Vin Diesel is back, and this time he's Toorop, a war veteran turned mercenary who takes on a high risk mission of escorting a woman from Russia to China. What he doesn't know is that the journey will carry an extra level of danger due to the identity of his companion. She is in fact host to an organism that a cult wants to harvest in order to genetically modify a new messiah. Interestingly, a couple of big names from world cinema, Michelle Yeoh and Gerard Depredieu appear, not the usual suspects to co-star in a Vin Diesel sci-fi action fest.
If you believe in omens… Babylon AD went so far over schedule and budget that the production's insurance company had to step in and bail it out. See director Mathiew Kassovitz's comments about the film's production HERE.
