Burning Palms is an upcoming satirical film based on Los Angeles stereotypes told through five intertwining storylines.[1][2]



The film explores satires of Angeleno stereotypes, which are told through five interlacing stories.[1][2] The five intertwining segments are based on popular stereotypes of West Hollywood, Santa Monica, Sherman Oaks, Westwood and Holmby Hills.[2] Each of the characters in the film confront taboos and an uncertain, often darkly humorous, fate.[2] Producer Oren Segal likens the film to "a John Waters version of 'Short Cuts,'"[2] a 1993 drama film directed by Robert Altman.




Media outlets such as The Hollywood Reporter and TV Guide reported that the ensemble-driven indie feature will star Shannen Doherty and Dylan McDermott as well as Zoe Saldana, Lake Bell, Nick Stahl, Paz Vega, Adriana Barraza, Colleen Camp, Jamie Chung, Robert Hoffman, Peter Macdissi, Emily Meade, Anson Mount, Rosamund Pike, Austin Williams and Tom Wright.[1]


Palms was scripted by Christopher B. Landon, who also wrote the 2007 thriller Disturbia. Palms will also mark Landon's directorial debut.[2]


The film is currently in production with principal photography taking place in Los Angeles, California. It will also move on to shoot in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.[1] Oren Segal, Steven Prince and Jason Hewitt are reported to be producing the film, and Tyler Thompson, Vince Morella and Naz Jafri will contribute as executive producers.[2]
