American Sunset shot in Moncton, Fredericton, Parlee Beach

american-sunset-1

A second major movie to be filmed in Moncton in as many years is wrapping up production downtown.

The film, American Sunset, is scheduled for release this summer. The popular teen movie Growing Op, released last year, was also filmed in Moncton.

The film is produced by Global Universal Inc. out of Hollywood, but most of the 40-person cast and crew is from New Brunswick.

“It’s been really great for me,” said Nicky Destres, production manager and Moncton native. “It’s been giving me the opportunity to prove myself in the New Brunswick market.”

This is Destres’ first time as a production manager for a feature film.

“New Brunswick film is underrated, but I’m hoping this film will change things,” Destres said.

The film was originally set for the … READ MORE

Local actress’s talent ‘knocked our socks off’

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

Corey Haim may be hoping for a comeback with his latest movie, one of his first top billings after years of struggling with addiction.

But American Sunset may be a bigger boost to a local rising star.

Angela Cullins, the thriller’s leading lady, hails from Hartland. She said the film gave her a rare opportunity.

“I was thrilled when I read (the script) and found out who I was working with, because not much is offered to Canadian talent in regard to female leads,” Cullins said.

“We get the leftovers because people just don’t give new talent a chance. There’s not an opportunity to excel and grow here without projects like this coming to our area.”

Jackie Giroux, American Sunset’s writer and producer, said she wanted to come back to Fredericton after shooting her last film, Blue Seduction, here in October. She said she wanted to take advantage of the scenery, crew members and extras the area has to offer.

Giroux said she especially wanted another chance to work with Cullins, who auditioned for a role opposite Billy Zane in Blue Seduction, but was passed over because the director felt she was too pretty for the part.

“The first time she walked in, I thought she was Charlize Theron. I’d never seen … READ MORE

Film | Producer says tax rules need to change if N.B. wants to star in more films

Corey Haim may be the star of American Sunset, but he said New Brunswick had the biggest role to play in making the film one of his best

“The location has made it such a better movie,” said the star of such hits as The Lost Boys during a news conference at the Delta Fredericton Hotel on Friday. “You can actually see the river. There’s no yellow clouds of smog (here). It all feels so real.”

“I think New Brunswick is the first character in the film,” said co-star Frank Molina, who’s been shooting scenes with Haim and the rest of the cast at Kings Landing Historical Settlement, El Burrito Loco and other Fredericton hot spots this week.

“The whole area, to me, worked (for) the trials and tribulations of our (characters’) demons. In scenes, I’m looking around and I forget that I’m working, because I’m just so overwhelmed by the beauty. It wouldn’t have worked anywhere else.”

But Jackie Giroux, the film’s writer and producer, said the … READ MORE

‘Lost Boy’ in capital

Corey Haim | Actor joins Frank Molina in new movie

One of the biggest movie stars from the 1980s is filming a motion picture in the capital region this week.

Corey Haim, who starred in Hollywood blockbusters such as Licence To Drive, The Lost Boys, and Stephen King’s Silver Bullet, filmed a scene at the popular Mexican eatery El Burrito Loco several days ago and will visit several other locations as work continues on the film.

The Toronto-born actor fell out of the spotlight in the 1990s and struggled briefly with addiction and financial troubles.

But Haim returned to the industry again in recent years by appearing in a reality television show The Two Coreys alongside good friend and fellow teen heartthrob Corey Feldman.

He also has a role in the Hollywood action movie Crank: High Voltage.

Global Universal Pictures, Inc. is making the film, which is tentatively titled American Sunset, with Haim, co-star Frank Molina and director Michael Masucci.

The film is being … READ MORE
