With his latest project Supercell, Alec Baldwin is going up against Mother Nature.
The film, whose international sale is being handled by Highland Film Group at the virtual Cannes market, follows William (Daniel Diemer), a good-hearted teenager wanting to follow in his father’s footsteps, the legendary storm chaser Bill Brody killed by a massive super tornado. His father’s legacy has now been turned into a storm-chasing tourist business, run by the greedy and reckless Zane Rogers, played by Baldwin. After William runs away from home, he teams up with his dad’s old partner Roy (Skeet Ulrich) and enters into the world of storm chasing, as Zane leads the group deep into the eye of the most dangerous supercell ever seen. Herbert James Winterstern directed Supercell from a script he wrote with Anna Elizabeth James, and marks the first film greenlit under a first look deal between Highland Film Group and newly-launched Short Porch Pictures.
