Michele Civetta puts together a great cast for his new crime thriller, The Gateway.


The Synopsis

Shea Whigham (“American Hustle), Olivia Munn (“X-Men: Apocalypse”), and Frank Grillo (“The Grey) star in this gritty, edge-of-your-seat crime-thriller. Whigham is Parker, a down-on-his-luck social worker who finds himself in over his head when he tries to protect his client from her recently paroled husband. Can Parker save the family from the violent threat of the maniacal drug dealer and his crew, desperate to reclaim their priceless stash?

This is the second full-length film for Michele Civetta. Last year he made his directorial debut with Agony, starring Asia Argento and Jonathan Caoutte. Prior to making full length films he gained experience from making short films. He used his experience from working with  numerous commercial clients like Martini & Rossi, Dunkin’, Bacardi and Coca-Cola to name a few. Music videos add to his experience working with artists like Lou Reed and Sparklehorse among others.

I spoke to the filmmaker Michele Civetta via Zoom to talk about the making of the release date of The Gateway. He could not hide his excitement for the cast that included Bruce Dern who he was already a fan of. In addition, his experience as a co-writer, directing this film in St.Louis and his reason behind it.

The Gateway is now available in select theaters, On-Demand and DVD
