Pastor Brothers Direct Strange But True
Carriers filmmakers get a second gig

21 October 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Variety

Their first film sat on the shelf for years until star Chris Pine broke out with Star Trek and suddenly it made sense to distributors to arrange a release date for Carriers. Now Alex and David Pastor are set to direct Strange But True, a dramatic thriller with something of a supernatural twist.

Based on the John Searles novel of the same name, it takes place five years after the death of a young man called Ronnie on the night of his high school prom. His girlfriend Melissa has retreated from the world ever since in her grief, his mother Charlene overeats and lost her job as a result. And then, five years after Ronnie's death, Melissa turns up on Charlene's doorstep, pregnant, and claims that the child is Ronnie's. Now we're not gynaecologists, but that seems a little impossible.

Searles wrote the screenplay with Matchstick Men's Eric Garcia, and shooting's due to start early next year. So based on the Pastors' luck so far, we should see it in 2015.
