JACK WALKER: A Washed Up Action Star Must Become a Real Life Hero in the Trailer for the UK Action-Comedy

By: John M Jerva

What happens when a washed up action film star must become a real life action hero? That’s the premise for the new UK action-comedy Jack Walker. Starring Stefan Morawietz as the titular good guy and martial arts wiz Mike Möller performing his usual gravity defying stunts, this one looks like an indie action good time. Check out the new trailer below!

International martial arts action phenomenon Mike Möller co-produces, fight choreographs and co-stars in the action-packed comedy ‘JACK WALKER’ which will be released in the UK on 3rd May 2021 on all major digital platforms. Denise Treffler produces, with genre industry veteran Mike Leeder (‘ABDUCTION’, ‘POUND OF FLESH’) as associate producer. Highly experienced stunt co-ordinator Tanay Genco Ulgen takes the reins as director.

JACK WALKER’ takes a satirical look at the difficulties of making a low budget action film, showing us the comedic side of working on a low budget independent film set. To boost the value of their indie title the crew hire ‘Jack Walker’, a fading 90’s action star that unfortunately is behind on the current times. Things are bad enough, with stunts going wrong and lacklustre catering, but then the film set is taken over by a gang of ruthless drug dealers! Walker and the film crew will have to fight for their lives if they hope to survive!

Walker is played by stuntman and actor Stefan Morawietz (‘SKY SHARKS’, ‘IP MAN 2’) who has featured in numerous Chinese TV series, movies and commercials, as well as international films. Stefan has returned to his home country of Germany and is currently a successful personal trainer and fitness blogger.

Synopsis – Jack Walker is the prototype 90’s action star. But while the millennium has changed, he hasn’t. Jack is about to hit rock bottom when he almost misses his final chance for a comeback, and what a comeback it is. What started out as a low-budget, no-name C- Movie becomes a game of life and death. When the crew is taken hostage by ruthless drug runners it is up to Jack and the stunt team to fight their way out for real!

Co-producer Mike Möller has always been extremely passionate about martial arts and action films and ‘JACK WALKER’ perfectly combines the two. Moller began his professional career when he was hired to work as a stuntman with the legendary Donnie Yen (‘ROGUE ONE’, ‘IP MAN’). Since then, Moller has been nominated for the Taurus World Stunt Award in the Best Fight category for the movie ‘HALF PAST DEAD’. Moller’s own first indie martial arts film ‘ONE MILLION KLICKS’ won the award for Best Action Picture at the Movieville International Film Festival.

Fans of action cinema should get a kick (pardon the pun) out of this one as it takes a satirical jab at the behind the scenes craziness of indie action filmmaking. Co-star Mike Möller is a definite plus for the action sequences and lead Stefan Morawietz looks spot on as the washed up action star looking to reclaim his past glory. It’s hard to accept getting older and here’s a film that shows us that we all just might have a little more in the tank when the time comes to stand up and dust yourself off.

Other cast members include Michaela Schaffrath, Ron Holzschuh, and Denis Lyons with Corey Tanay Genco Ulgen helming.
