Vine swings in, takes 'Charge'
Hollywood Reporter 12/20/04
Amanda Brooks and Patricia Rae will star in "Taking Charge," a feature that is intended as the first of a slate of projects from newly formed Vine Entertainment. Vine founder and CEO Gino Cabanas plans to use private capital to produce a series of low-budget features in various genres. "The Vine intends to challenge many of Hollywood's preconceived notions about indie outfits," Cabanas said. "The strength of our financing places us in a strong position to nurture the careers of talented writers, producers and directors as well as shepherd their projects from start to finish." "Charge" is scheduled to shoot next month in Arizona under the direction of Dick Fisher, who was the cinematographer, editor and one of the producers of "The Brothers McMullen." The drama is described as a cautionary tale of a spoiled girl who takes matters into her own hands after she is cut off by her billionaire father. Brooks plays the girl, while Rae plays a paramedic. Brooks, repped by Paradigm, is filming the Walt Disney Co.'s Jodie Foster starrer "Flightplan." Rae is repped by Brady, Brennan and Rich.

"I was a consultant for the paramedic scenes, but they didn't listen to anything I told them," Alan Williams 1/09

"I golfed with MM last Sunday, 2/26, at the Ocean Club on Paradise Island, Nassau, The Bahamas. I met him on the first tee as he was with the director Gino of his new movie. They were filming on a boat and he invited me there the next day. He was a real nice guy, a true gentleman and not a bad golfer either." - Jerome

Synopsis - Official

The entire story takes place within a 12 hour time frame. A billionaire, James Burton, allows his 21 year old girlfriend to convince him to "cut off" his 20 year old daughter, Patricia. In an act of hot headed rebellion Patricia convinces Pauly, her perpetually stoned boyfriend to join her on a robbery of a check cashing store. Everything goes awry, Pauly gets wounded and Patricia engineers their escape by hijacking an ambulance. The ambulance was en route to the hospital to deliver a severely wounded gangster, Joker with wise-ass cops in pursuit. The atmosphere inside the ambulance and in particular Patricia's relationship with Pauly becomes tenser and tenser
