The Miles Doleac-directed musical-comedy-thriller OPEN has obtained a SAG-AFTRA interim agreement to promote its upcoming release in theaters and on streaming platforms including Amazon Prime Video.
The film’s world premiere event took place at TCL Chinese 6 at Ovation Hollywood (formerly Hollywood & Highland) on 1st November 2023, followed by a limited theatrical on 3rd November 2023 and wide streaming release 7th November 2023. OPEN tells the story of Kristina (Lindsay Anne Williams), a woman in a troubled marriage, who falls for a former TV star and teen heartthrob (Jeremy London), whose previously promising career has collapsed. All the while, Kristina experiences music video-like hallucinations wherein she fronts an 80’s new wave band. The script, which brings vibes that scream MARRIAGE STORY meets SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD, was penned by Doleac and Williams. For the film’s 10 original songs, Doleac and Williams partnered with longtime collaborator and composer, Clifton Hyde, and Oliver Hofer to create a musical landscape that’s sure to delight fans of synth-driven 80’s post-punk.
Says star Jeremy London, who does all his own singing in the film, “This film is like our own ROCKY HORROR in a way. It’s possibly my favorite role in 33 years in this business. I can’t even describe how fun and outrageous and brilliant these songs are.”
Director Doleac adds, “We left it all on the field with this one; I think audiences will sense that in the telling.”
The OPEN soundtrack album, which contains both songs and score elements hits streamers and limited-edition vinyl on 13th October 2023. OPEN stars Lindsay Anne Williams, Jeremy London, Miles Doleac, Elena Sanchez, and William Forsythe. It is being distributed by Virgil Films.
