Bicephaly Pictures, in association with Lunacy Productions and Relic Pictures, has announced the start of production on The Short History of the Long Road, the sophomore feature from Simon-Kennedy (Days of Gray). The road trip drama stars international recording artist and actress Carpenter as Nola, a young van-dweller forced to take the wheel for the first time when tragedy strikes. Rounding out the cast are Steven Ogg (The Walking Dead), Jashaun St. John (Songs My Brothers Taught Me), Rusty Schwimmer (The Perfect Storm), Danny Trejo (Machete) and Maggie Siff (Billions).
Production begins this month and is expected to last several weeks on location in New Mexico.
The film will be shot by Simon-Kennedy’s long-time collaborator Cailin Yatsko. Producers on the project include: Darren Dean (The Florida Project); Kishori Rajan (American Fable, HBO’s upcoming Random Acts of Flyness); and Eddie Rubin (Puzzle, Love and Honor), along with Simon-Kennedy and Yatsko. Eric Schultz, Stu Pollard, Harris McCabe and Mike Han are executive producing while a co-producer credit is going to Bettina Kadoorie. Paradigm is handling sales on the film.
We’re about to hit the road in New Mexico with a phenomenal cast and crew! It’s been a journey already, but we’re so happy to be bringing our next Bicephaly Pictures film to life. 🚐#shorthistorylongroad #vanlife https://t.co/DUMytJ0hhh
