With a new hit fall TV series keeping him busy (Sleepy Hollow on Fox), as well as an action-drama web series he released earlier this year exclusively on the popular Machinima Prime channel on YouTube, titled Tainted Love, Orlando Jones has had a good 2013, as it comes to its end.
And he’ll enter 2014 with what looks like a bang, starring in a Lionsgate thriller, directed by Peter Hyams (Timecop, The Relic, The Musketeer), titled Enemies Closer, which follows two sworn enemies within a forest on the US-Canadian border, who are forced to work together to escape a ruthless drug cartel hell-bent on retrieving a drug shipment which went missing there.
Jones plays one of the two sworn enemies, alongside Tom Everett Scott, with Jean-Claude Van Damme, who seems to be making something of a comeback (although he’s been here for years!), playing the maniacal leader of the drug cartel, as you’ll see in the new trailer below.
The $5 million Enemies Closer opens on January 24, 2014.
