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.

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...

Synopsis: Special Agent John Harmon is called back into action when the CIA stumbles upon evidence that a dangerous group of extremists is planning to join forces with a drug cartel. He assembles a high tech team of operatives and devises a daring operation to turn the two groups against each other in an explosive confrontation.
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...
