Dushku gets Shock'd

Eliza Dushku, Alan Rickman, Bill Pullman, Rachael Taylor and Chris Pine have signed on to star in the upcoming wine drama BOTTLE SHOCK. Now "wine drama" doesn't exactly have me giddy with anticipation but it's certainly an interesting cast. The film takes place in the 70s and tells the true story of the Montelena Winery which put the Napa Valley on the wine map. Pine will play the vineyard owner, Taylor an intern (and likely love interest) at the vineyard, Dushku a bartender, Pullman the father of Pine and Rickman the judge in the tasting competition. Randall M. Miller will direct from a script he co-wrote with Jody Savin. Dushku has been relatively quiet lately since her Fox series "Tru Calling" was cancelled but has THE ALPHABET KILLER due later this year. Rickman has roles in both HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX and SWEENEY TODD on the way. Filming is scheduled to begin next month in Napa and Sonoma.

Extra Tidbit: "Shoot the glass."
