Summary

“West End” is an exciting drama set in New Jersey, following a family that blends the normal Jersey neighborhood with a mafia/crime power structure – all the while holding to the blood is thicker than water creed. The film is the last to be shot on the shoreline that no longer exists due to Hurricane Sandy. Directed by Joseph Basile and starring Eric Roberts, Peter Onorati and Isabella Hofmann, the film is currently in post-production in Los Angeles. It is looking for songs to add to the movie's soundtrack. Artists can submit up to 3 songs for consideration.


The artists / songwriters would receive applicable performance royalties and may receive box office bonus sync fees as well as applicable film credit, based on the usage in the film. Writers must be registered with a performance rights organization (ex. ASCAP, BMI, SESAC) to receive performance royalties. This listing is for a "Direct Placement." Selected artists will work directly with decision makers for possible inclusion in the film.


The film needs the songs and artists ‘in the style of’ the following:


  1. New Jersey style Rock – ala Southside Johnny’s “Trapped Again”, early Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, etc.

  2. 1970’s/1980’s sounding rock – from rock to groove, retro sounding cool

  3. Italian or Opera – from Jerry Vale to Al Martino to Luis Prima

  4. Standards/Big Band – ala Frank Sinatra’s “Your Town”

  5. New Jersey Artists – seeking artists and bands that are from New Jersey or play the New Jersey circuit.



Plot summary:

“West End” is an exciting drama set in New Jersey, following a family that blends the normal Jersey neighborhood with a mafia/crime power structure – all the while holding to the blood is thicker than water creed. We follow young Vic Trevi who comes home to find out who killed his father, and works his way back into the family fold run by his uncle and old best friend. The straight-laced lawyer Vic, actually an undercover FBI agent, fights his emotions of family versus the law, right versus wrong, revenge and redemption – and he needs to find out the truth about his family before they find out the truth about him.
