Freeze Frame the working title based on a true story, “tells how Ben’s character went into a bar and held it up with an unloaded gun. His objective was not to get money, but to get killed.
“After Ben’s character is released from prison, he finds there’s nowhere he can go where people don’t know him, and know what he did … including his son from a broken marriage, who won’t speak to him.”
Directed by Galit McCord, Freeze Frame will go to film in 2009.
A preview of the movie featuring Browder is currently available on YouTube. GateWorld has learned exclusively that Browder is currently the only actor cast. The producers are aiming for a theatrical release, but the number of hits to the YouTube video will play a big part in deciding the film’s fate.
