We had the pleasure of welcoming the award winning movie and TV producer Krisgreet into the offices of The Hollywood Times. We sat down to chat about his recent release, BOJ: Beginnings. He shared his thoughts on the past of the original franchise along with where he sees it going in the future.

How does it feel to bring Badge of Justice from TV to theaters?

KG: It feels amazing, It feels like the completion of the first part of the franchise that started years ago on the now defunct CMC Network. It’s been a long road, it definitely took a lot longer because, of course, life got in the way but we finally did it and like I said it feels amazing. We still have a long way to go to get where I want to be with the franchise.

Can you tell us a little about BOJ: Beginnings?

KG: Well it was important for us to do this for a few reason, first we debuted way back in 2006. That’s almost ten years. The player base has changed, the audience has changed a lot since then. So we wanted to do something where we could close this chapter but also introduce the audience to the characters so we used the flashbacks to season 1 as a way to do that and you also get a sense of the character that is Jack Carter (played by Michael Biehn, pictured above), all his tragedies that have made him who he is. Those tragedies are something he had control of and could do something about after but in the first part of Beginnings he has no control whatsoever over this not so much a tragedy but an obstacle and that scares the hell out of him and makes him realize what is important to him.

Where does Badge of Justice go from here?

KG: Well obviously at the end of Beginnings, it no secret that we end up going back to LA. I am not going to to give too much away but storyline we have lined up is a good one which we see Carter taking control of his own team within the LAPD. I am also planning on expanding the universe with two new spin offs. Similar to Chicago Fire where they have done a PD and Medical. I have already introduced the Medical side of it in Beginnings. I will be adding the fire department maybe in the next film or the one after. We are also going to be revisiting the Las Vegas spin off with it’s own film and the character of Dylan showing up in LA at some point.

What else do you have in the works?

KG: Oh well that’s the million dollar question, I have a lot of ideas and scripts started but it’s getting the time to focus on them. At the moment I’m focused on Badge Of Justice and expanding the universe. I’m also plotting more DC films. So I certainly have my hands full.

BOJ: Beginnings from Flip Brothers Studio and KG Productions is currently playing in theaters!

That’s what Judge Reinhold had to say when we asked him about his role in Ship of Fooles’ new film Seeker.

“I’ve been hanging around that courthouse for what seems like five years or more, willing to work for free. And it took this long to get hired? That’s crazy.”

Regardless of the wait, Reinhold voices the personification of Blizzard, one of many natural or conceptual beings which appear in the film.

“Lucian told me he picked me due to my work on Seinfeld. My infamous ‘close talker’ role,” confided Reinhold. “I am not entirely sure what that has to do with a blizzard but I’ll take the job.”

Some producers do not realize there are numerous special deals scattered around the city map, though many are not updated when used and changes are rarely made overall. Whether it be a hidden crypt or sign, or the more obvious deals at Malibu airport and the train station in the valley, there are some nice deals out there. It remains to be seen if Reinhold will be replaced at the courthouse or will continue to work for free. The good news is: he will finally be in the htgmdb.

Seeker opened December 12th, watch it in theaters now!
