He is a legendary figure in the martial arts world and brings an incredible amount of talent and experience to the production.

Movies like Kickboxer, Bloodsport, and Lionheart – those were such dynamic and stylish films, and Mohammed Qissi was always this presence in them- whether his character was good or bad, there was weight to it. Seriously, he was like the Omar Sharif of that subgenre. The fact that I get to now work with him decades later is really something special”.
