FIST PLUS FACE: A Formula For Action And Laughs In The Spirit Of Jeet Kune Do
Fist Plus Face features actor and martial arts stunt impressario Jonny Caines, whose latest feats of action saw him perform in the Jabronie Pictures action short, Do The Damn Thing In Canada, and in a recent short fight demo shot by Leo Kei Angelos. In Laidlaw's new shortfilm, Caines stars as a daydreaming restaurant patron whose affections for a register girl (Nikki Grant) leave him walking a line between a fantasy where he gets the girl after singlehandedly neutralizing three thugs trying to rob the place, and an unfortunate, smelly reality.
On top of music videos, preparing a pilot later this year and designing graphics and VFX for MTV, Laidlaw also plans to return to his Jeet Kune Do roots with a sci-fi action shortfilm that will hopefully see its shoot start before 2015, with further reconsideration for reviving his old traning regimen with Ferreira at the helm.
As of this month, Caines now holds additional stunt credits in the recent releases of Robocop and Pompeii, and the upcoming action horror thriller, Wolves, and is also expected to pop-up in an upcoming issue of "Inside Fitness Magazine" by April or May, all while sharpening his skills as an actor. Other independent action projects will also feature Caines collaborating with fellow indie filmmaker and actor Yung Lee, as well as seeing to Team 2X's current production and forthcoming release of the team's martial arts sci-fi action feature-length debut, Meza (formerly known as Genetix).
