  1. This movie seems quite interesting after reading the basic story line. Hopefully, the movie will be great despite the fact that it's being released on Friday the 13th. Leguizamo seems to be a busy man… with this movie, he also has a mini-series “The Kill Point” premiering July 22nd on Spike TV @ 9pm co-staring Donnie Wahlberg. Leguizamo comes out as a bank robber while Wahlberg comes out as a negotiator. The mini-series will run for 8 weeks and I know this because I work with them!

  2. For those of you who have read the script, I think I know exactly who Leguizamo is playing….

  3. 🙁 John Leguizamo really annoys the hell out of me, I'm really disappointed. Hope he can surprise me with this role.
