Oct 01 2011 New Movie: "The Goats"

Chandler just booked the male lead role in D.J Caruso's movie "The Goats", based on a novel by the author Brock Cole. Annalise Basso got the female lead role. Filming is supposed to start this month in Georgia. You can read more about the movie here. Below is a summary of the book/movie (it seems like super interesting story!):

A boy and a girl are stripped and marooned on a small island for the night. They are the "goats". The kids at camp think it’s a great joke, just a harmless old tradition. But the goats don’t see it that way. Instead of trying to get back to camp, they decide to call home. But no one can come and get them. So they’re on their own, wandering through a small town trying to find clothing, food, and shelter, all while avoiding suspicious adults—especially the police. The boy and the girl find they rather like life on their own. If their parents ever do show up to rescue them, the boy and the girl might be long gone.

Sep 14 2011 New Movie: "Plastic Jesus"

Chandler booked the lead role in an indie movie called "Plastic Jesus"! The talented Mackenzie Foy booked the other lead role, and is going to play Chan's sister in the film. They are currently filming in North Carolina. You can more about the project below. Congrats, Chandler!

After winning an audience award at Sundance for teen thriller "To.get.her," director Erica Dunton is turning her attention to "Plastic Jesus," an indie written by Bryan Bertino and starring "Twilight Saga" moppet Mackenzie Foy and Chandler Canterbury.

Production is under way in North Carolina on the coming-of-age story in the vein of "Stand By Me," which follows three small-town kids who encounter mystery, loss and hope. Foy and Canterbury play the two young leads, while Paul Schneider and Hilarie Burton ("One Tree Hill") will play their parents.

Indie fixture Joshua Leonard ("Higher Ground") co-stars alongside Bryce Hurless.

Bertino, whose last produced script was the 2008 sleeper hit "The Strangers," produces with Adrienne Biddle under their Unbroken Pictures banner along with Heather Rae ("Frozen River") and Stephanie Caleb, while Global Creative's Christopher Rockwell will co-produce.

Rae recently produced another coming-of-age indie, Leah Meyerhoff's "Unicorns," a Sundance Lab finalist and IFP grant winner that stars Natalia Dyer ("The Healer").

Foy, who has a handful of TV appearances on her resume, will soon be seen as Renesmee, the spawn of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson's characters in "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2."

Canterbury recently played Nicolas Cage and Jude Law's sons in "Knowing" and "Repo Men," respectively. Rockwell manages Foy and Canterbury, who are also repped by Coast to Coast Talent Group and UTA, respectively. Latter agency also reps Bertino. Dunton is repped by Echo Lake Management.
