12/21/2020: Schott Productions to Shoot Film about Food and Friendship
Following on the heels of this year’s release of DUST NUGGETS, Schott Productions will soon begin development on a new narrative fiction film entitled LE BON CHEF.
“We’re really excited to bring this script to life” Tracy Schott, director says. “LE BON CHEF is a timely story of our changing culture, with a funny cast, witty dialogue, and a telling message.”
The story concerns a 50-ish female chef at a top French restaurant going bankrupt as people’s taste slowly changes to vegan, low-carb — everything French food is not. As with the previous projects LE BON CHEF will be filmed in Berks County, PA.
“We’re scouting locations and working on funding in this phase,” says producer Sue Lange. “Unlike our previous projects, we are seeking investors who will have a financial interest in LE BON CHEF.”
To secure seed money, Schott Productions will hold a crowd-funding campaign through Seed & Spark (www.seedandspark.com/fund/le-bon-chef), an online platform geared towards filmmakers. This initial funding is needed to secure a legal team and hire a casting agent to help with building the roster of 9+ actors.
The film features a diverse cast of characters who bring their kooky life perspectives into the melting pot of LE BON CHEF. Eric Roberts and Robert Picardo were both featured in DUST NUGGETS. Lange and Schott will likewise bring known talent to this project.
If all goes according to schedule Schott Productions will bring the film in by the end of 2021.
