For Mr. Alexander, crime was a business to be conducted with honor and respect. But, like the saying goes, “there is no honor among thieves.” And when that honor is challenged and tested, much more than a reputation is at stake! With guns a-blazing, Anchor Bay Films announces the December 17th release of Force of Execution, starring action legends Steven Seagal (“True Justice,” Maximum Conviction, Machete), Ving Rhames (Pulp Fiction, the Mission: Impossible films), world champion martial arts superstar Bren Foster (Maximum Conviction) with Danny Trejo (Machete, Machete Kills, “Sons of Anarchy). Available for Blu-ray™ and DVD pre-order on November 20th.
From the production:
In the film directed by Keoni Waxman and written by Richard Beattie & Michael Black, Seagal stars as mob kingpin Mr. Alexander, an old-school boss who rules his criminal empire with both nobility and brutality. For a simple prison hit, he sends his best enforcer and protégé Roman Hurst (Foster). But when the hit goes wrong, Hurst is forced to pay the price of his “failure:” banishment in the city that he almost once ruled. But a war is brewing for the soul of the city between Alexander, a cold-blooded gangster known as ‘The Iceman” (Rhames), and a merciless Mexican cartel. Hurst, with the help of an ex-con restaurant owner (Trejo) who has a few hidden moves of his own, will rediscover his own will to survive the coming conflict…and to wreak vengeance on those who have wronged him.
The lines have been drawn in the sand. The fuse is lit. And in a citywide massacre measured in pain, fear, and revenge, the ultimate power belongs to the FORCE OF EXECUTION.

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.
