May 25th, 2022 – Film director Michelle Danner has launched production on “Miranda’s Victim,” a never-before-told true story written by George Kolber starring an all-star award-winning cast.

“Miranda’s Victim” follows the riveting story of young Trish in 1963, who is kidnapped and brutally raped by Ernesto Miranda. Committed to putting her assailant in prison, Trish’s life is destroyed by America’s legal system as she triggers a law that transforms the Nation.

Michelle Danner says: “The first time I read George Kolber’s riveting script and learned about Trish’s experience, it moved and inspired me. “Miranda’s Victim” puts us at the intersection between a brutal rape case and and a national movement for civil liberties.”

The film follows on the heels of Danner’s latest success, “The Runner,” an action thriller about a troubled teen forced by police to go undercover to expose a dangerous drug kingpin. It stars Edouard Philipponnat, Cameron Douglas, Elisabeth Röhm and Eric Balfour and Nadji Jeter and is set for release in 2022 after a successful Festival run with numerous awards all around the world.

“Miranda’s Victim” is Danner’s seventh directorial project to date. Her first, 2006’s “How to Go Out on a Date in Queens,” starred Jason Alexander, Ron Perlman and Enrique Murciano. She also helmed the psychological Horror Thriller “Hello Herman” starring Norman Reedus in 2012 and the comedy “The Bandit Hound” in 2016 with Judd Nelson, Lou Ferrigno, Catherine Bell and Joe Flannigan.

A legendary acting teacher and co-founder of the Edgemar Center for the Arts and the Los Angeles Acting Conservatory, Danner’s list of students has included Christian Slater, Salma Hayek, Gerard Butler, Seth MacFarlane, Penelope Cruz, Chris Rock, Gabrielle Union and Zooey Deschanel.
