Leon Addison, Whoopi Goldberg, Jeffrey Wright. and Alec Baldwin are among 14 cast in Will Parker’s mystery film Atrabilious. Mark Boone Junior, Lewis Black, Evan Jonigkeit, Joel de la Fuente, David Pittu, Andy Karl, Ward Horton, Hunter Parrish, Brooks Ashmanskas, and Dan Finnerty also star in the project.
Atrabilious follows Steven Joyner (Brown) as he tries to solve the mystery behind his son’s sudden, tragic and potentially fabricated death. Atrabilious is a bar where the grief-stricken go to heal and move on with their lives, but what does it have to do with the disappearance of Steven’s son?
18-year-old Will Parker, the son of Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup, wrote and directed Atrabilious. His sister, Ash Parker, wrote and recorded the original song, Fear, for the film.
“Atrabilious is the darkly comedic and magical characterization of grief,” Parker said. “It’s a story I’ve wanted to tell for a while, and I’m so glad I get to do so with this wonderful cast and crew.”
The pic is now wrapping principal photography. Daniel Harlow of Bunker 15 Films is executive producer and Sabina Friedman-Seitz is co-producer.
Atrabilious is Parker’s second, micro-budget project. His first was Forty Winks.
