Johnny Depp, Laura Dern, J.K. Simmons, Richard Chamberlain, David Lynch, and Penelope Ann Miller helped make one seriously ill film fan’s dream come true. Anthony Conti is a 16-year-old boy who suffers from Stage 4 adrenal cortical cancer who dreamed of making a Hollywood film. The actors, working with directors Sam Raimi (Spider-Man), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), and Ted Melfi (Hidden Figures), created the short film The Black Ghiandola, which Conti co-wrote with Scott Kosar (Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and additional writing by Wash Westmoreland (Still Alice).
Two-time Oscar nominee Laura Dern is starring in two of this year’s hottest properties: the upcoming reboot of Twin Peaks and the highly-anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
