Lights, camera, action!

The Bronx is stealing the spotlight from Hollywood with a new, feature length film titled ‘Mott Haven,’ starring Robert Davi, best known as Special Agent Johnson in ‘Die Hard’ and Bronx actor Chuck Zito of the show, ‘Sons of Anarchy.’

Expected to debut around springtime, the movie follows Davi’s character Hal Stewart, a down on his luck former radio mogul that’s fallen on hard times.

After he enlists the aid of a beleaguered businessman, Michael Roman played by Paul Wilson to battle a thuggish superintendent, Ray Pizzalongo played by Zito, the film shows what life is like in the changing south Bronx and how a group of tenants called ‘The Tribe’ overcome efforts to force them from their homes.

The film is directed, produced and written by trio Michael Domino, Jesse Wakeman and Robert Mladinich.
