Long-stalled ‘Stealing Cars’ Draws Emory Cohen, Mike Epps, Felicity Huffman

Shooting of indie drama has started in NY

Emory Cohen (“Smash”), Mike Epps, Felicity Huffman, John Leguizamo, William H. Macy and Paul Sparks are starring in ensemble indie feature “Stealing Cars” — 14 years after development started.

The project is directed by documentary filmmaker Bradley Kaplan (“Muhammad and Larry”), making his narrative directorial debut. Shooting began recently in New York.

Rachel Winter and Dan Keston are producing. Steve Levinson and Mark Wahlberg are exec producing, along with Erika Hampson.

Winter is a producer on “Dallas Buyers Club,” a film that had been in development since the mid-1990s before going into production a year ago. She first read the “Stealing Cars” script in 1999.

“Stealing Cars,” inspired by true events, centers on a tragic car accident that sends a confident yet rebellious teen (played by Cohen) spiraling downward into the grim injustice of the juvenile penal system. The script was written by Will Aldis and Steve Mackall.

Also starring are Heather Lind, Al Calderon, Leopold Manswell, Jeff Lima, Grace Van Patten, Deema Aitken, Chance Kelly, David Holmes, Craig  Grant, Chris Caldovino, Volney Steffire, Chris Cenatiempo and Black Thought.

Cohen is represented by CAA and Harvest Talent. Leguizamo is represented by UTA, Silver Lining Entertainment and Sloan, Offer, Weber and Dern, LLP. Epps is represented by CAA, Industry Entertainment and Morris, Yorn, Barnes, Levine, Krintzman, Rubenstein, Kohner & Gellman. Huffman is represented by CAA. Macy is represented by WME. Sparks is represented by Gersh and One Entertainment.
