Billy Baldwin and Elizabeth Mitchell (“The Linda McCartney Story”) will head the cast of indie cop thriller “Double Bang,” due to begin principal photography today in Los Angeles.
Baldwin, whose credits include “Backdraft,” “Sliver” and the upcoming “Relative Values,” portrays a police officer seeking to avenge the death of his partner by entering the world of corruption and murder. Mitchell, who has also appeared in “Frequency” and the upcoming “Nurse Betty,” will play his love interest.
Heywood Gould will direct from his own script, adapted from his novel by the same name. Gould’s previous writer/director work includes “One Good Cop,” “Trial by Jury” and TV movie “Mistrial.” His writing credits include “Cocktail,” “Fort Apache: The Bronx” and “The Boys From Brazil.”
“Double Bang” is being financed by Yoram Pelman’s Tomorrow Films. Pelman, whose credits include “The Lesser Evil” and “Til Human Voices Awake Us,” is producing.
The project has been packaged by Paradigm, which reps Baldwin, and Mitchell, who is managed by Seven Summits.
