NEW YORK, Sept. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Stanulis Productions is delighted to announce The Orchard's worldwide launch of The Networker, directed by indie veteran John Andrew Gallagher.
The feel-good indie comedy boasts an impressive cast, including Steve Stanulis (HBO's The Deuce), William Forsythe (The Rock), Sean Young (Blade Runner), Alysia Reiner (Orange is the New Black), Stephen Baldwin (The Usual Suspects), Philip Moon (The Big Lebowski), Jeremy Luke (The Irishman), Deborah Twiss (Kick-Ass), Al Sapienza (House of Cards), Natalie Knepp (Z: The Beginning of Everything), Victor Colicchio (Summer of Sam), Lo Freidenstine (Boardwalk Empire), Samantha Scaffidi (Terrifier), Renoly Santiago (Con Air), Brian Kelly (The Deli), Artie Pasquale(The Sopranos), Shing Ka (The Manchurian Candidate), and Joe D'Onofrio (Goodfellas), Shenaz Treasury (The Big Sick), and John Bianco (The Sopranos).
"The Networker was a labor of love," says Gallagher, "and we hope audiences will feel that. It's about family, food and second chances, suitable for all ages, with a wonderful script by Victor Ribaudo. I'm very proud of the acting — I've directed legends like Ben Gazzara, Rita Moreno and Stacy Keach; William Forsythe and Sean Young are right up there with those artists. Steve Stanulis is especially strong in the lead; having cast John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Amanda Peet, Vinny Pastore, Gretchen Mol, Matthew Lillard and Zach Braff, among others, in early roles, I can testify that Steve truly carries the movie on his impressive shoulders. The Networker establishes him as a star."
"One of the many things I learned from John," says Stanulis, "is the importance of actors creating their own work. With that in mind, I started Stanulis Productions in 2009." His maiden feature was the drama The Invisible Life of Thomas Lynch, followed by Long Shot Louie, Say Something, The Fifth Borough (a new TV series coming from Netflix), the documentary Legends of Freestyle, and his narrative feature debut Clinton Road starring Ice-T. Gallagher has directed nine features, including the indie classics The Deli and Blue Moon, Street Hunter, Men Lie and Cupidity, and produced another ten. He is currently in production on Sarah Q, starring Emmy James, Oscar nominees Burt Young and Sally Kirkland, The Sopranos' Frank Vincent, Tony Sirico, Vincent Pastore, Federico Castelluccio, and William DeMeo, Lucie Pohl, Garry Pastore, and The Networker's Stanulis, Shing Ka, Joe D'Onofrio, Samantha Scaffidi, Lo Freidenstine and Victor Colicchio.
