Production has wrapped on the high-profile movie, ’20 MINUTES’ set to hit theaters in March 2020.
’20 Minutes’ is about an incoming ballistic missile to Hawaii changes twelve people's lives when they discover they have 20 minutes to live.
The film was shot entirely in Hawaii and releases in theaters nationwide in February 2020.
“The movie ponders the ultimate question,” says Chey. “What if I had twenty minutes to live?”
The film is that it also comes on the heels of the ballistic missile warning in Hawaii in 2018 that caused many to panic and think of their eternal destiny. The false warning made worldwide news and graced the front pages of the BBC, Yahoo, CNN, Fox News, and 350 major news outlets.
Over 7,000 actors submitted for 20 Minutes’. The casting team sought actors in Hawaii, LA, NYC, Toronto, and Guam.
The characters in the film range from a conservative Republican and a liberal Democrat; a white nationalist and a black militant; atheist and Believer; and a Japanese billionaire and Native Hawaiian – all seeking refuge as the missile approaches.
“It’s amazing as we approach death to see how insignificant politics and race become,” says Chey, who was in Hawaii at the time of the false missile alert that struck 1.5 million cell phones and caused state-wide panic.
Chey also produced ‘Freedom’ (Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Sharon Leal) that was shot on the Amistad and ‘David and Goliath’ filmed in North Africa and London. He also produced and directed Sony Pictures ‘Slamma Jamma’ (Michael Irvin, Chris Staples) which had a national theater release on March 24, 2017. The film hit 502 theaters in 281 cities across the U.S.
