Thesps join indie drama; Batinkoff making feature directorial debut
Bruce Davison and Randall Batinkoff have come onboard indie drama “37,” set to start shooting next month in Los Angeles.Leila Djansi is producing through her company Turning Point Pictures along with Aarimax Films. Batinkoff is making his feature directorial debut and will helm from a script he co-wrote with Jesse Stratton. Story, based on an unpublished book written by Guy Blews, centers on a rocker (played by Batinkoff) who makes a pact to kill himself when he turns 37 out of guilt over the death of his brother. Several months before his 37th birthday and the release of his comeback album, he falls in love with a terminally ill woman. Davison will play a psychic who helps the rocker find peace.
