Independent filmmaker Michael Matteo Rossi (Misogynist 2013) has released the first teaser images from his latest project, the crime thriller Chase. I first got acquainted with Rossi’s work while watching Sable. It was an amazing story of a capable woman who did her best to hold things together while circumstances did their best to spiral out of control. The lead and the cast were exceptional, and included A Nightmare on Elm Street 3 alum, Rodney Eastman. After seeing how Rossi threw flawed but sympathetic characters into a pot of turmoil that thickened up and eventually boiled over, I was looking forward to what he would do next. Smart genre cinema with polished writing and razor sharp edges is something he does well.
He recently released the synopsis and the first images for Chase. Check them out!
Chase is a cold, calculated hitman whose best friend and mentor, Miles, looks at him like a golden racehorse. [He] must prove his loyalty to his mentor while his girlfriend wants to leave the business behind them.
Things start to strain between the two once Chase’s (Damien Puckler: Grimm TV series) girlfriend, Blair (Jessica Morris: Living Among Us 2018), begins to try to form a wedge between the two men as she tries to distance Chase from Miles (Aries Spears: The Hood Of Horror 2006), whom she sees just as a user. Miles, being extremely cold himself, concocts a plan to keep Chase in line, but this results in absolute chaos for all the parties.
Chase is produced by veteran indie horror journalist and producer Seth Metoyer, who also produced Heir (2015), After School Massacre (2014), Deadly Revisions (2016), Cell Count (2012), Krampus: The Christmas Devil (2013), and Krampus: The Devil Returns (2016).
