The highly anticipated contemporary neo-noir thriller, ‘Override’, starring Joe Cole and Teagan Croft, has recently wrapped up filming. Directed by Natasha Merkulova and Alexey Chupov, this marks the English-language debut for the Russian filmmaking duo.

‘Override’ follows the story of Ron Camp, a 31-year-old taxi driver in L.A., and Becca, his 16-year-old passenger, as they are thrust into a modern-day nightmare. Unaware of Ron’s dark past as a spree killer, Becca finds herself caught up in a series of terrifying events. As the night unfolds, they must confront the chilling question of how many lives will be lost before the ordeal is over.

Apart from Joe Cole and Teagan Croft, the film features a talented ensemble including Zolee Griggs, Jeremias Amoore, Jaime Ray Newman, and Chris Payne Gilbert. The cinematography is handled by award-winning Estonian filmmaker Mart Taniel. The project is produced by Valeriy Fedorovich and Evgeny Nikishov for Melting Pot Production.

‘Override’ was shot in Los Angeles in March and is currently in post-production. Paris-based sales and production company, Charades, has taken on international sales for the film. In addition, AC Independent and WME Independent will handle North American rights. The film is set to be showcased to buyers at the Cannes Film Festival.

The producers, Fedorovich and Nikishov, are known for their work on successful projects such as ‘Anna K’ and ‘To The Lake’. They made the decision to relocate to L.A. amidst the Russia-Ukraine war and established Melting Pot Production. The collaboration with directors Merkulova and Chupov brings a fresh perspective to the classic neo-noir genre.

Charades co-founder Yohann Comte expressed excitement about the directors’ unique take on the L.A. thriller genre in their English-language debut. AC Independent Head Shumaker commended the intensity and vision of the directing duo based on their previous work showcased at the Venice Film Festival.

‘Override’ promises to be a gripping and intense neo-noir thriller with a talented cast and crew at the helm. As the film heads into post-production, anticipation is high for its release and reception by audiences worldwide.
