Sir Patrick Stewart’s new rescue dog Ginger isn’t the only pit bull star in L.A. right now: Three adoptable pitties just walked the red carpet for their new movie “Fallen Stars.”
Asher, Rocket and Henry strutted their stuff alongside their human costars at the March 8 premiere of “Fallen Stars” at Laemmle’s Music Hall in Beverly Hills.
Michelle Ang (“Fear the Walking Dead”) and Ryan O’Nan (“Fargo”) star in the indie drama as a mismatched pair who meet through an animal rescue.
The Los Angeles premiere was the last night in an eight-city tour benefiting local animal rescue groups. Wednesday’s special screening benefited Los Angeles-based Angel City Pit Bulls, a non-profit dedicated to creating a better future for pit bulls. Angel City Pit Bulls was co-founded by Brian Jett, who also wrote and directed “Fallen Stars.”
“I don’t know that ever in my career will I get an opportunity to do something where I can write and direct, and also endorse animal rescue,” said Jett. “To be able to combine those two important aspects of my life in one project has been a wonderful experience.”
“Fallen Stars” will be available on demand (VOD) across all digital platforms beginning March 14.
