Filmmaker Rossi has shared exclusive images of his latest film with us.


Writer/director Michael Matteo Rossi (Misogynist; Sable) has just completed shooting on his latest film, Chase, a thriller in which a woman attempts to remove her boyfriend from the manipulative influence of his mentor.

The synopsis reads:

Chase is a cold calculated hitman whose best friend and mentor Miles, looks at him like a golden racehorse. Things start to strain between the two once Chase's girlfriend Blair begins to try to form a wedge and have Chase distance himself from Miles, who she sees just as a user. Miles, being extremely cold himself, concocts a plan to keep Chase in line, but this results in absolute chaos for all the parties.

The film stars Damien Puckler, Aries Spears, Jessica Morris, Skye Townsend and Devanny Pinn, with Richard Riehle and introducing in his first film role, fitness icon Simeon Panda.

Rossi has exclusively shared the first images from Chase with TMW, and answered some questions about the film.


How did the idea of Chase come about?

Growing up I always loved a mix of action and crime films and wanted to incorporate a smart sleek story in the same vein of The Professional and John Wick and Drive, where the audience really cares about the character but we also have some great stylistic action set pieces

Was it difficult putting this cast together?

50 percent of directing is casting so I knew I had to take careful consideration in every role and the most difficult was casting the young child actor, but we have a great one in Eli Michael Kaplan! The rest have been brilliant as well.

So far, what has been the best part and most difficult part of the production?

The best part is the overall team atmosphere and positivity, and I love working with all my actors on set. The most stressful, just like with all indie productions, is the last minute things that happen that make it a little stressful on us but it's been going great so far!
