In summer 2013, a short film called Maniac is due to be released into the festival circuit. The films stars Bill Sorvino (who gave a stellar performance in the award-winning Pollination *) as the titular character. Written and directed by Nihad Shalabi and produced by Sam Borowski, the film co-stars Joe D’Onofrio, who has performed roles in films such as Goodfellas, A Bronx Tale and Analyze That. Maniac also features Borowski regular and Sorvino’s Pollination * co-star, Mary Dimino, who also starred in Borowski’s award-winning film Night Club that featured the late Ernest Borgnine in one of his final roles.
With a great lineup of films having already been created with a few of these actors working together, audiences can already expect that Maniac is likely to have the same skill and talent behind the scenes and in front of the camera to provide a unique and intriguing story to audiences later this year.
Shooting is set to begin soon for the short film, which already has all of the makings of an instant classic.
