LaLa Land was a snapshot of a girl hoping to get a shot at stardom: “an actress pursues her Hollywood dreams for a few years.”
Whiskey will be the movie: getting her shot took three decades; a woman ages gracefully as she survives 25 years of Hollywood sexism, heartbreak and loss. But judgment day comes shockingly in an epic climax as WHISKEY finally gets her shot.
In perfect harmony with the zeitgeist, like Tarantino’s instaclassic, Whiskey mixes and matches real events and fiction. Auto- biopic vignettes of Leo DiCaprio, Matt Damon and Jared Leto create period piece slices of mid 90’s Hollywood, which lead up to
a present day industry insider story.
Whiskey will go down as the perfect chaser to these film masterpieces.
It's been 24 years at this writing (July 2019) since Matt Damon suggested to CeCe the idea of writing an autobiopic about her life as a struggling actress in Hollywood.
Yeah, the movie could have been made years ago but perhaps, like a good Scotch Whiskey, it needed to age a bit.
CECE CHRISTIAN (L, pictured above with Renee Zelwegger) is a writer, producer and Meisner trained SAG actress who has worked in a wide variety of capacities in Hollywood.
She is a top professional hand model, most recently for Google, APPLE and Hewlett-Packard.

ChristianVistaStudios, birthed in 2010 is set to option with agreement to produce, WHISKEY in 2020.
Christian Mark Christian‘s vision, -to make mainstream Oscar winning films from a faith friendly foundation like Walt Disney’s original Powerhouse Studio is on track with the latest news about this dynamic film project.
Like Disney, Christian began as a talented sketch artist. Mostly uncredited, he worked on almost 200 Hollywood film, TV and commercial productions, working for Clint Eastwood, Sam Mendes, Cameron Crowe, Christopher Nolan And numerous other greats.
Christian comes from a long line of Hollywood film professionals, starting with his grandfather who was a studio lighting technician at Warner Bros. during the silent film era. Christian‘s Uncle Jim Bissel worked for top Hollywood stunt flyers Paul Mantz and Frank Tallman, finally ending up as Walt Disney’s private pilot until Disney passed. It is this childhood inspiration/connection that in part, motivates Christian‘s desire to re-birth what has grown into the most successful entertainment venture of all time.
