Toronto -- The death of actor David Carradine has forced a recast of what was to be his next project, the indie drama "Portland," on the eve of principal photography in Portland, Los Angeles and along the Pacific coast.

"Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time," executive producers Adrian Salpeter and Elizabeth Levine of Vancouver-based Random Bench Productions said in a statement.

Carradine was to co-star in the feature about the death of a young wanderer that connects a trio of damaged souls. The ensemble cast includes Erin Daniels, Jonathan Caouette ("Tarnation"), Steven Martini, Renee Victor and Alex Schemmer.

The project from writer/director Matthew Mishory will go ahead, with Iconoclastic Features and Random Bench Productions co-producing the U.S./U.K./Canada feature. »
