However, the Pendragon Pictures team revealed that The Wilde Girls is a comedy feature that takes place in the year 1932 in the heart of the great depression.

Two clueless socialite heiresses with zero survival skills are dumped in the wilderness when they are cheated out of their fortune upon their father’s death. Their problems are compounded when they discover a price has been placed on their heads to ensure they will not return and through a series of missteps become hopelessly lost in the wilderness. An unenthusiastic alliance with a misanthropic mountain man, to be played by rising star and super popular stand-up comic Teddy Smith, may be their only chance of escape.

Director Timothy Hines (Tomorrow’s Today, 10 Days in a Madhouse, War of the Worlds the True Story) says, “As a boy and into my young adulthood I recorded hundreds of hours of the stories of survivors of the 1930s Great Depression. There were loads of amazing and improbable experiences that I always one day intended to fashion into a movie. Then a combination of things, watching streaming videos of clueless entitled women dubbed “Karens” led me to the idea of wondering how these women would survive if pitted against real danger, pitted in real survival situations. Being a fan of aristocracy dramas like Downton Abbey, it hit me to ask, ‘How would someone who was raised so wealthy that they never visited the kitchen in their own house survive in such a situation?’ And the idea was hatched.”

Hines said the script practically wrote itself, “I didn’t really write the script as much as channel it. The characters took over and I continually laughed out loud as they spoke and told their story. It was a joy like I have never had in writing. When I shared the script, literally everyone had the same reaction. It is belly laughs and a good story with much deeper undertones dealing with grief.”

The film will be produced by Hines’ longtime partners, Susan Goforth and Donovan Le who produced the acclaimed movie 10 Days in a Madhouse starring Christopher Lambert (Highlander, Mortal Kombat), and with Kelly Le Brock (Weird Science, Woman in Red). Dominick Martini, executive producer of the successful and critically acclaimed Tomorrow’s Today, will co-produce with on-set duties alongside Goforth.

The principle star talent for one of the main characters, “Tinsley”, has yet to be announced. Besides Teddy Smith, the starring cast includes newcomer Ellie Lehman, who will be joined by Tomorrow’s Today alumni, the brilliantly funny Joanne Scorcia, Adam Gabel with Colin Buckingham, Annunziato Carbone, Dino Castelli and will include roles by Heidi Kravitz (10 Days in a Madhouse), Dominick Martini, Susan Goforth and Donovan Le. More cast members to be announced.
