Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.03.15] action thriller crime

Over the past few years Scott Adkins' film career has blown up in a big way. From roles in some great action films like The Tournament, The Expendables 2 and Undisputed Adkins has become a sought after badass resulting in a call from Marvel Studios to be in Scott Derickson's upcoming Dr. Strange alongside Benedict Cumberbatch.

Not too shabby.

Still a man of action, Adkins' latest is a smaller scale endeavour called Close Range, his seventh collaboration with director Isaac Florentine (Ninja, Undisputed series) . Close Range is an efficient, one location action film that centres around a family under siege by the Mexican cartel, with Adkins the only hope they have for survival.

I had the opportunity to talk with Adkins on the phone and while the audio quality of the conversation isn't the best (sorry folks), it's interesting to hear the actor get passionate his love of comics, action films and how stunts and stunt professionals don't get the respect they deserve in Hollywood.

Close Range hits VOD December 4 and Blu-ray January 5.

Stay tuned for more interviews on The Quietcast.
