WESTPORT — Lisa Addario, a former Westport resident, and her husband, Joe Syracuse, have crafted a new film due out this summer. Called “Amateur Night,” it’s about a quirky job Syracuse once held — driving hookers around Los Angeles. “It’s sort of ‘After Hours’ meets ‘Risky Business,’ but with a feminist slant,” Addario said.
The movie stars Jason Biggs (“American Pie,” “Orange Is the New Black”), and his real-life wife Jenny Mollen-Biggs, and Ashley Tisdale (“High School Musical”). The movie was purchased by the distributor Cinedigm and will be released in cities across the U.S. and around the world in August, followed two weeks later by a video on demand release, according to Addario.
