‘Red October’ actor Alec Baldwin is cast in Herbert James Winterstern’s feature film directorial debut ‘Supercell,’ a disaster movie that follows a group of storm chasers. The director previously worked on several episodes of the television show ‘Siberia.’
Short Porch Pictures is currently filming the movie in Georgia and Montana with Highland Film Group picking up international distribution rights to the movie. Winterstern co-wrote the script along with Anna Elizabeth James, best known for writing Netflix’s ‘Deadly Illusions.’
According to a press release, Daniel Diemer (‘The Half of It’), Jordan Kristine Seamón (‘We Are Who We Are’), Skeet Ulrich (‘Armored’), and Anne Heche (‘Superman: Doomsday’) have joined the movie’s cast. Winterstern is producing along with Nathan Klingher and Ryan Donnell Smith.
The synopsis explains, “Supercell tells the thrilling tale of William (Diemer), a good-hearted teenager, who lives in hope of following in his father’s footsteps, the legendary storm chaser Bill Brody who was killed in action. His father’s legacy has been turned into a storm chasing tour business managed by the greedy and reckless owner Zane Rogers (Baldwin). After William runs away from home, he teams up with his dad’s old partner Roy (Ulrich) and enters into the world of storm chasing. But the tornadoes have only gotten bigger. As his mother (Heche) anxiously searches for her son, she’s joined by his classmate (Seamón) in hopes of protecting William as Zane leads the group deep into the eye of the most dangerous supercell ever seen.”
Ulrich said, “I am excited to join this talented group of filmmakers and cast to tell this story. I’ve always been a fan of Alec Baldwin’s work and am honored to have the opportunity to work with him.”
Winterstern echoed those sentiments, saying, “With Skeet, Anne, Daniel, and Jordan joining Alec, I’m so grateful to have such a versatile and talented cast behind this story.”
Baldwin is coming off a Saturday Night Live as well as the sequel ‘The Boss Baby: Family Business.’
