Los Angeles/New York Actress Megan Penn will be playing “Sarah” in the upcoming trailer Whatever It Takes.
Director Terry R. Wickham says, “When I visualized the scene we are doing for the trailer, I felt there was a missing ingredient. I sensed there should be a pretty woman mixed within the church scene to satisfy that part of the eventual watching audience.
I knew that not only should she be beautiful and sexy, but provide an innocence and softness the movie needs for balance. Sort of a bright light mixed amongst the darkness of the situation and different moral characters.
I told this to Producer/Co-Writer/Actor/Creator Rocco Gioia. I voiced that it would be smart if this female part became an integral supporting role within the feature film, because this would be unexpected and Rocco agreed. I honestly looked at this part as sort of the Amy Brenneman “Eady” role in Michael Mann’s Heat, which is one of my favorite movies.
Rocco suggested we cast the actress that played my “date” in Edwin Figueroa’s Choke movie. I couldn’t argue with that, so I called her.
Megan was immediately interested in playing the part and went as far as getting herself back to the East Coast from Los Angeles to be able to film the Trailer Saturday January 21st. This shows incredible commitment & dedication on her part to the project. I’m truly looking forward to working with her again, this time as her director.”
