Hi Jeremy,

Yes, there hasn't been any news about Smitten! for a while.  I googled it and googled Barry Morrow (the director) and didn't find any more updated news.  I hope we hear some news about it early 2017.

From dailydarrennews:


mdunn.nyc: Getting too anxious waiting for the movie Smitten! to come out where I get to play this guy’s assistant!

March 03 2017





Darren's character (Tyler?) is supposed to be a shallow fashion exec, possibly a jerk-type.  I can see Darren, during breaks,  apologizing profusely to this young actor, for being so mean to her when he's in character. :amused
