A Directorial Pivot: From Dito Montiel to Amin Matalqa

The film’s journey has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. Initially announced in July 2020 with Dito Montiel at the helm, “Afterward” was set to explore the true story of a man grappling with the loss of his daughter while fighting against corrupt small-town politics. However, the project has since taken a new direction under Amin Matalqa, a director celebrated for his storytelling prowess in projects like “5000 Blankets” and the Netflix series ‘Jinn.

This change in directorial vision adds a layer of intrigue to the project. Matalqa’s knack for storytelling that bridges cultural gaps makes him an exciting choice for a film that promises to delve deep into the underbelly of small-town secrets and high-stakes drama.

Beverly D’Angelo Takes Center Stage

The casting of Beverly D’Angelo, best known for her iconic role as Ellen Griswold in the National Lampoon’s Vacation films, is another twist in the tale. While Aaron Eckhart was initially attached to the project, D’Angelo’s involvement adds a new dimension to the film. Her recent media appearances discussing her past relationships have already piqued public interest, making her a compelling choice for a film that promises to explore complex emotional landscapes.

The Casting Alchemists: Jordan Bass, Lauren Bass, and Jennifer Ricchiazzi

The casting for “Afterward” is in the hands of a trio of industry magicians: Jordan Bass, Lauren Bass, and Jennifer Ricchiazzi. Jordan and Lauren, a brother-sister duo, have a history of working on diverse film and television projects, while Jennifer Ricchiazzi brings her own rich experience to the table. Their collective expertise promises a cast that will bring the gripping storyline to life in a way that resonates with audiences.

A Story That Promises to Grip Your Soul

The narrative of “Afterward” centers around a small-town father who becomes desperate in his quest for justice following his daughter’s death. However, the accident that claimed her life has sinister roots, and someone is willing to go to great lengths to keep them hidden. With a change in cast and director, the film is shaping up to be a complex, multi-layered drama that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

The Cinematic Eye: Stéphane Vallée

Adding to the film’s allure is Director of Photography Stéphane Vallée. Though details about Vallée’s involvement are sparse, his role in capturing the essence of Louisiana and the film’s tense atmosphere cannot be overstated. His lens will undoubtedly add a layer of visual storytelling that complements the narrative.
