Will play father and son…
The always awesome Christopher Walken and Lenny Kravitz (‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’) are to co-star in writer-director Dan Algrant’s indie drama ‘Little Rootie Tootie.’
Set to begin filming early next year in New York City, the film will see Walken playing “a veteran jazz pianist who is mourning the death of his wife. His son (Kravitz), returns home with his own wife, disrupting the couple’s careers as musicians in Europe to deal with the brilliant Sonny as his behaviour becomes manic and destructive. The trio tries to present the illusion of a functioning family, as the eccentricities inherent in being working musicians leads them tumbling toward a tragic but impactful conclusion.”
Algrant, Stan Erdreich of River Bend Pictures, A to Z’s Fred Zollo, and Dalifey Ltd.’s Paul Condoleon are producing, with Bonnie Timmermann and Steven Ray executive producing. Award-winning jazz trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard is on board to provide the music.
