Matthias Hues’ Upcoming Schedule

Matthias Hues (Mission of Justice, Death Match and more) is one of The Action Elite’s favourite action stars; known mostly for playing villains, in reality he is in fact a complete gentleman.

His company Off Grid Pictures have several movies coming up and we have details below.





The first is called Sleeper: Deadly Recall and the plot as as follows:

SYNOPSIS: Sarah, an American Sleeper agent is sent to Europe to retrieve officially lost CIA Intel. Unbeknownst to Sarah she has been active in Europe on and off since the cold war. Each time she is sent back under hypnosis and with different identities, of which she later has no recollection.
The current mission is a one way ticket as CIA field agent Howard Stone intends to rid the CIA of all Sleeper agents, as in some cases the memory is starting to break through and national security is at risk. Alexander Krauss, a burned out CIA agent at the end of his career is assigned to bring Sarah to Europe for her last mission, posing as her fake husband.
Once activated Sarah becomes a deadly killing machine and does not recognize Alexander Krauss, who turns rogue once he realizes she has been set up. She is ordered to kill him as he desperately tries to save her from an invariable death sentence upheld by the CIA.


Next up is Shadow Affairs: Broken Identity

SYNOPSIS: Mark Anderson, a decorated US elite sniper in Iraq signs up for one last tour against the plea of his pregnant wife Diane, a CIA field agent stationed in Uzbekistan. Then just before he can return to Iraq they lose their unborn child in a tragic car accident.  Anderson falls apart. Enlists for one final tour in Iraq while his wife returns to the states heartbroken.

During a routine traffic stop in Iraq Anderson mistakes four civilians for insurgents, killing them at a check-point. Once discharged, he drinks his life away in Central Asia not able to face his wife in the states who has filed for divorce.
A former private security agency deployed from Iraq hires Anderson for a CIA covert sniper job at the Afghanistan Border.  With nothing to lose he goes on a death-defying mission, and one he is not supposed to survive.   Set up as part of a political chess game he becomes the most hunted man in the region. Anderson is forced to erase his identity and disappears in the safety of the desolate Azerbaijan Mountains.
It is then when Anderson finally finds peace, a new love and converts to Muslim.
But soon his new life is interrupted as the CIA picks up his trail. With a new child on the way and a beautiful Azerbaijan Muslim wife, his hidden identity becomes threatened. With no way out he agrees to work undercover for the CIA in all of Central Asia as a central informer and V man.
Anderson turns into one of the most prolific crime lords in Central Asia covered by the CIA with the mission to infuse cash into the security force in Afghanistan who is willing to fight Al-Qaeda.
A new scandal in Washington occurs when the CIA’s cash operation is blown wide open and becomes the headline news all around the world.  Walker, the CIA field officer in charge of central affairs in Asia, has no choice but to cut Anderson loose and make him the fall guy for the cash operation and the undercover drug dealing.  In order to make it a believable manhunt Walker assigns Anderson’s ex wife Diane to the case and secretly orders both to be murdered by local security Insurgents and Russian Weapon dealers.
