The Humphrey Bogart Estate and writer/director Steve Anderson are pleased to announce that the thriller THIS LAST LONELY PLACE , which filmed November-December 2012 in and around Los Angeles, has now wrapped principal photography.

This Last Lonely Place revolves around an injured war vet cab driver (Coiro) who picks up a wealthy investment banker (Berkeley) late one night in Beverly Hills. On edge, the banker confesses to a shady investment scheme, and after picking up his mistress (Pope), it is revealed that a terrible crime has just been committed. Drawn into a conspiracy Gone awry, the cab driver is now at their mercy. As the long dark cab ride progresses - through the lonely streets and back alleys of Los Angeles - dark layers of deceit come to light.
"It was an incredible shoot," says Steve Anderson of Mudflap Films. We shot in iconic locations, such as the penthouse of the Chateau Marmont, the Polo Lounge in the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Sunset Strip, and Rodeo Drive. For most of the exterior locations, we just showed up in the cab and grabbed the shots. We worked with a very small crew, who all did multiple jobs. Our Brave cast really believed in this project, and their support made our innovative production tactics possible. Over forty days, shooting right here in Los Angeles, all for 100K. Amazing."
