The all-star ensemble cast of the sci fi thriller, Abeyance, features Scout Taylor-Compton [The Runaways (2010), Rob Zombie’s Halloween (2007) and Halloween 2 (2009)], Richard Tyson [Kindergarten Cop (1990), Black Hawk Down (2001), Something About Mary (1998)], Billy Wirth [The Lost Boys (1987), Boys on the Side (1995), Body Snatchers (1993)], Mel Novak [Bruce Lee’s Game of Death (1978), An Eye for An Eye (1981) opposite Chuck Norris and Steve McQueen: American Icon (2017) with Mel Gibson] and Yan Birch [The People Under the Stairs (1991), Death House (2018), Bless the Child (2000)].
Martial Arts Champion and multi-award winning writer, director and actor, Harley Wallen, director of Bennett’s Song (2018) which stars Tara Reid, and Into a Dark Mind (2018) starring Tom Sizemore, not only writes and directs Abeyance, but he also stars in the film.
In this story, we follow Corey (Damien Chinappi), a troubled and suicidal military veteran who stumbles across a kidnapping with great scientific implications. He and his unlikely “partner in crime,” a prostitute named Stephanie (Kaiti Wallen), decided to try to help the young girl, Miranda (Angelina Danielle Cama), who got away. They enter a world far more complex, cutthroat and dangerous than they could ever imagine.
Vida Ghaffari [The Mindy Project (2012), Nation’s Fire (2018)], Shane Hagedorn [Wild Faith (2018)] and Calhoun Koenig [Moving Parts (2017)] also star. Production will begin in late June through early August in Pontiac, Michigan.
Harley Wallen of Painted Creek Productions and his production partners, Nancy Oeswein, Kaiti Wallen, Annette Cama and Nick Sarelli, are excited to show their own take on the morality issues as science allows us to “Play God” and the implications of the decisions and the temptations we face when we do.
