BANG BANG BABY
When you live too much in your fantasies, reality begins to look like a nightmare…
BANG BANG BABY, developed by Jeffrey St. Jules in the Cannes Film Festival’s Cinéfondation, is an otherworldly musical about Stepphy (Jane Levy), who is trapped in the sleepy 1960′s town of Lonely Arms taking care of her alcoholic father (Peter Stormare). Stepphy dreams of escaping to a better life on the stage and screen, and when rock star Bobby Shore’s (Justin Chatwin) car breaks down in Lonely Arms, it seems her impossible dream might actually be coming true. But when Fabian (David Reale), the town creep, tells Stepphy that the local chemical factory is leaking dangerous purple fumes that can cause human mutations, Stepphy becomes obsessed with hiding these dark secrets from Bobby until they can escape together and make all of her fantasies a reality.
This unique and stylized film stars Jane Levy (EVIL DEAD, SUBURGATORY) in a defining turn as Stepphy, a small town girl who’s caught between her big dreams of stardom and her controlling father, portrayed by Peter Stormare (FARGO, 22 JUMP STREET). Justin Chatwin (SHAMELESS, WAR OF THE WORLDS) plays dreamy rock star Bobby Shore who promises to whisk Stepphy away.
The film is Produced by Daniel Bekerman (THE HUSBAND, YOU ARE HERE), Jonathan Bronfman (RACE,EXTRATERRESTRIAL), and Don Allan of Revolver Films. The Executive Produces are Christina Piovesan (LIFE, THE WHISTLEBLOWER, AMRIKA), Lon Molnar, Mark Gingras, and Ethan Lazar. It is a Scythia Films/JoBro Production with the participation of Telefilm Canada and The Harold Greenberg Fund.
