Toronto International Film Festival : Exclusive Video Interview with Manny Perez on his Directorial Debut Film, ‘La Soga 2’

I had the pleasure of interviewing the talented and congenial Manny Perez back in April – my very first interview for – when he was starring in Night of the Sicario, and he mentioned during that conversation that he was finishing work on a sequel to La Soga, which premiered in 2009 at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Now, with this year’s edition of TIFF in full swing, Perez is back in Toronto and ready to world premiere La Soga 2, which also serves as his directorial debut. The eternally gracious Perez was more than happy to take some time on the eve of the film’s opening to share what’s different about the sequel and how he feels about sharing this story with audiences.

You can watch the video below, along with an official summary and where to watch.

Film summary: The dramatic, action-packed follow-up to LA SOGA, brings us back to former hitman Luisito Valerio, aka “La Soga”, who has settled into a new peaceful, small-town life with his girlfriend Lia. Life could not be sweeter… After his girlfriend goes missing, Luisito soon discovers that his newfound happiness is only temporary, as his past comes back to haunt him. He ventures down a road that puts him at war with a long list of enemies, including vicious hitmen, a corrupt federal agent, and a vengeful and cunning femme-fatale Colombian Assassin.

Here’s the trailer for the film:

La Soga 2 makes its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Friday, September 10th in the Contemporary World Cinema section.
