21 Hours  A high-concept, contained-budget, action-packed thriller. The roller coaster suspense, spectacular stunts and visceral race action are peppered with intense but gore-free fight sequences, exhilarating and sexy enough for date night but still PG-13-friendly enough for the entire family.

His strong ethics and aversion to violence a lifelong teasing…(Read More)

Meat Loaf and I… Okay, first of all…how cool is it that I can even start a sentence that way!? Meat (that’s what he’s been called since he was a baby) says he’ll answer to any form of meat. “Pork Chop” was my favorite term of endearment while we shot on…(Read More)
