CFN – Not too many first time directors sell out 700 seat halls for their debuts, but that’s exactly what Kern Saxton has done with his labour of love, Sushi Girl which makes its International Premiere at the 16th Annual Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal !
Teaming up with his homeys Writer/Producer Destin Pfaff, Neal Allen Fischer, and Suren M Seron to form Assembly line, Sushi Girl boasts a huge ensemble cast including Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Tony Todd (Candyman) Noah Hathaway (Never Ending Story) James Duvall, Danny Trejo, Jeff Fahey, Andy Mackenzie, Michael Biehn (Terminator), and Sonny Chiba!
Sushi Girl is getting raves and is a bit of a cross between the Expendables & Reservoir Dogs. Saxton is getting compares to Quentin Tarentino, but I see a bit more Roger Avary in Sushi Girl than Tarantino.
I had a chance to catch up with most of the gang at Fantasia!
Noah Hathaway and I talked about bridging from Child star to acting as an adult. Sushi Girl was his first film after a long break from the film biz, and he’s getting rave reviews for his performance.
Destin Pfaff, writer/producer on Sushi Girl and I talked about why writer/producers don’t get interviewed enough. Sushi Girl is a huge departure from his gig on TV with Millionaire Matchmaker.
For the 700 people getting to see Sushi Girl tonight they’re in for a huge treat! Luckily it will be available on a screen near you shortly!
