The first trailer has been released for Diverted Eden, a crime thriller from writer-director Prince Bagdasarian (Abstraction). Halloween native, Scout Taylor-Compton leads the cast as Detective Fini, investigating the kidnapping of 7-year old, Eden. The ensemble cast includes Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), Najarra Townsend (Contracted), Jason Stuart (Birth of a Nation), Ken Davitian (Borat), Manu Intiraymi (Star Trek Voyager), Betty Gabriel (Get Out), and many more.
“After 7 year-old Eden is kidnapped during a home invasion, single father Dane Hunte takes matters into his own hands, while Detective Fini, leading the investigation, unravels the mystery surrounding the unusual crime.”
Diverted Eden is produced by Shirley Kim and Robert Shinn of Imaginating Pictures. Portrayed in a classic who-done-it roll out with wall-to-wall heart-pounding action, the film will keep film festival audiences on the edge of their seats when it is released nationwide later this year.
