Faye Dunaway, Harvey Keitel & Andrew McCarthy To Star In Jonathan Baker’s ‘Fate’

EXCLUSIVE: Faye Dunaway (Bonnie & Clyde), Harvey Keitel (Bugsy) and Andrew McCarthy (The Blacklist) have signed on to star in Fate, a suspenseful, supernatural romance that will launch international sales via Highland Film Group at Cannes.

Set to enter production in Vancouver this month, the film’s plot is under wraps, though its key location, the fictional Vista hotel, is said to draw inspiration from the iconic Los Angeles movie theater of the same name, which filmmaker Quentin Tarantino refurbished in 2022. Jonathan Baker is directing and producing the project, which has been in development for five years, and tells Deadline, “there is an excellent chance it will stand as one of the most memorable love stories of our time.”

Seen in cinema classics like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Bugsy, Keitel can currently be seen starring in the series The Tattooist of Auschwitz, which premiered on Peacock earlier this month.

Best known for roles in films like Pretty in Pink and Weekend at Bernie’s, McCarthy has more recently been seen on and directed episodes of series like The Blacklist and Good Girls.
