Alessandra Torresani, recently of Jane Espenson‘s webseries HUSBANDS, and SyFy’s CAPRICA, has two new films in the works. The first of them is A GREEN STORY, which is a biopic about Van Vlahakis, the founder of Earth Friendly Products. Torresani plays Maria, love interest of the young Vlahakis (George Flynn). A GREEN STORY also stars Malcolm McDowell, Billy Zane, Shannon Elizabeth, and Star Trek’s John Billingsley. It will open the Los Angeles Greek Film Festival on 31 May.
In 2013, Torresani will be Emma in THE MOMENT, the second film by Director Jane Weinstock, which will also star Jennifer Jason Leigh (Maria in SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK). THE MOMENT describes itself as a “smart and sexy thriller about a war photographer Lee (Jennifer Jason Lee) who returns to Los Angeles to rehabilitate after narrowly escaping death. While in the hospital she meets John (Martin Henderson) and they develop a friendship that turns romantic. Then John goes missing. Eventually, Lee begins to suspect that she killed him, and, after further investigation, begins to suspect that her daughter killed him.”
