Sebastian Gutierrez has finished his latest, Girl Walks Into a Bar, which ended up with a cast that includes Josh Hartnett, Carla Gugino, Zachary Quinto, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, Kevin Zegers and others. That the film's being revealed after it finished production usually means they shot it on the sneak from the unions, but then again, how much budget could they have at their disposal for a film specifically made for web and not theatrical distribution?

"There’s another cool movie, Girl Walks Into a Bar, that Sebastian Guttierez also wrote and directed that’s going to be the first feature film ever made for the internet, ever actually launched on the internet. It came about because a couple producers ended up seeing Elektra Luxx and saying, “Can you do that for the internet? Kind of an episodic nature of things.” It’s got Zach Quinto, myself, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson and Josh Hartnett, just a bunch of really great people in it. Just as you were talking about Elektra Luxx, it made me think of that because it’s something that’s really exciting right now."

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Shangri-La Entertainment announced today that it has completed production on "Girl Walks Into a Bar," a feature-length film that follows a series of characters in interlocking stories taking place in ten different bars during the course of one evening in Los Angeles. By turns funny and heartbreaking, this sharp-witted comedy is written and directed by Sebastian Gutierrez ("Women in Trouble," "Elektra Luxx") and is produced by Steve Bing ("The Polar Express," "Shine A Light"), Richard Rosenblatt and Gutierrez. The film will be the first major motion picture created exclusively for Web distribution.

The film's cast of characters includes gangsters, exotic dancers and con-artists played by an ensemble, all-star cast including Carla Gugino ("Watchmen"), Zachary Quinto ("Star Trek"), Danny DeVito ("Get Shorty"), Josh Hartnett ("30 Days Of Night"), Rosario Dawson ("Grindhouse"), Emmanuelle Chriqui ("Entourage"), Aaron Tveit ("Ghost Town"), Academy Award® nominee Robert Forster ("Jackie Brown"), Amber Valletta ("Hitch"), Gil Bellows ("Flash Forward"), Kevin Zegers ("Gossip Girl"), Alexis Bledel ("Gilmore Girls"), Michelle Ryan ("Bionic Woman") and Xander Berkeley ("Nikita").

"We want to prove that Web distribution is a viable medium for theatrical quality movies which rely on story, characters and dialogue as opposed to special effects," said Sebastian Gutierrez. "For many reasons the theatrical indie landscape has changed drastically in the last few years, leaving many potential breakout hits without an audience. We are excited to break the rules of feature films by letting people watch our movie for free online."

"Girl Walks Into a Bar" connects a group of apparent strangers over one night across 10 bars throughout Los Angeles. Zachary Quinto stars as a dentist who teams up with a feisty would-be assassin (Carla Gugino) to put the final touches on the plan to kill his wife. Once he makes a play for the assassin's payment, he unknowingly sets off a chain of events that fuels a cross-town journey through the many lounges, bars, strip clubs and the occasional nudist ping pong club scattered across Los Angeles. Along the way, we are introduced to a series of idiosyncratic characters, from gangsters (Danny DeVito) to exotic dancers (Emmanuelle Chriqui, Alexis Bledel), from ex-cons (Robert Forster) to cops (Josh Hartnett, Gil Bellows), with the odd hatcheck girl (Rosario Dawson) and bartender (Amber Valletta) thrown in for good measure.

"Girl Walks Into a Bar" is co-produced by Shangri-La Entertainment's Zach Schwartz. The film's director of photography is Cale Finot and is edited by Lisa Bromwell A.C.E. The film's music is by Grant Lee Phillips.
