Filmmaker Michael Matteo Rossi has teamed up with manager/producer Ben Press (formally of ICM Partners and Primary Wave) to option and package Michael’s next feature script titled Shadows.

 

The action thriller script tells the story of a young low-level drug dealer is reunited with his estranged mom and uncle to protect him when a ruthless drug kingpin puts a hit on him. Fresh off his latest feature Chase, which has been doing quite well in the film festival circuit, most notably being an official selection at the upcoming Boston International Film Festival and Bare Bones Film Festival and also picking up awards at the Hollywood Reel Film Festival and Calcutta International Cult Film Festival!

 

Michael tells us “I knew with the momentum of Chase that I’d have to raise the bar that much more with my next feature and had to align myself with a producer that has great connections and believed in the script and that’s why I was thrilled when Ben came on board. It’s all very exciting.”

 

Chase is to be released later this year and we will keep you posted as more develops with Shadows!
