Jay Kubassek and Aliquot Films are proud to have joined the MESKADA production which officially goes into production May 12, 2009. Shooting is scheduled to begin on June 8th.

Starring Nick Stahl (HBO’s “Carnivale”) Rachel Nichols (“GI Joe” “Star Trek”) Kellan Lutz (“Twilight”) Vincent D’Onofrio (“Law and Order” “Brooklyn’s Finest”) and Mary-Kate Olsen (“The Wackness”), Meskada tells the story of small-town detective, Noah Cordin, as he attempts to solve a juvenile homicide that occurred during a home burglary in his affluent town of Hilliard. The dead boy’s mother, Allison Connor, is a member of the Meskada County Board of Commissioners, and a powerful woman in Hilliard; and the entire township rallies together in solidarity – to support her and Detective Cordin’s efforts to find the killers.

Unfortunately, the burglars left no clues or leads at the crime scene – except for a tiny scrap of paper, which vaguely points Noah and county detective Leslie Spencer in the direction of Noah’s OWN hometown of Caswell. Noah and Leslie return to Caswell, where Noah re-connects with his old friends and roots, troubled at how economically downtrodden Caswell has become. Noah’s investigation into the Connor homicide starts off respectfully, as he enlists the help of his old friends Daniel Hartfield, a cop in Caswell, and Billy Burns, a local bar owner.

However, as Noah fails to extract a suspect, tensions rise feverishly between Hilliard and Caswell. The Meskada County Board of Commissioners threatens to derail a newly-planned manufacturing plant from setting up in Caswell, which would bring CRUCIALLY needed jobs into their local economy. Shocked by the threatened sabotage, Daniel, Billy, and all of Caswell begin their own investigation into their town – to reveal the killers and put their manufacturing plant back on track. And through all of this, Noah’s loyalties are torn between his past and his present…until the Connor murder investigation comes to a shocking climax.

Aliquot Films is NYC based independent film fund and production company founded by Jay Kubassek.

    Shit you guys, I was looking forward for this project because of Penn Badgley. he is a good actor.

  • heathermc 10 years ago

    The fact that Jay is on holiday in the Caymans through much of June does not bode well for the fate of this movie. Which is bad news for Kellan Lutz who is one of my favorite actors. And the plot of this movie sounds really interesting, too.

  • Jay 10 years ago

    Nick Stahl has been cast. Penn has Not:(

    Trust me when I say the other three producers will be able to handle things just fine while I am gone. Meskada is in really good shape and everything is on schedule.

  • Daniel 10 years ago

    I’m a film student and I’ve been told by my girl friends that Penn will be in this awesome indie film. They are excited for it and for him. But he is not one of the cast. Looking at those previous post. I guess a lot of people are looking forward to see him in this movie, MESKADA.
    Jay, is there any chance like Rachel and some other post will get their wish for Penn to be in one of your project?

    I just saw a picture of a man in the Slaters Grocery store in Cairo NY who looked like he could be Vincent D’Onofrios Twin Brother! The name on the pic is Dakota D’Onofrio. Any chance this was actually Vincent? I didnt think he had any brothers…
