Taylor Kinney Indie CONSUMED Premieres Tonight
November 10, 2015 by Mike McNamara
CHICAGO FIRE fans, this one's for you. The Illinois-made thriller CONSUMED bows in Chicago tonight and its cast includes CHICAGO FIRE star Taylor Kinney. If you're free tonight, you'll be at City North Stadium 14 at 2600 North Western Avenue at 7:30 pm sharp.
CONSUMED is a dramatic thriller a la Erin Brockovich set in the complex world of GMOs. The story is anchored by a working-class, single Mother on a hunt to uncover the cause of her son's mysterious illness. Interwoven are the stories of an organic farmer, the CEO of a biotechnology corporation, two scientists on the verge of a major discovery, and an ex-cop caught in the middle of it all.
CONSUMED was filmed in Champaign last summer, with Illinois line producer Brett Hays and 1st AD Anthony Cabral heading up the hometown crew. The indie was directed by New York filmmaker Daryl Wein and co-written with Zoe Lister-Jones, who stars in the film. Cast includes Danny Glover (LETHAL WEAPON), Anthony Edwards (ER), and the inimitable Beth Grant (THE MINDY PROJECT).
