The newest official trailer for Nicholas Ortiz’s latest short, Jugando Con Fuego, had an exclusive presentation the other evening over at The Movie Dojo on YouTube and we’re happy to share it here.
The film marks yet another reunion with actor and martial arts legend Robert Samuels who stars in the project opposite actor and stunt performer Hector Soria who plays the villain, who previously shared the set with Samuels on Joey Min’s 2019 action feature debut comedy, Yes, Auntie!.
Jugando Con Fuego was filmed on location in Mexico with Ortiz directing from a script produced by Samuels’ R4 Films LLC partner Robert Jefferson. It centers on Forge, a retired CIA whose past comes back in brutal fashion, leaving him beaten, bloodied, and left for dead, and waging war against the man who tried to kill him.
I’m not sure if this will hit festivals or go straight to an online release but check the trailer above and follow along at Ortiz’s Instagram page for more updates.
