Working my website for the past 5 years, I have made some wonderful friends in the entertainment industry and one standout is director, writer and producer Daniel Zirilli who has dished out some of the best action has to offer in recent years. From titles like The Asian Connection starring Steven Seagal and Michael Jai White to the upcoming Invincible featuring Action-FLIX favorites Johnny Strong and Marko Zaror, Zirilli is keeping busy with a host of projects for the future. Zirilli has always been gracious to me and Action-Flix.com and I’m always ready and able to help promote his awesome and adrenaline pumping action film releases.
One notable title is Hollow Point which stars Luke Goss, Michael Pare, JuJu Chan and Dilan Jay which tells the story of one ordinary man who becomes embroiled in the dark underbelly world of vigilantes.
Zirilli has been seeing a great deal of success with the film as it makes the rounds on the festival circuit including the NOIDENTITY International Action Film Festival In Spain where he won Best Director and the Iron Dragon TV Action Fest in Austin, Texas where the film won Best Action Film.
Zirilli has always been great to me and my site and he sent a video of the closing ceremonies of the Jackie Chan International Action Film Week where he was invited to screen Hollow Point. Take a look at the Director with Jackie Himself below! Thanks Daniel!
Official Press Release: Zirilli was invited to screen his action thriller Hollow Point following its multiple wins at the NOIDENTITY International Action Film Festival Spain (NIAFFS) including BEST DIRECTOR, and the Iron Dragon TV Action Fest in Austin, Texas, BEST ACTION FILM. This video mostly from Zirilli’s POV on the red carpet & closing cermony in the Datong Stadium in China. Zirilli, was accompanied by Wu Assassins – co-star JuJu Chan who also headlines the film. Hollow Point also stars Luke Goss, Jay Mohr, Michael Pare, Bill Duke, Roger Guenveur Smith, Natalie Burn, and the debut of actor Dilan Jay who also produces the film with Adel Nur.
Hollow Point centers on a college professor whose wife and daughter are killed in the crossfire of a botched crime. He then bands together with a vigilante lawyer and a team of underground avengers to wage a war against the criminals infesting their city.
Along with Hollow Point, Zirilli also has the highly anticipated action-thriller Invincible hitting soon which stars action greats Johnny Strong and Marko Zaror as well as Acceleration which he co-directed with Michael Marino. That film stars a heavyweight cast also including Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Liddell and Danny Trejo. Acceleration hits select cinemas and Digital next month on November 8th.
Zirilli has also helmed plenty of MMA thrillers including Locked Down which featured Vinnie Jones, Rashad Evans and the late, great Kimbo Slice.
Zirilli has recently created a new Instagram page where you can keep updated on all his projects and you can view the special video sent to me from Jackie’s Festival in the link below and also in the player underneath! Check out the trailer for Hollow Point as well which includes plenty of firepower, fisticuffs and action that you can handle!
