ALEX DIAZ Is Doing A Movie With 'Avatar' Star SAM WORTHINGTON
Comeback is real for Alex Diaz! After a controversial 2019, he's bouncing back this year.
Who knew that jumping off a bridge at the start of this year would be a premonition to the latter part of this year? The uncertainty, the unwillingness to take the leap, the being pushed off that platform and that breath i held onto so tightly as it all came down—then the bungee which was all of you, who caught me, held me safely in your care. This year changed me for the better, through the highest of highs and lowest of lows I resolved the issues of the child within me—my preconditions and I can proudly I made it, and Im here for whats to come. #2019 goes out to my team @cornerstone and my dear fans and supporters. With no exaggeration, this year could have killed me. You know how in the movies the protagonist usually has to go through some life threatening situation to get what he was searching for only to realize that he gained so much more? Yeah, thats what happened this year. I love you all. I love everyone I gained, I love everyone I lost. I love the ones who hurt me, the ones who healed me and the ones who simply helped me along the way. In the words of Kris Aquino, #Lovelovelove 🤘🏻😂 —but in all seriousness. from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thats all. #2019 @flgmagazine @cincodemayhemph @axe_recommends #rip @iamtikkit miss you every day. @ella.killa and to you and what we have—and to accepting each other from the start, thank you. Happy New Year Elle. ☺️
The former MYX VJ is set to appear opposite Avatar star Sam Worthington in the upcoming action thriller CounterPlay. The Australian actor will play a former hostage negotiator who comes out of retirement to help Alex's character who has been wrongly accused of drug trafficking.
Formerly known as Escape, the film sees the Avatar star play John Craig, a retired kidnap and ransom hostage negotiator who comes out of retirement to take on one last job. The daunting task is to help a young man, played by up-and-coming actor/musician Alex Diaz (@alexandermcdizz) , who has been wrongly accused of trafficking drugs to escape and return to his home and family in Australia.
CounterPlay will be shot in the Philippines later this year with Maria director Pedring Lopez at the helm.
A fan of the Avatar franchise, Alex shared his excitement on Instagram. "Excited as our film at @mamholdingsinc was finally announced at the Berlin Film Festival the other day."
It isn't the first time Worthington is working with Pinoys. He co-starred in the 2005 war film The Great Raid about the raid of the Cabanatuan island during World War II.
