If you don’t know the name Taylor Handley yet — his biggest on-screen credits to date include The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and Battle: Los Angeles — chances are that might change over the course of the next year. He’s headlining Jason Dudek‘s Mentryville, which co-stars Danny Glover, but more interesting to me is the supporting credit he has in Curtis Hanson‘s Of Men and Mavericks — which, being a firm L.A. Confidential devotee, I’m obviously looking forward to.
And with the indie thriller Channeling, Handley has now added another project to his in-the-works lineup. The film comes from Drew Thomas, who also penned the script and, along with Laila Ansari and Gerry Santos, will produce the film. It’s been described rather vaguely as a story that “centers [on] characters who seek validation by broadcasting their lives to as big an audience as possible.” [Variety]
Channeling began production in Los Angeles earlier this month, so it’s likely that Handley‘s role will be minimal. But with a plot description that abstract, it’s probably best to hold off on making assumptions. No word yet on a potential release date.
What do you make of Handley’s potential? Have you seen him in anything to date?
