Earlier this year director Matthew Spradlin combined The Breakfast Club with the slasher film in Bad Kids Go to Hell, his debut feature that is currently available On Demand. What’s next for Spradlin? A thriller called The Social Contract, and we’ve got the exclusive scoop on the project!
From the Press Release
Dallas director Matthew Spradlin (Bad Kids Go to Hell) has signed on to US-Latino action thriller The Social Contract, written by award-winning writer Carlito Rodriguez (Flavor Unit Entertainment’s The Tony Story) and starring Dominican Republic actress Katherine Castro (pictured), set to start production at several locations across Los Angeles this month.
Produced by Integrated Arts & Media and co-starring Patricia Rae (The Big Wedding), Hector Hank (The Iceman) and Lex Zellner (“The River”) with stunt coordinator and actor David C. Hernandez (Last Stand of the 300), The Social Contract is a fast paced action thriller following a woman’s (Katherine Castro) dark and violent past until it hastily catches up to her, forcing her to choose between her own salvation and keeping her family alive. Full of twists and turns by the film’s intertwined complex characters, The Social Contract has been designed by Rodriguez to keep the audience alert and questioning not just the woman’s motives, but all others involved.
“We are thrilled to welcome such talented actors and filmmakers to The Social Contract,” said actress and producer Katherine Castro. “Carlito Rodriguez has written yet another outstanding screenplay with ‘Bad Kid’ Matthew Spadlin at the helm of directing. Our expectations for the project for both foreign and domestic distribution could not be higher.”
Other confirmed cast members include David Portorreal (Prisoner 614) and child actor Alexander James (Mansion of Blood), the youngest cast member at six years old.
Filming for The Social Contract begins mid-August at various Hollywood hot spot locations including interior shots at The Pink Motel in Sun Valley, famed for Hollywood heavy-hitting movies Drive and The Whole Ten Yards. The Social Contract is expected to world premiere at FUNGLOBE in the Dominican Republic ahead of its international film festival circuit and release in 2014.
