Oct. 19--Keith Carradine will star in "Chesapeake," a drama to be filmed in the Chesapeake Bay region next year. The plot concerns a fisherman whose solitary life is changed when he saves a young boy from drowning.
Carradine, who won an Academy Award for the song "I'm Easy" from the 1975 film "Nashville," is the son of veteran actor John Carradine and brother of the late actor David Carradine.
The film will be written and directed by Eric Hunter and will use underwater photography and 360-degree views of the area. "The catalyst for me choosing this location was Chesapeake Bay's watermen culture," Hunter said. "We wanted to create a genuine setting where these fictional characters live."
Production details are still in development.
