San Pedro, California Apr 23, 2023 (Issuewire.com) – Director Jim Towns announced the official casting for his highly anticipated new action drama, “Killer Ex.” The star-studded lineup includes martial arts actors Mohammed Qissi, the legendary villain from Kickboxer, and William Christopher Ford, best known for his role as “Dennis” in Karate Kid III.
Making his big-screen acting debut, international martial artist Grand Master Jose Torres is set to play Victor, an altruistic, clever, and powerful ex-assassin turned family man who is forced back into his former life when his ex shows up with a slew of killers after her. Torn between his love for his family and desire to protect his ex, Victor Reyes attempts to walk a fine line while maintaining his integrity and reputation.
“Jose has a lot of natural charm and charisma and great comic timing as well,” shared William Christopher Ford. “Plus, he is willing to put in the hard work. I certainly cannot predict the future, but I think he’s going to surprise a lot of people with his performance in this film and make a big impact. “
Torres, an 8th Degree Tang Soo Do Black belt and decorated martial arts master, is a father of three and a family man himself. His martial arts career began in 1982 under Master William Hamilton. Over 40 years later, Torres has seen a great deal of success in the martial arts world, including the opening of his successful Team Torres Martial Arts franchise, after-school programs for the youth, the production of international and domestic martial arts events, and so much more.
Grand Master Torres has received a staggering amount of Commendations and Proclamations, belongs to several Halls of Fame, and has been featured on Amazon Prime’s “52 Masters.” He is recognized internationally for his entertaining, engaging, and charismatic martial arts seminars. One of Master Torres’ most notable contributions to martial arts is his founding of the North American Federation of Martial Arts (NAFMA) in 2005.
With so many life achievements, Torres is making a career pivot to combine his lifelong love of martial arts with his dream of acting. He brings a refreshing energy to the film industry with his charismatic personality and contagious smile.
“It is an unbelievable opportunity to be cast as the lead for this film,” shared Torres. “Director Jim Towns is an outstanding director and writer. Im excited to bring the character “Victor Reyes” to life. The whole cast of the film is truly top-notch. Both William Christopher Ford and Mohammed Qissi are amazing human beings and have starred in iconic martial arts films. I’m honored to work with them. It’s a dream come true.”
Killer Ex is set to begin filming this coming June, with a release date scheduled for 2024. Filming is scheduled across New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and California.
“It’s an honor to work with someone like Master Jose Torres, who has so much passion and pride for what he does,” shared Mohammed Qissi. “He’s an amazing person and a phenomenal martial arts master. I truly believe Jose is going to do an amazing job and truly explode on the screen. The audience is going to love him.”
“I can’t wait for everyone to see Jose in action. He’s going to blow people away with not only the fight scenes but his dramatic ones as well,” said Director Jim Towns.
