Cameron Richardson Joins Shawn Andrews and Virginie Ledoyen Rounding Out Tempestuous “The Last Beat” Love Triangle
Bohemia Group and Writer/Director Robert Saitzyk (“Godspeed”) have found their earthy, yet fiery Valerie Eason in stunning ingénue Cameron Richardson (“Hard Breakers,” & “Harper’s Island”). Virginie Ledoyen will play Clémence, a French Countess involved in a turbulent love triangle between Jay Douglas (Shawn Andrews) and his self-professed “soul mate” Valerie Eason (Cameron Richardson). She joins an incredible cast led by Shawn Andrews (“Fix” opposite Olivia Wilde, “Dazed and Confused” and “City of Ghosts”), César nominated French actress Virginie Ledoyen, (“Tout ce qui brille”, “The Army of Crime” and of course Danny Boyle’s “The Beach”), and the also recently cast Oscar nominated Seymour Cassel (“Big Heart City” and “The Royal Tenenbaums”), Kevin Corrigan (“The Departed,” “Pineapple Express”), Courtney Halverson (“Hamill” and “Godspeed”), and Aasha Davis (fresh off the Sundance hit “Pariah” and American Gun”).
“The Last Beat” explores the life of a world weary self exiled rock star Jay Douglas searching for a more artistic existence as a poet and writer in Paris, with the hope of erasing his tarnished former stardom. The film’s rich storyline will be accompanied by a completely original soundtrack redolent with the influences of the early 70’s ranging from Rock n Roll to French Pop. “The Last Beat” will offer audiences a refreshing view of the turbulent end of the 60’s and early 70’s along with an insightful perspective into the melancholy lifestyle and unerring clarity of a rock star and poet coming to terms with his own end. Production will be shot primarily on location in Paris, France later this year.
