The bilingual feature is the first production by Gor Kirakosian, Valerie McCaffrey and Maral Djerejian’s LA-based Red Tie Films and the partners claim it is the first film fully financed by Armenian private investors to shoot in the US.
Jamie Kennedy [pictured] and Angela Sarafyan star in the romantic comedy, directed by Kirakosian and produced by Djerejian and McCaffrey.
Kennedy plays the son of a US Senator who goes missing on holiday in Turkey and encounters a beautiful young woman. The producers will switch the shoot from San Diego to Armenia this summer for a further seven weeks.
Kennedy stars in the Scream franchise and Malibu’s Most Wanted, among others. Sarafyan will next be seen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.
