If you live in the area, you already know that Rumson is beautiful. That’s why it’s getting picked up to be the location for a new movie called #RUSH!

Denmark’s renowned Lars Von Trier began working with actress Siobhan Fallon Hogan in 1999 on Dancer in the Dark. The actress was nominated for the esteemed Danish Chlotrudis Award for her work as the prison guard in this film. Von Trier won the coveted Palme d’Or for the film at the Cannes Film Festival in 2000. The director cast the actress again in 2002 in his critically acclaimed Dogville. Fallon Hogan joined Von Trier once again in 2018 in The House That Jack Built, starring Matt Dillon. The actress attended the Cannes Film Festival with Von Trier, Dillon and Zentropa in 2018 for her work in the film.

Fallon Hogan has penned her first film, #RUSH, about a mother who seeks justice, then revenge, after the death of her son in a university frat hazing incident. She sent her script to Von Trier upon completion and within two days received a call from his producer, Marie Gade. The producer informed Fallon Hogan that Zentropa wanted to coproduce the film along with her company, Emerald Caz Productions. It was then that Fallon Hogan contacted Avy Kaufman to cast the film. Kaufman had cast Fallon Hogan in Dancer in the Dark twenty years earlier. Like Fallon Hogan, Kaufman has continued to work with Zentropa on Von Trier’s films. Danish director, Vibeke Muasya, is set to direct #RUSH. Muasya is well known for many films, most notably Kidnapped, which has received many awards for her direction and script.

#RUSH will be filmed in Rumson, N.J. this fall. The film will star Fallon Hogan, Robert Patrick, Maura Tierney, Jake Weary, Jay Jay Warren, Peter Hogan, Jr., Justin Linville, Ellen Cleghorne and Chance Kelly. In addition to Zentropa, Erin Fraser who Fallon Hogan worked with on SNL, will produce along with Peter Hogan, Sr., Patrick Clifton, Jo Haskin and Peter Hogan, Jr. American investors include Victoria and Justin Gmelich, Dan Mc Neil and Mary McNeil, Carol and Tom Fletcher, Lynne and Hugh Ward, Kevin and Jennifer O’Brien and Andrew Taffin.

Fallon Hogan is known for her work as an actress in many television and blockbuster films, such as Men in Black, Forrest Gump, Seinfeld, SNL, New in Town, Funny Games, Wayward Pines, and Going in Style. Fallon Hogan said, “I am honored that Von Trier’s Zentropa is coproducing and thrilled to have this fabulous cast. I look forward to filming in New Jersey and post production in beautiful Denmark.”
