Sometimes movie publicists are telepathic. Last week I was thinking about The Hamptons and how it's weird that I've never been but I'm so eager to spend every weekend there this fall shivering from the icy cold glares of Victoria Grayson and Emily Thorne (Revenge returns Sunday night ~Holla). Then a friend who had never seen Scarface (1983) sent me a text that was basically like “Steven Bauer ♥ omg!” to which I responded with a “Queue Thief of Hearts - it's pure Bauer Porn." Last but not least, I was wondering which celebs I should invite as future guest stars and my mind wandered to Sally Kirkland, star of Anna (1987), for which she won the Golden Globe, an Independent Spirit and the Heart of Me.
All of these things were jostling for attention in my crowded celluloid packed-brain for the past few days when what should arrive in my inbox but the first photos from the set of the thriller Awakened which is... wait for it...
A) now shooting in The Hamptons...
B) co-stars my Sally Kirkland
and C) also features Steven Bauer in one of the leading roles.
(Well done, publicity team)
Here are a few more photos.
This one to your right (not a film still just a casual moment on the set) is of principal cast members John Savage, Stelio Savante and Steven Bauer.
The film has been described as a modern Jekyll & Hyde type story but in what way that duality plays in we're not sure. The film is about a young woman (Julianne Michelle up top) who returns home after more than a decade away to discover the truth about her mother's death.
Sally Kirkland plays Harriett (not the young girl's mother).
Edward Furlong (of John Connors fame) and Bryan Dechart (Jane By Design) are also in the cast. The movie is from an emerging indie film company called Supernova Media.
