In addition to this beautiful specimen of arachnid (as expertly handled by professional scorpion wrangler Dusty Webb), we’ve recently discovered that SUPER cute Martial Arts star Bren Foster (above left) has been added to the Force of Execution cast. He is here in Albuquerque right now filming with Steven Seagal, Danny Trejo, Ving Rhames and many talented locals!
The film, currently shooting downtown – next headed to I-25 Studios, is a reunion on many levels. Foster and Seagal recently worked together on Maximum Conviction, which also paired Force director Keoni Waxman and producer Phillip B. Goldfine (above right).
There was a spike in web chatter when it was first reported that Seagal would be re-teaming with Machete co-star Danny Trejo (pictured below with local actor Joshua R. Aragon) for this project!
New Mexico Film production vet, Jenny Gabrielle (SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden, Sweetwater, The Banshee Chapter, Georgia O’Keffee, The Dry Land) also stars!
Hometown super star Steven Michael Quezada was slated to appear in the film, but his current Breaking Bad shooting schedule conflicted with filming dates.
Force of Execution is the story about a crime lord torn between his legacy and his desire to get out of the life of crime that has built his empire, when a new player to the scene tries to use the town anti-hero’s network to climb to power. The only friend the crime lord has is his assassin protégé who has troubles of his own. An epic battle of underbosses and crime lords. Only one will come out alive.
Seagal, Goldfine, Benjamin Sacks, Jim Burleson, and Binh Dang, Producers.
The Cowgirls is a western about a group of school girls forced to take on the roles traditionally left for men, when their ranch is threatened with financial ruin after the tragic death of the rancher. Seizing on the tragedy a local banker and the old ranch hands join forces to force the property into foreclosure thinking that if they refuse to drive the cattle to the annual auction that the wife of the deceased rancher would be forced to default on the loan. They never counted on this cowgirls tenacity and the support of the dozen teenage pupils she has been caring for since they were left on her doorstep during the civil war.
Using the sets, crew, and locations that have made New Mexico one of the leading film states in the country we plan to make a western that would make John Wayne proud. Because New Mexico is such a forward thinking state as far as film production there is a billion dollars in film infrastructure ready to take our modest budget and shoot a film that experts would place valued at millions of dollars. We have great talent attached and the support of a great directing team. Cast attached: Claudia Christian (Babylon 5), Kelly Lintz, (Hunger Games, Army Wives), Mackenzie Lintz (Hunger Games), Madison Lintz (Sofia from Walking Dead), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall, The Rock), Franco Vega (Social Network), Noel G (Dark Knight Returns), and many others.
