Next week will be our first day of shooting and we are really excited. We have an amazing script from John Buffalo Mailer, a great director in Michelle Danner, and an awesome cast which includes Norman Reedus from “The Boondok Saints” and Martha Higareda from “Street Kings”. Here is the synopsis to our film.
