Flatbush Luck is starring a talented group of up-and coming actors including Michael Nathanson (The Wolf of Wall Street, The Knicks), Alex McKenna (90201, The Following), Tanner Novlan (Rizzoli & Isles), Briana Marin (The Leftovers, The Mysteries of Laura), Shauna Miles (The Good Wife), Miles Mussenden (Bloodline) and newcomers Robby Stahl, Jenna Perez, and Juahn Cabrera.
It is the eight feature film by the multi-award winning director. It is also the second feature Andreas is producing and directing this year, as he just shot his West Hollywood Murder Mystery Kiss Me, Kill Me, starring Gale Harold (Queer As Folk), Van Hansis (As the World Turns) and Briana Brown (Devious Maids) a few months ago.
Andreas is very exited about going into production of the film: "I’m beyond thrilled to have been offered the opportunity by Executive Producer James Balletto to bring this story to life. I can’t wait to get started working with the amazing cast and crew that we have assembled." Balletto adds: "I have admired Casper’s work as a filmmaker for many years, both for his romantic comedies and his dramas. I am confident that he is the perfect director to strike just the right balance between the comedy, drama, and romance of Flatbush Luck."
The contemporary film will be shot almost entirely in Brooklyn, New York, utilizing many authentic backdrops in the Flatbush area, including the historic Erasmus Hall High School. Balletto and Andreas collaborated on the screenplay based on a story by Balletto and Jed Seidel. The film is to be shot by cinematographer Rainer Lipski.
Flatbush Luck centers on former Wall Street hotshot Jimmy (Novlan) and his buttoned-up cousin Max (Stahl) who work as telephone repairmen in their native Brooklyn neighborhood. Jimmy wants nothing more than to return to his fast-paced high life, while Max is starting to have second thoughts about his upcoming, very expensive wedding to Donna (Perez) – especially after finding himself attracted to customer Andres (Cabrera). When Jimmy overhears illegal insider trading during a routine house call, he convinces Max that they should tap the phone line to cash in on the scheme.
