Rivulet Media (RIVU) announced today that Colson Baker (The Dirt, Big Time Adolescence) will star in the upcoming music saga Good News. Tim Sutton (Funny Face, Donnybrook, Dark Night) wrote the original screenplay and will direct the film which is set to begin principal photography on July 8th in Los Angeles. Jib Polhemus will produce alongside Rivulet Media’s film division President, Rob Paris and COO Mike Witherill.
Good News tells the story of the last days of a rising but troubled musician (Baker). A work of fiction inspired by the brilliance and tragedy of so many contemporary artists, including Mac Miller, Lil Peep, Pop Smoke and Juice Wrld, Good News is a soulful, authentic and surreal cautionary tale – one that is both universal and uniquely of its time.
Rivulet Media’s Rob Paris said: “Colson Baker is that rare talent who is ascending at an incredible pace both in film and music. He is exactly the kind of artist that Rivulet Media is looking to partner with and we couldn’t be more excited to support him on both fronts, especially with Tim Sutton’s powerful screenplay and vision, which are custom tailored to Colson’s formidable skills.”
