"LOS ANGELES, CA (WBAP) - The infamous 2001 windshield murder case out of Fort Worth has been turned into a feature-length movie called, Stuck.
The 2001 Chante Mallard windshield murder case is the inspiration for a new movie which is expected to be released sometime next year. Stuart Gordon, of "Re-Animator" fame, directs the film which stars Mena Suvari as the Chante Mallard character and Stephen Rea representing the victim, Gregory Biggs.
"I was reading about it in the newspapers and I just couldn't believe what I was reading," said Stuck Director Stuart Gordon. "I mean, it was one of those stories that just completely grabs you and you know, what would make a woman do something like this?"
Gordon and his writing-partner spent two years writing the story, which Gordon describes the first-half of the film as being pretty accurate. He admits that he took liberties with the story and that the news accounts about the case were used as inspiration for Stuck.
American Beauty star, Mena Suvari, plays the Chante Mallard character. Actor Stephen Rea, of The Crying Game and V for Vendetta, plays the Gregory Biggs character.
The film debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last month. Gordon expects it will continue on the film festival circuit and should be released to the public next year."
