The sun and surf of California has long provided a cinematic backdrop to drugs, sex and hedonistic excess; behind the beautiful coastline of the Golden State often lies darker secrets. It's in that spirit that "California Scheming" unfolds, and today we have the exclusive red band trailer for the upcoming film.
The directorial debut of writer/director Marco Weber (producer behind "Igby Goes Down," "Brooklyn's Finest" and "The Informers" among others), the film is led by 2011 Miss Golden Globe Gia Mantegna who plays Chloe, a beautiful new girl who has just arrived in Malibu. Soon, best friends Nick and Jason are drawn into her orbit, as well as Hillary, another arrival from Boston looking for friends and a place to fit in. But Chloe is more than just a beautiful face, and introducing everyone to drugs, crime and more, they all go down a dangerous path.
Co-starring Chad Lowe, Devon Werkheiser, Spencer Daniels, Rachel Seiferth and Claudia Christian, Double Dutch International will be launching sales for the film at AFM. Gravitas Ventures will open the film in theaters across the country and on VOD January 31, 2014.
