2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Chase Palmer’s Naked Singularity

2021 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Chase Palmer’s Naked Singularity

We were anticipating a showing of Naked Singularity at last year’s edition of Sundance and of course it didn’t land anywhere else this year so we’re back to the starting blocks with regards to Chase Palmer‘s directorial debut. Palmer wrote It, and began his movie-making career with the 2002 short Neo-Noir – a Sundance selection. Production on this project began in May of 2019 with John Boyega, Olivia Cooke, Bill Skarsgård, Ed Skrein and Tim Blake Nelson. Eskmo (aka Brendan Angelides) made his feature solo scoring debut on this item and Andrij Parekh is the cinematographer on this one.

Gist: Based on Sergio De La Pava’s prize-winning novel, this centers on an idealistic young New York City public defender burned out by the system and in the middle of a mental breakdown. Seeing signs of the universe collapsing around him, he gets suspended and decides to rob a $75M drug deal off one of his clients.

Production Co./Producers: Scott Free’s Ryan Stowell, Kevin J. Walsh, 3311 Productions’ Tony Ganz, P. Jennifer Dana, Ross Jacobson.
