Major revisions accomplished in the editing room in Hollywood to the motion picture Max Havoc — Curse of the Dragon filmed primarily on Guam have enhanced the earnings potential of the action movie according to the Guam Economic Development and Commerce Authority.

GEDCA backed an $800 000 loan by Comerica Bank of Los Angeles in March 2004 and Gerald S.A. Perez the authority’s administrator said “We are not concerned about the loan guarantee and believe that changes made after the shooting in Guam will enhance the movie’s revenue potential.”

Principal photography on Guam was completed on May 29 2004 and according to John Laing producer it had always been the intention to add new scenes and possibly new characters following the Guam shoot.

Actor David Carradine (Kung Fu and the Kill Bill films) was added after the Guam filming and is portrayed as “Master of the Black Dragons.”

“We understood since the project’s inception that there was to be filming outside of Guam ” Perez told the Journal. "As far as we know the movie content and storyline with Guam as its location remain intact. Further it is not uncommon for reshoots to occur after initial production is completed."

Perez said plans are underway to premiere the film on Guam and hoped that the special screening would happen in late February or early March. MBJ
