AJ Muhlach, Phobe Walker & Ali Khatibi Now Ready For Action in Double Barrel

AJ Muhlach sheds his boy-next-door persona as VIVA Films launches him as the newest action star in the very timely film “Double Barrel”, by master director Toto Natividad.    He is paired with Phoebe Walker who won Best Supporting Actress at the 2016 Metro Manila Film Festival for her performance in the horror film “Seklusyon”.  

Muhlach plays the role of Jeff, a drug pusher who gets caught during an extensive police operation at a slum area.  After begging for his life, Jeff is spared from being killed on the condition that he will become an asset to the police.  He must divulge all the names of the drug lords he knows and join the authorities in extrajudicial killings (EJK).    

Muhlach underwent rigorous fitness training as proven by his Instagram post last March.  This former member of the boy group XLR8 showed off his well-toned body that is perfect for his role.  Before this big break, he was seen in “Diary ng Panget”, “Talk Back and You’re Dead”, “Para sa Hopeless Romantic”, “Chain Mail”, and “Felix Manalo”.  Muhlach also starred in the TV series “P.S. I Love You”, and “Bagets Just Got Lucky”.

Phoebe Walker plays Martha, Jeff’s wife whose love for him leaves her with no choice but to take part in the never-ending violence.  Armed with a gun and shooting down drug personalities, she and her husband are tagged as “mag-asawang birador”.  

Aside from the Erik Matti film “Seklusyon”, Walker’s other movies are “Unconventional” and “Gayuma”.  This half-Filipino, half-British talented VIVA artist was part of the girl group Eurasia.

Ali Khatibi, Mix Martial Arts expert and model is excited on his first film Double Barrel. He plays as a loyal subordinate to Jeric Raval & both of them are police officer who insist on eradicating drug users and pusher.

Jeric Raval, one of the biggest action stars in the ‘90s, joins the cast.  He plays Inspector Bagani, a headstrong police officer who insists on eradicating drug users and pushers despite orders from his superiors to stop EJK.  

High-speed vehicular chases, hand-to-hand combat, not to mention gun fights and explosions, are employed in this engrossing action movie that is based on a true story. Directed by Toto Natividad. “Double Barrel” is showing in cinemas nationwide starting August 2, 2017.
