Creative Forge Productions, a motion picture company on Daniel Island, plans to begin shooting a $1.2 million feature-length film, written and directed by Brad Jayne, along the South Carolina coast next summer, says studio spokesperson Doug Coupe. Called Warrior, the movie will tell the story of a young teenaged hellraiser named Joseph who goes to Myrtle Beach for a 24-hour bender. During his misadventures, Joseph encounters a sage preacher who sets him on spiritual quest to find himself. Creative Forge was won the interest of some “A-list talent” to act in the movie, Coupe says, and plans to submit Warrior to “top tier festivals,” like Sundance and Tribeca.
