At the AMERICAN FILM MARKET 2011, writer-director and action star Taimak (aka Taimak Guarriello) was introducing buyers to a brand new film of his called I’VE SEEN THINGS which reunites him with his THE LAST DRAGON co-star Leo O’Brien
The film has 35 minutes completed as a show reel and Guarriello was encouraged by friend Joel Eisenberg at EMO Films to come out to the AFM and meet distributors about potential completion funds. The experience has been a positive one for the filmmaker.
“We did it on a small budget and I did basically everything,” says Guarriello. “Now it’s at a point where people are interested in financing a full feature.”
The film, shot in New York, follows a detective played by Guarriello who is looking for a psychopath and ends up getting involved with the maniac’s sister-in-law who is being pursued by bad guys.
The most interesting part of the film is that it reunites Guarriello with his THE LAST DRAGON star Leo O’Brien (he played his little brother in that classic 1980s cult film).
“Leo had a run in with some characters who shot him a few times in Harlem,” says Guarriello. “ I hadn’t seen him in a long time so I went to the hospital. I wanted to give him good energy, so we turned it into a positive and I offered him a role in the movie.”
