Such Good People– a gay take on an old school Hollywood screwball comedy, completed the films principal photography on June 17th, 2013. “The thing that’s so exciting to all of us about this project is that the ‘gay’ aspect of the movie is entirely incidental to the plot,” says Such Good People director, Stuart Wade. “The movie just happens to be about a gay couple off on an adventure together. And frankly, I believe this is the future of gay cinema, where gay characters are not only — or totally — defined by their sexuality.” Screenwriter, David Michael Barrett adds, “They are just a couple who want what everyone wants: Home, family, and a fabulous house in Silverlake. And they are just as smart — or otherwise — as everyone else in the movie.”
The comedy, about a gay couple (Michael Urie & Randy Harrison) who find a million dollars while housesitting, is the latest project from acclaimed indie director Stewart Wade (“Coffee Date” & “Tru Loved”) and screenwriter David Michael Barrett (“Bad Actress”). Also on board are veteran indie producer David Avallone, along with executive producers are Geoffrey Soffer and Jen Namoff.
In addition to Michael Urie (“Ugly Betty”) and Randy Harrison (“Queer as Folk”), the movie boasts an impressive list of comedy and gay icons: Carrie Wiita (“Reno 911”), comedian Alec Mapa, Ana Ortiz (“Ugly Betty”), Lance Bass (*NSYNC), legendary character actor Rick Overton, Tom Lenk (Cabin in the Woods”), Drew Droege (Chloë Sevigny videos), Mitch Silpa (“Bridesmaids”), and James Urbaniak (“Henry Fool”). Scott Wolf (“Part of Five”) and Broadway’s Kate Reinders (“Wicked”), also appear, playing celebrity philanthropists, who raise money for the orphans of Bhutan.
Such Good People has already achieved a significant buzz, with almost 30,000 followers across multiple social media platforms, as filmmakers got their initial funding on Kickstarter.com.
