Principal Photography has Been Completed on Uplifting Drama, Directed by Kim Bass
LOS ANGELES, CA — (Marketwired) — 04/15/15 — Tom Skerritt (Top Gun, Alien, MASH) has completed filming on Bass Entertainment Pictures’ upcoming feature, DAY OF DAYS.
Skerritt stars opposite the only other cast member, relative newcomer, Peruvian actress, Claudia Zevallos (A Better Place). The film was primarily shot on a sound stage utilizing a single set. This purposely-austere production is unlike any film Skerritt has worked on before and he is extremely excited to be a part of the inspirational and thought-provoking project.
Inspired by a true story, DAY OF DAYS explores the emotion-filled, day-long, late-in-life self-reflection of Walter Raymond Leland (Skerritt), a long-retired city bus driver and WWII veteran who lives in self-imposed isolation in his Los Angeles home. After having a premonition of death, he awakens with certainty that this will be the day he dies. The film follows that one day, after his home-aide worker (Zevallos) challenges his belief. The film examines themes of life, death, faith and self-forgiveness.
This was an extraordinarily emotional and demanding role for Skerritt, and is one that he is deeply passionate about. “It’s all about the material,” said Skerritt.
DAY OF DAYS was directed by Kim Bass (Junkyard Dog, Kill Speed), written by Kim Bass (In Living Color, Sister, Sister, A Thin Line Between Love & Hate) and Kyle Bass (Cry For Peace: Voices From The Congo), and produced by Deanna Shapiro, whose last film, A Better Place, won the Best Independent Film Award at the 2015 Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival. James Parrinello, of Aurum Film Group, and Dennis Ho, of Digital Jungle Pictures, are executive producers on the film project.
