Riggs previously worked with the film’s writer and director R.L. Scott on past movies, including "Touye Pwen: Kill Point" and "Call Me King." "We created this story together — ‘Lazarus’ — but our relationship goes back further than that," Riggs shared. "It’s really difficult to create an action film, because of budget, but now that we live in this era, where tools are more accessible or affordable, we can go out and create something." "Lazarus," which proved to be a hybrid between action and thriller, is jam-packed with stunt coordination and features nearly 80 stuntmen. While Riggs had his own stunt double, he also trained to do his own stunts. "It took a lot of hard work," Riggs said. "I wanted to be that type of actor that can really do a lot of their own stunts."
