Things Never Said

Sifting through the S&A archives, as I caught up on projects we've written about in the past but haven't updated you on in a long while...

Here's a first trailer for writer/director/executive producer Charles Murray's feature debut, Things Never Said, which stars Shanola Hampton (Shameless), Omari HardwickElimu Nelson (The Shield), Tamala JonesDorian Missick and Michael Beach.

This is a project we first alerted you to last summer, but haven't reported on since then; I checked in on the film's Facebook page, and saw that a trailer has actually been online since last fall. Obviously we missed it; BUT, this is why I continuously emphasize the importance of you folks keeping us informed of your project's progress, because we can't catch every single thing.

Described as a drama/romance, the micro-budgeted film "explores a young woman’s quest for self worth and purpose as she struggles to find the meaning behind her choices and her voice through spoken-word poetry."

Director Murray's credits include mostly TV, writing for shows like CastleCriminal Minds and Third Watch, all acclaimed series; so, naturally, his abilities as a writer on those programs should extend to his feature film, and should put Murray and his debut on our list of filmmakers and films to watch in the coming year.

You may also remember that he recently sold a female-led police procedural series to CBS (along with Queen Latifah).

Things Never Said is produced by Omar Albertto and Brian Lewis.

I like the look and feel of what I see in the trailer below, and I'm looking forward to eventually checking this out when the time comes!

But you can follow the film's progress via its Facebook fan page at facebook.com/thingsneversaid, where you'll find a much longer synopsis that reveals much more; or Twitter at twitter.com/TNSMovie.
