It is Monday, March 5. My pickup today is 3pm. It’s gonna be a long day at the office as we have some exterior shots and the last major fight scene of the movie. It’s a beautiful sunny day right now in Vancouver. That will all change as tonights fight scene happens in the rain. I expect to finish around 4-4:30 in the morning. Gonna be a cold one…
For the last few days I have been battling the flu and strep throat. Feeling somewhat better today but still a bit lethargic so I skipped the gym and cardio this morning. Gonna save my energy for tonight. From what I understand, this bug has been making the rounds lately. Not much you can do about it, just ride it out and let it run its course. So anyhoo…This has been a very intense shoot. Lots of fights and gunplay. This movie is more in line with my vision of what kind of movies I want to do in the future. And I will elaborate more on that in the very near future. The director on this movie, Jesse V. Johnson, has done a tremendous job. Definitely an awesome director with a very bright future. Everyone involved in this movie has been wonderful to work with. Dolph Lundgren finished a week ago. Mike Dopud, my partner in the movie finished last week. Thanks, Mike…You are most definitely a talented actor and a complete riot to hang around. Your mentality would have made you a great professional wrestler…Yes, I mean that in a good way. Scott Atteah and Paul Wu did a great job in coordinating stunts and fighting. And of course my old buddy Paul Lazenby made it through another endeavor completely unscathed and injury free…I hope that doesn’t jinx us tonite.
I head back to Los Angeles tomorrow afternoon. I’m looking forward to being at home and enjoying the sunshine. And of course Hershey and I will jump in the Bronco and take a few laps to patrol the streets and fight crime…But that’s another story for another time. I have meetings set up upon my return and then the Austin Clan will head to the Broken Skull Ranch for some R&R for a week or two. The bar should be almost completed and I want to finish hanging my neon lights and signs. There are a few other projects that are going on at the ranch that I want to get completed as well. And also with my return to L.A., I am going to implement the Q and A section to the website. And that, my friends, is about it. Gotta prepare for work and finalize my packing…I’m ready to go home.
