There are deep dark secrets buried in the dirt of the Civil War battlefields. And, they should remain buried.
In Union Bridge, the gothic thriller follows Will Shipe, a scion of a powerful family living near the Maxon Dixon line, as he moves back home after years in the city. His old friend, Nick, who still lives in town, is feverishly digging in the land because of a vision he can’t escape. What is buried in this small town, and the events around it has repercussions that affect many people—most of all, Will Shipe, and the past and future of his legacy.
Union Bridge stars Scott Friend (To The Moon, Fourteen), Emma Duncan (Chicago Med), Alex Breaux (When They See Us, Depraved), and Elisabeth Noone (The Wire). Brian Levin (Flock of Dudes) wrote and directed the project.
The film had its world premiere at the New Filmmakers NY Film Festival and released on all video on demand digital platforms and DVD earlier this month.
LRM Online conducted a Zoom interview this week with director Levin, along with actors Friend and Breaux, about this gothic thriller. We talked about the location, mood, indie film challenges, and the art of digging.
Director Brian Levin makes his directorial debut with Union Bridge. He produced 2016’s comedy Flock of Dudes that starred Chris D’Elia, Bryan Greenberg, Eric Andre, Skyler Astin, Jamie Chung, Hannibal Buress, and Hilary Duff.
Scott Friend has a long history with short films and independent films. He starred alongside Tallie Medel in the indie darling Fourteen. He will be seen in the upcoming films The Dark End of the Street and To the Moon. Fried plays Will Shipe, who tries to uncover the mystery in Union Bridge.
Alex Breaux has appeared in numerous known film projects and television series. Recently, he starred in cult horror director Larry Fessenden’s Depraved. He made notable appearances in television shows like Blue Bloods, The Blacklist, FBI, and the critically acclaimed series When They See Us.
