Producer/director Jeff Chitty of Digital Grindhouse Entertainment dropped us a line with some early info on and a few exclusive photos from his current project The Taking of Savannah, which is filming in the Kansas City, Missouri, area now with an anticipated completion date in the next month or two.
Five thugs and an unknowing girlfriend make a BIG mistake when they kidnap and hold young Hollywood “celebutante” Savannah Sondheim (heiress to the Sondheim tissue fortune) for a weekend to collect a ransom. When Savannah escapes, it becomes a brutal fight for survival where friends turn against one another and fight for their lives.
The film’s cast list is as follows: SAVANNAH – Krystal Heib (Fetch), ASHLEY – Denise Carroll (Fetch), SCOTT – Antoine Williams, SPENCER – Mike Ducey, FINN – Jeremy Everts, RIFF – Cameron Haines, and TORG – John D. Barnes. Dustin Adair penned the script from which Chitty is directing, the DP is Robert P. Campbell, and the film’s makeup and FX are being handled by Colleen May (Fetch, Nailbiter).
Chitty promises a teaser is coming our way shortly so in the meantime dig on some stills below, befriend Jeff Chitty on Facebook, follow the progress of the shoot via @dgrindhouse_ent on Twitter, and visit the official Digital Grindhouse Entertainment site.
In the first two shots Savannah is tied to a chair in the room in which her kidnappers are storing her. In the third she’s escaped, and Scott, Riff, Torg, and Finn are searching for her. Below that she’s being attached by Scott. Picture 5 shows Spencer taking some aggression out, and in Picture 6 Savannah’s wounds have mended and she’s ready for revenge!
