This past week we had the pleasure to sit down and talk with Richard Van Den of Simply the Best Productions. He came onto the Hollywood scene in 2015 with Tina The Movie, then released Olivia Williams and Two Sisters last year. His newest release is In 1981.
What is “In 1981” about?
In 1981 is the name of a new series of films that I’m developing. The first one is about Acron, who is the newly elected president of Libertà. In the capitol Stabania there are lots of problems that he must face.
Who are part of the film’s cast?
The cast is led by Robert Downey JR, the award winning actor who might be best known from the Batman series. Angela Bassett, who has played a role in every Simply the Best production and I want to keep that tradition alive. Then two legends; Christopher Lambert and Philip Baker Hall.
Where did this idea come from?
Well, I am a huge fan of Avatar the Last Airbender. In that series there was a very interesting map and that inspired me to create my own map. This lead to the creation of the “In 1981” series.
What is next for you?
I am working on a Olivia Williams sequel and I would love to make the next entry into the “In 1981” series.
In 1981 hits theaters worldwide today from the Flip Brothers Studio.
