Foursome Boards Shackleton’s Street


Vivica A. Fox and Rachel Miner will star and Laura Ramsey and Toby Hemingway are in final talks to star in York Shackleton’s Street, the true story of a 16-year-old runaway, from producer Insomnia Media Group.

Fox will portray a woman who helps and mentors Lexi (Ramsey), a girl with a troubled mother, a convict father and a caring sister (Miner). After running away with a boyfriend who ends up abusing her, she finds shelter and love with a drug-addicted street kid (Hemingway) who teaches her how to survive in a tough Portland, Ore., neighborhood.

Jeff Bowler, Bret Saxon and Ari Palitz are producing Street for Insomnia. Shackleton’s Auteur Entertainment is co-producing; Shackleton wrote the script, which is based on the life of co-producer Kristen Jensen. Luke Goss (Hellboy 2: The Golden Army) is executive producing.
