The Newest John Sayles Film: “Go for Sisters”

Go For Sisters.

Due to a surge of interest on Twitter, I am herewith authorized to release details.

GO FOR SISTERS, a film written and directed by John Sayles, will shoot this summer in Los Angeles, Calexico, Mexicali and Tijuana.  The director’s 18th feature will star Edward James Olmos, LisaGay Hamilton, Yolonda Ross and Hector Elizondo.  The plot concerns two friends, Bernice and Fontayne, who grow up so close they ‘go for sisters’, but then lose track of each other for twenty years.  They are reunited when Bernice is assigned as the parole officer for Fontayne, who is fresh out of prison and fighting heroin addiction.  But Bernice has an even more threatening problem— With a budget well under a million dollars and four weeks to shoot, this will be a return to the guerilla style of filmmaking familiar to Sayles from his early 80’s films Return of the Secaucus Seven, Lianna and Brother from Another Planet.  Production will begin in mid-July.

If you haven’t found us on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ yet, this is a great time to connect!

This summer we’ll have updates and behind-the-scenes photos from the set, insider information about the process, and insights from John himself right here on the blog, and you’ll hear all about them first.
