Monday morning listeners of Indie 103.1 were introduced to the cast of Alpine PicturesÂ Love Is the Drug during Dicky BarrettÂs Mighty Morning Show.
Cast members Lizzy Caplan (Orange County, Mean Girls, ÂFreaks & GeeksÂ), John Patrick Amedori (Unbreakable, Butterfly Effect, Little Athens), Jonathon Trent (Delusion, Smile, Boy Culture), Jenny Wade (Monster-in-Law, Project Green Light, Ice Harvest) and D.J. Cotrona (Skin, Backwater) of Alpine PicturesÂ teen drama Love Is the Drug surprised Dicky Barrett, host of Indie 103.1Âs Mighty Morning Show when they dropped by early Monday morning.
Dicky Barrett, former lead singer of the band ÂThe Mighty Mighty Bosstones,Â recently joined the amazing line-up of DJÂs at Indie 103.1 as the new morning voice for the ÂMighty Morning ShowÂ which airs from around 7a.m. to 10a.m. weekdays. The station format, song selection and personalities (which include Crystal Method, Henry Rollins, and the Sex PistolsÂ Steve Jones) are causing a huge sensation throughout Los Angeles, leaving the other stations wondering what button to push next.
The morning show is no exception. On MondayÂs ÂMighty Morning ShowÂ, Dicky talked with the cast of Alpine PictureÂs Love Is the Drug, which is currently filming in Los Angeles. Directed by Elliott Lester, the film focuses on the lives of five teens in Los Angeles during their last summer before college and how drugs, love, and the pressures of responsibility affect and shape their lives. Lester says of the film, ÂIt is a fresh story, but if pushed it could be loosely reminiscent of Foxes (1980) or Less Than Zero (1987) with a bit of The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999)Â adding ÂIf pressed really hard, cinematically it has a certain feel similar to Requiem for a Dream (2000), but it is completely itÂs own storyÂ.
"Love is the Drug" was written by Wesley Strick (Arachnophobia, Cape Fear, The Glass House) with Steve Allison handling re-writes. Alpine Pictures, Inc. is producing the film in association with Box Office Productions, LLC with Executive Producers Ryan Carroll, Roland Carroll and Neil Kaufman. The film is directed by Elliott Lester with Matt Aberle as music supervisor and casting handled by Anne McCarthy and Jay Scully of Engine.
Alpine Pictures, Inc. is a 10 year-old independent film production and distribution company located in Burbank, CA. In addition to "Love is the Drug", Alpine just signed a five-picture deal with Resolution Independent of Australia and has the horror film Vampire Bachelor Party, along with several other films, currently in development. The company hopes that these efforts will help make way for it to enter the public arena this year.
