An adaptation based on New York Times Best Selling author, Alessandra Torre’s book “Hollywood Dirt” will be produced in part in Madison.
According to the Augusta Film Office, pre-production is in full swing, and Principal Photography will start on March 15 for 8 days before the production moves to Madison, Georgia on March 24.
The film is the first of many for veteran Producer/Director/Writer team Jina Panebianco, Tosca Musk and Joany Kane. Hollywood Dirt, will be the first to premiere in the line-up of their slate launching in September 2017 on the newly founded digital platform Passionflix.
“We had this vision of fulfilling a need for the millions of women across the world (ourselves included) to see their favorite romance novels turned into movies and series. Our mandate is simple: love, passion, romance and happy endings. There is not enough of that in filmmaking today” says Panebianco.
The underlying message of Passionflix is to empower women through emotional strength. Hollywood Dirt is pulling in many L.A. film veterans to the area who will be rounded out by more than 60% local crew for the duration of the shoot. The film stars Emma Rigby (Once Upon A Time in Wonderland) and Johann Urb (Resident Evil), alongside Marco Dapper (Young and The Restless) and Mindy Cohn (Facts of Life) to name but a few, which help bring this array of colorful characters to life.
