Is “86 Melrose Avenue” the name of a new soap, or the altered name of a soap remake? It’s neither…it’s the address at the center of a new action thriller coming from Gravitas Ventures next month.
The building on 86 Melrose Avenue doesn’t seem on the surface like a place where any action would occur. It’s an uppity art gallery that’s holding a gala soiree one evening. A diverse group of people have gathered to stare at dry paint and sip wine, but none of them know each other. That will change when a PTSD-addled Marine barges into the lobby, wields a large weapon and holds them all hostage! Trapped together in the gallery and not sure if they’ll live through the night, the group learns a lot about each other and that they’re not so different as they thought. (So it’s actually kinda like The Breakfast Club with guns pointed at people’s faces.)
86 Melrose Avenue stars Dada Elza (“Mystery Incorporated”), Jim O’Heir (“Parks and Recreation”) (yes, Jerry is in this, maybe he finally saves the day), Anastasia Antonia, Gregory Zarian, Terri Ivens, Langstone Fishburne, Michael Polak, Andy Evans, Richard Sabine, Helen Kennedy, and Gary Sturm. The movie was written and directed by Lili Matta, and will be out on demand April 20.
