|Armand Assante plays the father of Bradenton resident Danielle White in 'Blind Pass.'|
Back in December, I spent a day on the set of the feature film "Blind Pass" with stars Armand Assante and Danielle White in Lakewood Ranch.
The drama/thriller also features famed character actor Ed Lauter as well as Chris McKenna ("90210"), Mike McGlone (“The Brothers McMullen,” “She’s the One”), Tampa-based Mary Rachel Dudley (“Dear John,” “Free Ride”) and up-and-coming child star Sydney Rouviere, a South Florida native whose appearances include “The Glades” TV series.
It’s the second independent, feature-length film by Sarasota-based Midnight Pass Productions and writer/producer/director Steve Tatone.
Emmy Award-winner Assante, who met with Bradenton Mayor Wayne Poston on Monday, plays a rich, powerful former athlete battling multiple sclerosis and the father of the leading lady, 20-year-old Bradenton resident White, who first gained fame by appearing on the reality TV series "American Juniors."
She starred in Tatone's first feature, "Beautiful Noise," which enjoyed an unprecedented six, sold-out screenings at the 2011 Sarasota Film Festival.
