Cam Gigandet Joins Anna Paquin in FREE RIDE

     October 12, 2011


Cam Gigandet is joining the cast of the indie drama Free Ride. Written and directed by Shana Sosin, the indie drama tells the true story of an abused single mother in the 1970s who moves her two daughters to Florida to make a new life for herself. Anna Paquin stars as the mother, and also has a hand behind the scenes as Free Ride marks the first production for her production company SCAMP. Variety reports that Gigandet will play Paquin’s love interest. The film also stars Drea De Matteo (The Sopranos), Liana Liberato (Tresspass), Ava Acres (Five), Jeff Hephner (Hellcats) and Paquin’s fellow True Blood alum Brit Morgan. Paquin is producing alongside Cerise Hallam Larkin, Susan Dynner, and her husband/True Blood star Stephen Moyer. Production is set to begin later this month in Sarasota, Florida. Paquin will go straight into Free Ride after filming Straight A’s with Ryan Phillippe.

    Great news for Gigandet, a much better actor than his previous roles suggest. He’s also appearing in this weekend’s Trespass, I’ll be supporting him.

      Thank you for supporting Cam “God” Gigandet. I am dying to see Cam in Trespass and 5 Star Day this Oct and Nov 2011.

    I am really happy to see Cam “God” Gigandet get this new role. His career seems to stall after Burlesque since he only has one movie (Trespass) since then. But it seems to be back on track with the releases of Trespass (Oct 2011) and 5 Star Day (Nov 2011), TNT’s Gateway, Point Break Remake (?), and now Free Ride.
    Ever since I stumbled upon him in Never Back Down, he has been the only actor that I watch, over and over. Every time I set eyes on him, I love him even more. There ever exists such a beautiful and charming man is beyond my imagination.
    Please have more video interviews of Cam.

    I was on set when Freeride was being filmed in Florida. Shana Sosin is an amazing sister, writer, producer and down to earth awesome person. I was thrilled to see the movie come together as I knew it. Shana couldn’t have asked for a better crew for this film. The stars were amazing. Shana has worked so hard to get were she is and Freeride is her greatest work yet. I am truly blessed for an amazing sister.
