“There’s a whole lot of action; there’s a love story mixed up in the middle of it. It’s starring Jah, Cliff Cadle, myself…it’s starring some American actors, some big named actors like Deandra Brown, Auntie Fi. Auntie Fi, she came out in the new Barber Shop movie that is theatre right now. Deandra Brown who is bringing out a whole lot of movies this year. So those movies are going to be in theatres too.”

“It is based in Los Angeles, of course so we have two guys, two different types of people. One of them is like a white collar type of criminal; he goes after banks and stuff like that and the other one is a street guy—car jacker from the jungle—just like a L.A. story. What happens is that they run into each other and off the top they just don’t like each other, they don’t go along. And then they get mixed up with the same guy, unknowingly, and he forces them to work together to do this job for him so that he doesn’t take them out.”

“This premieres in the United States over the weekend. Talk to us about release for the movie in terms of the audience that you have abroad and for anyone who would want to see it from Belize?”

“It releases in L.A. in Chinatown; that Saturday coming up which is April thirtieth. It is going to be huge; red carpet, a whole lotta people involved and then from there we go to Vegas and then we go to all over the place. The movie, after states, definitely we stepped it up in every single way possible that you could step it up. From quality to the story to the action; the type of action that we have in it…we have car chases, we have explosions. Definitely the production got bigger.”
