Italian filmmaker Christian Filipella's feature debut, Silver Case stars Eric Roberts, Brian Keith Gamble (The Keeper), Seymore Cassel, Chris Facey, Shalim Ortiz, Stanley B. Herman among others.
The action comedy, produced by Satyricon Pictures, revolves around a sealed silver briefcase containing mysterious items. The film premiered at the International Rome Film Festival a few weeks ago, and won the Spirit of Independent Award at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival last week.
In Tinseltown, the world of scheming and dreaming reaches a particularly nasty low when a powerful producer known as the 'Senator' (Eric Roberts) hatches a plan to undermine the future success of his shady arch rival, the 'Master' in more ways than one. His plot begins with the simple delivery of a silver briefcase. But nothing is simple in Hollywood. The case goes missing, which sets off a chain of events that are categorically not part of the plan. The Senator engages the best of his team to locate the package but doesn't count on the tenacity of two thugs who now have the mystery prize in their curious possession.
The filmmakers are currently in talks for domestic distribution.
