Actress Marina Sirtis, best known for her role as Counselor Deanna Troi on the television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and the upcoming CBS All Access series “Star Trek: Picard,” will headline the feature film, “A Thousand Little Cuts.”
Joining Sirtis in the edgy drama are Rebecca Liddiard (“Houdini & Doyle,” “Alias Grace”), Andrew Creer (“Lethal Weapon,” Netflix’s “You”), Colin Ferguson (“Eureka,” “The Vampire Diaries”), Randy Wayne (“The Dukes of Hazzard,” “True Blood”) and Nazanin Nour, most recently seen in the CBS series, “Madam Secretary.”
Written and directed by Australian-born TV scribe, Joshua Brandon, “A Thousand Little Cuts” concerns a psychiatrist (Sirtis) who tries to help a young woman (Liddiard) piece together the details of a violent attack, unaware of the pivotal events that led up to the deadly affair.
“It’s an honor to have secured such an incredibly talented cast and crew for this project,” said Brandon. “I’m also very excited to be making my first feature in such a welcoming town as Guthrie, Oklahoma.”
The film will be produced by Peter Foldy and Ronnie Wiskup for Spitfire Films in Association with Filmstreet Productions and RcR Cinema. Duke Fleischer will Executive Produce. Casting for “A Thousand Little Cuts” was facilitated by CSA member Ricki Maslar, her 12th feature in Oklahoma since 2015.
Principal photography begins on November 20, 2019, in Guthrie, Oklahoma, with assistance from the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program. The film is expected to be completed by the spring of 2020 with a theatrical run planned for later that year.
