Currently in pre-production, Paladino is a Mob film about a man who goes to prison for a crime that he didn't commit. Written and directed by two time Cannes Film Festival Showcase selected Chasen Parker, Paladino is an independent film looking to make a big splash. Filming is scheduled to begin shortly, with Chasen also playing the lead in the film. Chasen is a twenty year old junior at Emerson College, and put together a staggeringly large cast and crew of forty nine highly skilled students and professionals for Paladino. Aside from his own accomplishments, he comes from an impressive background as well. Chasen's grandmother was none other than three time Oscar nominee Eleanor Parker, a world renowned actress famous for a myriad of film roles, including the role of The Baroness in The Sound of Music.
"She [Eleanor Parker] was one of my best friends when I was a kid. When I lived out in L.A, her and I were really close. She's someone who I very much want to make proud, wherever she is."
