Jade Bryce has booked roles in a trio of features: indie comedy 25, horror pic The Book Of Habbalah, Book 1 and 365 Less Strangers. In 25, she will play Jackie, a self-important all-American girl who is confused by life’s complexities but simplifies them quickly. Bryce has a lead role in Habbalah, the story of a book that holds the dreadful truths of life within its pages. She will star in 365 Less Strangers as a woman in a new city who is lacking connections and feeling lonely despite an active dating life. Bryce also wrote and directs the pic and produces with Tom Shadyac. A model and MMA ring girl, she is managed by Nocturnal Entertainment.
Milo Ventimiglia and Katee Sackoff lead the ensemble cast of Tell. The indie centers on Ethan Tell (Ventimiglia), a small-time crook who makes a big score then gets busted. But the money is never recovered, and upon his release from prison, Tell is confronted by a greedy ex-wife, the partner he betrayed, his parole officer and two corrupt cops — all looking for their piece of the loot. Director Juan M.R. Luna’s film also stars Robert Patrick, Jason Lee, Alan Tudyk, Faizon Love and John Michael Higgins. It’s produced by Kevin Mann, Matt Perniciaro and Christopher Boyd of Haven Entertainment and Ventimiglia and Russ Cundiff of DiVide Pictures. Mauricio Betancur, Rick Matros and George Voskericyan exec produce.
