Casting: No Running (Film)

As many fans will know, last month Shane was working on a project in Los Angeles and now we finally have some information! It will be a sci-fi thriller set in a small town in the United States. As we already know from on set pictures shared on social media, Shane will be playing a sheriff, and reading the synopsis shared by Variety below, it sounds like that is quite an integral part of the story so that should be exciting!

Taryn Manning, Shane West, Hart Denton, Skylan Brooks, and Rutina Wesley have been cast in the upcoming sci-fi thriller “No Running,” Variety has learned exclusively.

“No Running” is Delmar Washington’s feature directorial debut. Tucker Morgan wrote the script, about a young black teen who recently relocated to a small town and is wrongfully blamed for the mysterious disappearance of his biracial girlfriend. With only 48 hours to prove his innocence, he must flee the law as he uncovers supernatural abductions that have plagued the community for decades.

Maurice Fadida is producing alongside Eric B. Fleischman of Defiant Studios. Jan MaCadoo, Mickey Gooch, Jr. and Diane Gooch of Kodiak will serve as executive producers. The film has started production in Los Angeles.

Although the article states that production has began in Los Angeles, anyone following along Shane’s Instagram or our social media will know that the film wrapped initial principal photography last month and is currently in post-production. You can check out some behind the scenes photos that were shared on social media both by Shane and some other members of the cast/crew in the gallery, linked below. I’m sure I am not the only one who is loving the grey in Shane’s hair! #silverfox

[Casting] Shane joins ‘Gossamer Folds’

Great news fellow Westaholics – Shane has joined the cast of ‘Gossamer Folds‘ which has already began production in Baton Rouge (and we are also so excited that Shane is finally getting the chance to film a movie in his home state after working in the business for 20+ years!)  – you can read the press release from Deadline.com below where it shares some information on the plot and also Shane’s character.

I personally am looking forward to this project so much and I am also so excited to see Shane take on new and interesting characters.

EXCLUSIVE: Yeardley Smith and Ben Cornwell’s Paperclip Ltd and Mill House Motion Pictures announced today that their forthcoming drama Gossamer Folds starring Alexandra Grey (Transparent, When We Rise) and Jackson Robert Scott (It) has begun production. The Lisa Donato-directed film written by Bridget Flanery has also added Sprague Grayden, Shane West, Ethan Suplee, and Franklin Ojeda Smith.

Yeardley Smith will also appear along with Brenda Currin (In Cold Blood, The World According to Garp) and Jen Richards (Mrs. Fletcher, Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City). Ava Benjamin Shorr (Disclosure: Trans Lives on Screen, Baja Come Down) serves as DP.

The film is set in 1986 and tells the story of ten-year-old Tate (Scott) who is uprooted from the big city and unceremoniously moved to a small town where he is forced to spend a lonely summer bearing witness to his parents’ disintegrating marriage (West and Grayden). Tate ends up befriending his new next-door neighbors, recently retired English professor, Edward Bryant (Ojeda Smith) and his transgender daughter, Gossamer, (Grey). Despite his father’s knee-jerk transphobia and his mother’s misplaced protectiveness, Tate forms a deep friendship with fellow misfit, Gossamer that changes his life and the lives of their families.

The announcement of the project continues Hollywood’s slow and steady campaign for authentic representation and narratives of marginalized communities. In the case of Gossamer Folds, its transgender representation with Tate and LGBTQ advocate Donato behind the camera as director. Nick Adams, Director of Transgender Media & Representation at GLAAD, advised the project during pre-production. Paperclip reached out to GLAAD after reading the TRANSform Hollywood guide created by GLAAD and 5050by2020, a project of Time’s Up. These resources are designed to help content creators who are telling stories that include transgender characters.

Gossamer Folds is financed by Paperclip Ltd. Smith and Cornwell of Paperclip will produce alongside Jordan Foley and Jonathan Rosenthal of Mill House Motion Pictures and Adam Carl. The project is the third collaboration between Paperclip and Mill House. The two worked on All Square, which won the Audience Award at SXSW 2018. They also worked on the John Hyams thriller Alone which is slated for a 2019 release.

Grayden is represented by Untitled Entertainment and AKA Talent Agency. Franklin Ojeda Smith is represented by Headline Talent Agency and Bohemia Group.
