Doug Spearman, best known for his role as Chance on Logo’s groundbreaking series Noah’s Arc, is now wearing many hats as director, writer and producer of his own feature films, the first of which, Hot Guys With Guns, made a big splash on the festival circuit this year and has been picked up for distribution by Wolfe Releasing.
The film, a gay comedy-action thriller (and a contemporary homage to 1940’s film noir), is a distinctly “L.A movie,” in which local color and personalities are front and center. Upon the film’s screening at Outfest in Los Angeles, Spearman thought he’d either come out of the theater as a hero or the guy being chased by pitchforks.
Based on the reception to Hot Guys, it appears the pitchforks have been safely stowed away.
His next feature film project is Welcome, Sinners. “It’s An Affair To Remember. The forbidden love story and the choices you have to make,” he says.
Welcome, Sinners has started shooting on location in Philadelphia, where Spearman is joined by frequent collaborator and Noah’s Arc co-star Darryl Stephens. “Darryl’s the first person I give a script to,” Spearman proudly states. “He’s going to carry this movie in a way that he’s never carried a movie before. It’s going to be very interesting.
