Vince Duvall - Current News

SUMMER 2018  - Duvall has focused on features this year with three in the last five months. Darkest Roads, a crime thriller with Duvall as the seasoned veteran detective who is saddled with an unstable rookie. Each with their own dark pasts. The Harbinger, a paranormal thriller, shot in Minnesota with Duvall as a detective saddled with the Devil. And Mary for Mayor, shot Virginia, a light-hearted and heartfelt family dramedy with Duvall as the mayor of a small town whose daughter turns 18 and decides to run against him. Duvall worked with Corbin Bernsen on Mary for Mayor and is currently working on a production deal for Corbin’s script Ho Ho Ho,  a psychological horror / thriller also to be shot in Minnesota. Additionally Duvall has worked on several national commercials this year including Mercedes which he is shooting in August.

DWF - 2018 - June 8 - June 17 at the Chinese Theater - This year marked the 21st anniversary of the Dances with Films Festival that Duvall helps produce every year in Hollywood at the famous Chinese Theater. He is very proud to be a part of the defiantly independent festival  that Leslee Scallon and Michael Trent founded in 1998. He has worked with the festival for the last 15 years. With a wide variety of features, docs, shorts and now new episodic content, this was the best year yet.  You can find information about the festival at

WRITING - In the meantime he is very busy writing for a Hollywood studio system that clearly is in need of fresh content. His scripts include a sports script about the rise of the free agent, a high concept, character driven  action/crime story set in Venice, CA, an international terrorist story where the perpetrators are the very corporations that run international banking and impose their esoteric agenda on an anesthetized, wide eyed public. A bi-racial courtship story, loosely based on His Girl Friday and a dystopian love story set in the not so distant LA.  While he has sold a few, you can generally  find most of his scripts underneath the giant agency packages that inundate studio execs.
