STEALING CHAPLIN is inspired by real events of the two con men who tried to dig up the acting legends grave.
Dystopian films have wrapped their latest feature shot entirely on location in Las Vegas, a blackly comic neo-noir titled STEALING CHAPLIN.
Inspired by real events, the story centres around two Las Vegas based con men who dig up and steal the corpse of comedian Charlie Chaplin in order to ransom it. With the theft gaining the world’s attention and the reward rising daily, soon every local lowlife, criminal and dirty cop wants a piece of the action.
STEALING CHAPLIN is due a late 2020 release.
The film has just wrapped a three week shoot in Las Vegas and the cast includes Al Sapienza (House of Cards, The Sopranos), Peter Woodward (The Patriot, Pennyworth), Ken Bressers (Age of the Living Dead), Simon Phillips (Once Upon a Time at Christmas, No Easy Days) and a cameo from Mr Las Vegas, Wayne Newton. Ken Bressers, Simon Phillips and Paul Tanter produce for Dystopian Films with Tanter directing from a Doug Phillips script.
