Cadence turns on ‘Taillights’

Helmer Ingram begins B.C. lensing on Wednesday

Denise Richards, Jake Busey and Breckin Meyer are set to star in Cadence Entertainment’s action comedy “Taillights Fade.”

The pic, directed by Malcolm Ingram, begins a five-week shoot in British Columbia on Wednesday.

Christine Haebler is producing; Scott Kennedy is exec producing, and “Chasing Amy” helmer Kevin Smith is serving as an executive consultant on the film.

Ingram and screenwriter partner Matt Gissing created the project, which Haebler describes as a road rally film in the style of “Smokey and the Bandit.”

It’s about two couples racing across Canada to help a jailed friend by emptying his warehouse full of pot before the cops find it.

Elizabeth Berkeley, Margot Kidder and Tanya Allen round out the cast.

Richardson, whose credits include “Starship Troopers” and “Wild Things,” was repped in the deal by the Gersh Agency’s Chuck James and manager Carol Bodie.

Meyer, who is currently shooting “Go” for Banner and TriStar, starred in “Dancer Texas, Pop. 81.” He’ll next be seen in Miramax’s “54.” The UTA’s Sharon Sheinwold and manager Bonnie Burnstein negotiated on his behalf.

Busey’s recent roles include “Contact” and “Enemy of the State.” He was repped by William Morris agents Joanne Roberts Wiles, John Fogelman and Theresa Peters.

“Taillights,” which was financed by the state-sponsored production fund Telefilm Canada, will be distributed in Canada by Motion Intl. All other rights are available.
