The film, co-written by Tze, Osgood Perkins and Nick Simon, is about a woman and her daughter who are taken hostage by a nearly blind career criminal to be his eyes as he attempts to retrieve his cash package from a crooked cop.
I'm a huge fan of Tze's work, and the story sounds really cool. And frankly, I'd watch Bryan Cranston in pretty much anything:
Elevated into critical acclaim with the modest yet affecting short "Windowbreaker," which in turn led to his 2009 Sundance feature "Children of Invention," writer/director Tze Chun's career has grown more promising with every new development. The filmmaker's next effort looks to be his most accomplished yet in terms of genre and the caliber of talent involved.Big props to our friend Mynette Louie for her part in setting this up with her super producer powers.

Syncopated Films are set to release Chun's take on the crime drama with "Eye of Winter," starring Bryan Cranston, Alice Eve ("Star Trek Into Darkness") and Logan Marshall-Green ("Prometheus"). Eve plays a struggling motel owner who, along with her daughter, is taken hostage by a nearly blind career criminal (Cranston) who uses her as his eyes as he attempts to retrieve his cash package from a crooked cop (Marshall-Green). Penned by Chen, who also co-wrote the script with Osgood Perkins and Nick Simon, the film will also star Ursula Parker ("Louie") and Leo Fitzpatrick ("The Wire").
