New Mexico Film Office director, Nick Maniatis announced today that “Force of Execution,” starring Steven Seagal ("Maximum Conviction," "True Justice"), Danny Trejo ("Sons of Anarchy," "Grindhouse") and Ving Rhames ("Mission: Impossible 5," "Pulp Fiction") will be filming in and around Albuquerque.

Goldfine ("Maximum Conviction," "True Justice"), Benjamin Sacks ("True Justice," "Maximum Conviction"), Jim Burleson ("Cage Fighta") and Binh Dang ("True Justice", "Maximum Conviction").  “It is great to be working at home with such an amazing group of talented people,” said Jim Burleson, local UPM/associate producer.

"We produced 'True Justice' for our partner, REELZ” said Phillip B. Goldfine, producer. “And as REELZ CEO Stan Hubbard convinced us, New Mexico has been as welcoming as it has ever been to the TV and film industry with world class facilities and crew that can take on any project. We love New Mexico."

“Force of Execution” is the story about a crime lord torn between his legacy and his desire to get out of the life of crime that has built his empire, when a new player to the scene tries to use the town anti-hero’s network to climb to power.  The only friend the crime lord has is his assassin protégé who has troubles of his own. An epic battle of underbosses and crime lords.  Only one will come out alive.
