Beattie, Chesser try a little ‘Tenderness’

“Forever Young” thesp Isabel Glasser has been cast alongside James Remar, Malcolm McDowell and newcomer Sean Haberle in the hospital suspense thriller “Exquisite Tenderness,” a Baer & Beattie/Chesser production for Capella International/Connexion.

Swiss director Carl Shenkel began shooting the $ 10 million-plus thriller on July 8 in Vancouver, according to producers Alan Beattie and Chris Chesser.

Willi Baer co-produces; exec producers are David Korda and Cappela’s Ortwin Freyermuth. Negotiations for domestic distribution are under way and Cappela/Connexion will handle foreign sales, Beattie said.

Project reunites producers Beattie and Chesser after “The Wrong Man,” which preemed at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and will bow domestically on Showtime this fall. The duo reteams with Shenkel after the telefilm “Silhouette” starring Faye Dunaway.

Beattie and Chesser originally took Bernard Sloane and Patrick Cirillo’s script to Capella then got Shenkel (“The Mighty Quinn”) on board to direct.

Story revolves around a medical researcher (McDowell) who invents a surgical implant that will save lives. But when one of his patients dies, an investigation points to murder.

Glasser (who made her film debut opposite Mel Gibson in Warner Bros.’ “Forever Young”) stars as an assistant head of surgery who is forced to take the rap for the mysterious death.
