We are closing 2016 with a dynamic new film!

Paul Rudd stars in the World War II film “The Catcher Was a Spy,” directed by Ben Lewin and financed and produced by PalmStar Media. Locally produced by Czech Anglo Productions.

Shooting begins mid February for 6 weeks.

You can expect some wonderful names to join the project.
