Filmmakers have arrived in Northwest Ohio to shoot a dark comedy film.
“The Cran” is about a failed comedian who, after reconnecting with his ex, becomes complicit in an absurd revenge crusade that puts him in the crosshairs of a rural cult.
The film is written and directed by Bowling Green-native, Tyler Savino, with Chase A. Crawford as executive producer of the Bucketnaut Films and Four by Three production.
The film stars SAG award-winner Joe Chrest (“Stranger Things,” “Ant-Man”), Matthew Alan Porter (“Utopia”) and Port Clinton-native Marlee Carpenter.
“The Cran” marks Savino’s feature film directorial debut and earns Porter and Carpenter their first starring roles. Crawford is an award-winning producer best known for producing Adam Conover’s “Moondance” and the Amazon Prime series ”Wildfire.”
“The Cran” has an anticipated release of summer 2021.
