All you need to know about Matthew’s project “The Last Hunt”!

The Last Hunt is a short drama film released in 2016 and was screened at the Soho International Film Festival that year. The thriller was directed by Brock Harris and our dear Matthew Daddario. The drama won the award for “Best Short Film” at the Long Island International Film Expo in July 2017.

Synopsis

Cody and Daniel have taken the same hunting trip for over 20 years. However, at some point, Cody ate some bad venison and became infected with “prions”, a protein that causes other proteins to fold improperly in the brain. The disease is referred to as ‘Spongiform Encephalitis’. As his symptoms worsened, Daniel’s ex-girlfriend Crystal positioned herself as a caretaker, the two of them living in a trailer on the outskirts of town. When Daniel arrives at Crystal’s to take Cody on their annual hunt, he realizes quickly that Cody is no longer “all there”. Daniel suits up the delusional man regardless and they take to the woods. Crystal wakes up and finds a VHS tape in Cody’s place. Horrified, she pops it in the VCR and watches the disturbing content. In the footage, Daniel explains that they made a pact upon Cody’s diagnosis: once Cody’s sanity slips and he is no longer himself, Daniel is to put him down. Today is the day he intends to hold up his end of the bargain. With little time to intervene, Crystal calls her current boyfriend, police officer Mathias, who rushes to help her. It’s in this moment that we get lost in the thrill of the chase. Can Daniel go through with the pact? Will Mathias be able to stop him?

Cast & Crew

The cast is composed of Brock Harris as Daniel, Creed Garnick as Cody, Tanaya Beatty as Crystal and Matthew Daddario as Mathias.

The short film was produced by Sibyl Santiago, Brock Harris and Creed Garnick, and had as its executive producer Matthew Daddario. This crew all recently joined forces once again to work on a new documentary called Nomad Cowboys, which will be launched in 2017.

All you need to know about Harry’s new project “Crazy Rich Asians”!

Crazy Rich Asians was written by Kevin Kwan back in 2013, rising quickly in the charts, it became a best-seller that year. Thanks to its popularity, the novel was followed by a sequel China Rich Girlfriends in 2015.

The book was picked up by Warner Bros. Studios in late 2016 and its movie adaptation will be helmed by Jon M. Chu, best known for Now You See Me 2, Step Up 2: The Streets (2008) and Step Up 3D (2010) – the last two movies starring Harry Shum Jr. This will be the first time since Joy Luck Club in 1993 that an American-Hollywood studio backed up an all-Asian cast. The principal photography for the movie was completed June 24, 2017 in Singapore. As of now, there is no word on when the adaption will be released to the public.

The plot

The plot follows Nick Young a history professor at NYU who is falling in love with fellow professor Rachel Chu. When traveling back to Singapore to attend his best friend’s wedding, he decides to invite Rachel to come with him. Although, before long, his secret is out: Nick is from a family that is impossibly wealthy and he’s perhaps the most eligible bachelor in Asia. Of course, every single woman in his ultra-rarefield social class is incredibly jealous of Rachel and wants to bring her down. Henceforth, it’s Rachel’s goal to prove that she is worthy to be his wife.

The cast

When it comes to the casting choices, Terri Taylor didn’t disappoint us. Constance Wu’s role was one of the first to be cast, as her character, Rachel Chu, has one of the most important storylines. The Young Family was later on chosen with Henry Golding as Nicholas Young and Michelle Yeoh as his over-calculating mother, Eleanor Young. Nick’s cousin, Astrid Leon will be portrayed by Gemma Chan. Our beloved Harry Shum Jr will play Charlie Wu*, a character that definitely distinguishes itself from any of Shum’s previous roles.

*Harry’s character is Astrid Leon’s tech billionaire ex-fiancé who still has feelings for her despite being married to someone else. Astrid’s parents disapprove of him because he does not come from an old-money family like her.
