The project is described by Widemire as, “a short film that takes the adage ‘never judge a book by its cover’ one step further to -- never judge a life lived by what remains”. Angela Paton (Dirty Harry, Flatliners, Groundhog Day, American Wedding, Red Eye) and Marco St. John (State of Grace, Runaway Jury, Monster, The Punisher, Shadow People) are attached in the lead roles of “Emilie” and “Philipe Baptiste”.
Weingrod, in his directorial debut, makes a promise to project contributors and followers in a video clip promoting the project, “I’m known for being involved in comedies but Last Wishes is not a comedy, however, I can guarantee you it will bring a smile to your face”. His writing credits include: Trading Places, Twins, Brewster’s Millions, Kindergarten Cop and Space Jam.
State of Mind Films is the Weingrod/Widemire production banner. The duo produced the 2007 feature, The Final Season. Weingrod previously produced the Michael Douglas’ drama, Falling Down (1993).
