INDEPENDENT FILM “PORTLAND” MOURNS LOSS OF DAVID CARRADINE
Actor David Carradine was set to co-star in the feature film entitled PORTLAND shooting in Los Angeles, CA and Portland, OR this summer.
Los Angeles, CA, June 4, 2009 – The cast, crew, and producing team behind the feature film Portland are shocked and saddened to learn of the tragic passing of co-star David Carradine on the eve of principal photography.
Portland was set to be David’s next film and was his only project currently in pre-production. Helmed by Matthew Mishory, the picture stars Erin Daniels, Jonathan Caouette, Steven Martini, Renee Victor, and Alex Schemmer. Carradine was set to play a pivotal role in the film and this has been a great loss for the entire PORTLAND family. “An actor of David Carradine’s stature behind our film meant the world to us,” said executive producers Adrian Salpeter and Elizabeth Levine of Random Bench Productions. “Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time”.
The team is committed to this film and are considering other actors to replace the irreplaceable David Carradine. The producers and all involved are moving forward with the production in his memory.
Mr. Carradine was truly a living legend of stage and screen, having worked with Martin Scorsese, Hal Ashby, Ingmar Bergman, and Quentin Tarantino, among many others, in a career that spanned nearly five decades.
