Marking his first dramatic role in his seasoned career, Golden Globe Nominee David Spade leads an all-star cast in Warning Shot, an independent film to be released in theaters and video on demand (VOD) on September 14, 2018.
Spade deals a memorable performance alongside industry veterans James Earl Jones and Bruce Dern in a film addressing a single mother’s fight for family land water rights. Award-worthy performance is also given by the film’s heroine Audrey (Tammy Blanchard), and 2018’s soon to be most-hated villain Guillermo Díaz playing Rainy, a mentally unstable hitman.
Audrey, a single mother to daughter, Cheyenne (Onata Aprile), is trapped in a constant struggle to make ends meet. Facing eviction, her grandfather passes away, and she inherits the family’s farmhouse, for which the lucrative water rights are coveted by Calvin (Bruce Dern) — a longtime business rival of Audrey’s grandfather. Calvin’s own grandson, Bobby (David Spade), is on a mission to prove that he can take on the family business and decides to take matters into his own hands by hiring Rainy (Guillermo Díaz) and drug-addicted Jawari (Dwight Henry). Their job is to intimidate Audrey and Cheyenne into giving up the property. Once they abduct the innocent passerby David (Frank Whaley), Bobby’s goons realize Audrey does not intend to go quietly, and the situation quickly spirals out of control. In this 87 minutes high stake thriller, we witness the strength of a mother doing everything within her power to protect her young daughter.
Audiences will be on the edge of their seats as the plot unfolds and the wickedness of Spade and Diaz unfold.
The film marks a strong full-length cinematic debut for independent filmmakers, Director Dustin Fairbanks, Screenwriter Breanne Mattson and Producer Spero Dean Stamboulis and Aimee Ng. After seeing the movie Warning Shot, you’ll never look at a glass of water the same way.
