Hell has a new exit and by the looks of it, Jersey is about to get even hotter!
“The Jersey Devil” is a new indie comedy about a new devil taking reign over the underworld and his attempt to revamp its image. After an extensive search, he decides that relocating to Jersey City, New Jersey was the perfect move for his “makeover.”
HipNJ’s Peter Falzo visited the set of the new movie and sat down with director and co-writer, Joseph Pepitone, and others involved with the film to get the low-down on this “new hell.”
The new devil comes to Jersey City with the mindset of making hell “cool, sexy, and edgy”, and this idea represents how Jersey City is in the midst of its own rebirth. The city welcomed the opportunity to host the film’s production, and the cast and crew were able to shoot on-location in JC’s prime landmarks: City Hall, New Jersey City University, and The Landmark Lowes Jersey Theatre, where our interview took place.
The film’s Garden State pride extends to its talented actors. Clifton native Keith Collins, also known as “The New Devil”, said it the best: “Jersey is my home and home is where the heart is. So what place is better to shoot a film about Jersey than Jersey itself?”
