Hello everyone, I have been in contact with director Michael Oblowitz for the last weeks. He was willing to do an exclusive interview for our website.
Thank you Michael Oblowitz for this opportunity!
Here we go:
Can you tell something about yourself? How did you become
involved in the movie business?
I studied fine art & art history & photography & then film-making—I started directing b&w art-films in the 1970’s & early 1980’s and then I started directing music videos & TV comercials---eventually I started directing commercial narrative films…
I don't know which movie was shot first, but how did you get involved in the making of The Foreigner and Out For A Kill and was this always suppose to be a 2 picture deal for you?
I was introduced to Steven Seagal by a lawyer who represented both of us to direct The Foreigner. That movie went well and then I was asked to direct Out For A Kill.

Hi everyone, I have a lot of new info to share about this project. I 've had a long conversation with the director Matt Clark.
I asked him to share some info and it was no problem. So here are some things about the project. Here are some bits and pieces of our chat:
Alot of people don't realize this about The Legend of Johnny Jones but it is being distributed worldwide by UNIVERSAL and is a Tier 1 project. The release date is October 2nd 2021 to give time for the pandemic to ease so the theaters are open again. It would bring Steven Seagal back to the big screen and we are not using actors in a stereotypical way or how the audience is used to seeing them. This film is written on a deep level and pushes everyone's acting...

But as their investigations drag them deeper into the criminal underworld, the come up against the local mob, and a mysterious criminal enforcer (Seagal).

KUCHING: Hollywood action movie star Steven Seagal will be meeting his fans in Kuching on April 27, as the special guest for the 4th Asean International Film Festival Awards (AIFFA) 2019.

Steven Seagal will meet his fans at the Old Courthouse at 3pm, followed by a Gala Dinner Pullman Hotel at 7pm.
“His local fans will have the chance to meet him while we hope those (fans) in the neighbouring countries will also make a trip here as it is such a golden opportunity,” he said.
“In the past, we have Michelle Yeoh, Jackie Chan and Donnie Yen, making AIFFA one of the premier film festivals in the Asean region,” he added.

Since filming for Attrition started I have been in close contact with director Mathieu Weschler. A very nice person and I am really thankfull to him that he wanted to do an interview exclusively for our site! He is from France, so he tried to give his best English.
Here we go!
Can you tell something about yourself? How did you become
involved in the movie business?
Hello, I'm Mathieu Weschler, I'm french from old town Bergerac in
Dordogne, 37 years old and living in Paris right now. I've always been
fond of movies, especially Hong Kong when I was kid. My mother,
who is a cinephile, used to bring us a lot to the movie theater so I guess
this passion came from this. I remember in College, I did movies with
my friends, with an old HI-8 camera, that were very bloody. We put
firecrackers on us, directly on shitty shirts, to do blood impact. We
had a lof of fun. I even remember having shot the robin hood
opening in a teddy bear version, for a puppet...
last Saturday 365flix gave me a free pass to join the chat with Steven Seagal. It was awesome to represent our forum! Since there weren't so many users online, Steven answered a lot of my questions. He also knew that I was a representive of this website.
Any way here is the report. A video of the chat will follow later today!
Attrition was directed by Mathieu Weschler. How was it to work with him?
Mr. Weschler was a sensitive and intelligent director, It was very nice working with him. Hes a wonderful director
Can you tell something about your upcoming movie General Commander also to be released by 365flix? What is it about?
General Commander is about me putting together a team that's going to take down criminals and no one knows where we are coming from. Its very modern, very avant guard, very new. I'm excited about it
Action legend Steven Seagal headlines this explosive thriller that pits U.S. forces against an Eastern European drug cartel. When crime boss Salazar turns informant, U.S. Marshal Jensen (Luke Goss, Blade II) and his team must guard their luxury-hotel safe house. But as cartel underboss Sinclaire (UFC fighter Georges St. Pierre) and his hit squads descend to murder Salazar, the situation explodes, enraging Agent Harrison (Seagal), who will stop at nothing to root out the mole that compromised the operation.
I did an exclusive interview with the director of The Perfect Weapon, Matthias Titus Paar. Read the result below!!! Thank you Mr. Paar for willing to do this interview for us!!
1. Can you tell something about yourself? How did you become involved in the movie business?
Hey guys, I´m from Sweden, at a young age I started watching the cool 80´s movies with Arnold, Van Dame and Seagal and had a dream of one day doing that myself. At the age of 15 I made my first feature in 1999. Since then I have done about 7 features, 40 short film, probably 500 commercials and tons of music videos. I live and breath film.
2. First you made some movies in Sweden. How did you get involved in the making of The Perfect Weapon?
The short story was that I was involved with the guys Producing The Perfect Weapon a few year before and pushing my own projects. Then I made my Fantasy LEGEND OF DARK RIDER. That was enough for them to bring me to Hollywood and...

I had a chat with Keoni Waxman and he confirmed this:
I'm about to start our next Seagal film in about a week. It's set in Mexico and Istanbul and at the moment it's called 'Contract to Kill'. Getting excited about it - Steven's co-star is Russell Wong and we are working with Ron Balicki again so look for some cool knife fights. We've also made a few changes in our approach to the films so I think it'll look very different than EOAG (as well as...
