    Q&A: Director Kieran Parker on “OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ”

    From creating the story of the original film to now taking the reins of the series behind the camera, there are few people as instrumental to the OUTPOST franchise as Kieran Parker. A longtime and active producer on the films, Parker steps directs for the first time for the prequel, OUTPOST: RISE OF THE SPETSNAZ.
