On this new episode of The Filmcraziest Show, I was joined by Ellen Hollman (pictured in the featured image, and starring in the upcoming The Matrix 4), Matt Passmore (known for Jigsaw) and Geraldine Singer (Get Out, 21 Jump Street) to chat about their new film Army of One, an actioner that is now available on demand (see a list of where it’s available here).
The plot: While on a road trip, Special Forces Brenner Baker (Ellen Hollman) stumbles upon a cartel’s compound. Her husband, Dillon (Matt Passmore) is killed and she’s left for dead. The Cartel made two mistakes, killing her husband and leaving her alive. They won’t make another as Brenner sets out for revenge and to take down the cartel and the big bad, Mama (Geraldine Singer). The film also stars Stephen Dunlevy, Gary Kasper and Kendra Carelli. It’s directed by Stephen Durham; and written by Durham, Ellen Hollman, Mary Ann Barnes and David Dittlinger.
On the podcast, we discuss Hollman’s experience being involved in the writing process; Matt’s limited screen time; sequel possibilities (so some slight spoilers happen around 13:30-16:00); the creation of the Mama character; Ellen talking about the fight choreography and stunt work, as well as the camerawork (by Jon Schweigart) and that one-shot fight sequence; as well as some questions unrelated to Army of One, like some cool tidbits about The Matrix 4.
