Tribeca 2013: Interview with Zoe Bell, Josh C. Waller, Rebecca Marshall, Doug Jones & Tracie Thoms about ‘Raze’


As the title would CLEARLY imply, we had a pretty awesome conversation with a bunch of the folks involved with the film Raze, celebrating its World Premiere at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. We chat with director Josh C. Waller and cast mates Zoe Bell, Rebecca Marshall, Doug Jones & Tracie Thoms.

Josh C. Waller – director and co-writer of the screenplay of Raze – has a pretty solid footing in the world of film and entertainment. Having produced a number of films – a combination of shorts, features and documentaries – Waller presents his feature film directorial debut at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. He is currently working on his next project, McCanick, which will star Raze co-stars Rachel Nichols and Tracie Thoms, in addition to Mike Vogel, Ciarán Hinds and David Morse.

Zoe Bell really needs no introduction. Xena: Warrior Princess to Kill Bill, Bell has established herself as the Queen of Stunts, having collaborated with Quentin Tarantino on a variety of his films. She has also established herself as a fine actress, providing remarkable performances in films such as Oblivion, Gamer and Bitch Slap. She is currently working on a number of projects including The Devil’s Ink – co-directed by Devon Downs and Kenny Gage and starring herself, RJ Mitte and Yvette Yates.

Rebecca Marshall is a fellow Torontonian, now living in LA. She has appeared in a number of films, including Saw 3D, That’s My BoyLife TrackerRepo! The Genetic Opera and an episode of Two and a Half Men. She will partner up with a lot of her Raze co-stars and crew – including  Adrienne Wilkinson and Jordan James Smith – in Orson Speilcock III’s Gangbusters.

Among a handful of Television appearances such as The Good Wife and Person of Interest, Tracie Thoms was last seen on the big screen in Rian Johnson’s Looper as Beatrix. Thoms is best known for playing Kat Miller on the hit television show Cold Case, appearing in over 100 episodes. She is also known for playing Joanne Jefferson in the film adaptation of the hit Broadway show, RENT, the love interest of Maureen Johnson played  by Idina Menzel. As mentioned before, she will be seen in Waller’s McCanick, starring opposite Rachel Nichols.

Doug Jones is perhaps best known as Abe Sapien, role he will reprise in Hellboy 3. He has a strong working relationship with Guillermo del Toro, having worked with him on his award-winning film Pan’s Labyrinth. He has a ton of new films in the works, including a project with director Gregori J. Martin called Unhallowed starring opposite Dee Wallace, Tyler Christopher and Miriam Colon.
