Though Mark-Paul Gosselaar has certainly escaped the curse that has plagued many a teen icon with his work on shows like NYPD Blue and Franklin & Bash, a part of me still always sees a grown up Zack Morris. And that’s why this exclusive clip from Lionsgate’s new action thriller, Precious Cargo, is so fun. Sure, Gosselaar is playing a premier thief in this madcap heist caper, but admit it: it also seems like Zack has gotten into some VERY strange trouble on a special episode of Saved By the Bell. Double the fun.
Precious Cargo stars Bruce Willis as a bloodthirsty crime lord (of course) on the hunt for a femme fatale thief (an expertly cast Claire Forlani) who recently botched one of his jobs. She enlists the help of her ex-lover, Gosselaar (heh) to go after a collection of…. PRECIOUS CARGO… I mean, precious gems. As with any good crime caper, plenty of twists and turns ensue. After all, it’s not a heist movie without a little double-crossing, right?
