New Movie!

Thanks to Bad Fred for bringing this to my attention; Amy has a new movie listed on her IMDB resume titled 21 and a Wake-Up and playing the character of Caitlin Murphy. It is currently filming and while there is no official confirmation that Amy has been cast, I was able to find a synopsis of what the film is about — and it sounds very interesting!

Film to explore one week of war

Chris T. McIntyre, an American independent film director and producer, is shooting the Rex Hotel in the centre of HCM City for a new movie entitled 21 and a Wake-up..

The film is the first American film about the Second Indochina War to be shot on the locations where the real events took place.

It’s budget is US$3 million.

21 and a Wake-up follows the lives of a dozen soldiers, doctors, nurses and journalists through a single week in 1971 as America’s commitment to the Indochina War waned and resources were held back.

At one point, the movie re-enacts the notorious Sai Gon press briefings held at the Rex, dubbed the Five O’clock Follies on account of the questionable spin on information given to the international press.

The film claims no sides in its politics, and only seeks to portray a unique historical moment in Vietnamese and American history.

McIntyre expects a December 2008 release for the film stateside and a spring release in Viet Nam.
