release I was connected with Dolph Lundgren while he was filming in Greece to talk about his return behind the camera. Of course I had to ask him about the fight scenes and the story line with a touch of human compassion. In addition to what franchise he would want to relive and more.
Castle Falls out in theaters, On-Demand and Digital December 3, 2021.
