He has worked for seven years researching and writing the story of America’s most prolific, yet little known serial killer.
Bass founded Bold Films in 2004, long with his life long friend Michel Litvak. Although he left Bold Films in 2006 to pursue his creative vision, The management team he brought in to Bold continues the pattern of producing indie films that receive critical acclaim (Drive, nominated for an Oscar, and Only God Forgives, up in 2013 for a Palme D’Or award at the Cannes Film Festival)..

Lindsay Lohan always seems to have a lot on her plate, and this week she piled on yet another project. The teen starlet — whose second album, A Little More Personal, lands in stores next month — signed on for “Bobby,” a partially fictionalized account of Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 assassination that focuses on the interconnected lives of characters working and staying at Los Angeles’ Ambassador Hotel in the hours leading up to the murder.
Lohan joins an ensemble cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Sharon Stone, Demi Moore, Nick Cannon and Elijah Wood (see “Elijah Wood Joins Emilio Estevez’s Robert Kennedy Project”).
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress, who played an innocent teenager in “Freaky Friday” and a naive transfer student in “Mean Girls,” will portray a woman who marries her boyfriend’s brother (Wood) to spare him from the Vietnam War draft. The plan backfires, however, when Lohan falls in love with Wood’s character. Emilio Estevez will direct the independent film, which he also wrote. Production is expected to begin next week in Los Angeles.
“Lindsay, who you do not think of as an indie film actress, is an inspired choice and is the heart of the movie,” Edward Bass, the film’s producer, told the Reporter.
Shia LaBeouf (“Constantine,” “I, Robot”) and Brian Geraghty (“Jarhead”) have also been added to the cast. Both will be portraying members of Kennedy’s campaign staff.
Lohan recently stepped behind the lens for her directorial debut, helming the video for “Confessions of a Broken Heart,” the first single from A Little More Personal. She also has two films in the can, the indie “A Prairie Home Companion,” (with Woody Harrelson, Tommy Lee Jones, Virginia Madsen, and Meryl Streep) and “Just My Luck,” in which she plays a lucky New Yorker whose fortune changes when she falls in love with disaster-prone dude (see “Lindsay Lohan Pushes Her ‘Luck’ “).
