Lisa Vidal (The Beauty And The Baker), Cam Gigandet (Burlesque), Jaina Lee Ortiz (Station 19), Carlos Miranda (Vida) as well as newcomer Sasha Merci (De Lo Mio) are set to star in the film.
The film is currently in pre-production and will begin filming in Los Angeles soon. Shelter will tell the story of “…the head of a secret organization who assembles a crew to steal back artwork from a Neo-Nazi billionaire oligarch who plundered it during World War II”, as according to Deadline.
The film is being produced by Jolene Rodriguez (7th & Union) of Broken English productions and financed by Ruben Islas’ Grandave Capital. Michael Corcoran wrote the original script for Shelter, and Frank Mayor of Cinevision Global will serve as executive producer.
Proder Jolene Rodriguez stated, “I’m thrilled to work with such a talented group. I’ve followed many of their careers and to make a movie with them is such a privilege. Shelter is a great example of taking any script and making it inclusive. It takes effort but it’s possible and it matters”.
Vidal is known for her work on ABC’s The Baker And The Beauty, the BET TV series Being Mary Jane, as well as Grey’s Anatomy. Gigandet is known for his roles in Twilight and The O.C. and most recently starred in the Amazon Original movie Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse, as well as in Netflix Original movie Dangerous Lies.
