It’s been the long time since we’ve heard from indie filmmaker Nicholas Ortiz who’s presence on here was noted much more for his work on shortfilm thriller, Black Betty, a project whose webseries/feature prospects were long since shelved by the pandemic as well as other factors.
Instead however, Ortiz took to the streets of Mexico several months ago for the production of original short action thriller, Jugando Con Fuego, filmed safely under Covid guidelines and has since stayed the course with a trailer now online, which premiered firstly over the weekend via Jeof Vita’s Kung Fu Drive-In Podcast. Ortiz directs a cast led by Hong Kong cinema and stunt legend Robert Samuels (Red Wolf, ASDO’s Yes, Auntie!).
Follow one man’s blood soaked pursuit of revenge through the dark underbelly of Mexico. Sometimes Justice… is Revenge.
Jugando Con Fuego hails from Deviant Children Productions, R4FILMS and TeamOneTake Action Design, and also stars Hector Soria, Jose Manuel, Roxalinda Vazquez, Juanita Reyes, Miguel Alexandro, Peralta Armando, Alberto Galileo Millan, Robert Jefferson, Salvador Rodriguez, Manuel Becerra, Angel S. Garcia Brophy, David Burrola and Luis Orlando Candelario.
