When Hurricane Sandy halted production of Cold Comes The Night, which was being filmed in East Durham in Greene County, upstate New York, Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston did something very cool. He told the film’s production assistants to each give him a script, and if he liked their story, he would star in the project. Production assistant Brandon Polanco’s script won Cranston’s impromptu contest, and just three hours later, filming for Writer’s Block began. “Fellow production assistants Chaz Rose & Spenser Granese jumped on board to help co-star and co-produce the film,” Polanco said on Vimeo.
