The production company (Brainstorm Entertainment) based in Johanesburg, South Africa has just completed a feature length film entitled “The Killing of Wendy.” The film is a dark comedy starring, Vanessa Bell Calloway in the title role, Michael Boatman, Rachel True, Leila Arcieri, Caroline Chikezie, Bianca Lawson, Drew Sidora, Natalie Reid, Natalie Raitano, Angell Conwell and Melissa De Sousa.
The movie centers on the investigation into the murder of Wendy Johnson, an aging over-the-hill actress who has been blackmailing 9 other Hollywood types (Agent, Writer, Producer, Director and 5 actresses). A detective Blake (Boatman) is called in to interrogate the women, but his questioning is severely compromised as he is not only a detective, but an aspiring screenwriter, actor and rapper and sees the interrogation as his way into “Hollywood.”
The film was shot entirely in South Africa directed by David Hickson, written by Jason Conway and produced by Eddie Chitate, Robi Reed and Ernest Gumbo. The film’s anticipated release date is in March or April of 2009.
