May 7, 2022

Action Star Kelly Greyson discusses with Jan Price her new film, “Fortress 2: Sniper’s Eye,” starring Bruce Willis! “Fortress 2: Sniper’s Eye” is currently available in select theaters, digital platforms, and VOD!

Starring Bruce Willis, this action cyber-thriller continues the adventure that began in Fortress. Weeks after the deadly assault on Fortress Camp, Robert (Bruce Willis) makes a daring rescue to save Sasha, the widow of his old nemesis Balzary (Chad Michael Murray, “One Tree Hill”). But back in the camp’s command bunker, it appears Sasha may have devious plans of her own. As a new attack breaks out, Robert is confronted with a familiar face he thought he’d never see again. Fortress, released at the end of 2021, takes place at a high-end resort that is a cover for a secret military compound hiding compromised agents. In this dazzling action flick, Bruce Willis plays Robert, a retired CIA agent living at the top-secret “Fortress” in the jungle who faces a team of revenge-seeking mercenaries.

Greyson, who does all her own stunts, represents a refreshing anomaly from the typical Hollywood starlet, and her ability to impact, inspire and motivate goes far beyond the screen.
