Echo Boomers, Omer H Paracha’s first feature film as an Executive Producer, is all set to hit the big screen on November 13. Omer H Paracha has the honour of being the youngest Executive Producer in Hollywood from Pakistan. He is also the owner and founder of Paraval, a leading street-wear inspired luxury label based exclusively in Los Angeles.
Echo Boomers follows a group of disillusioned twenty-somethings, who use Chicago as their playground by breaking into the homes of its richest citizens, and stealing from the rich. A recent college graduate Lance Zutterland leaves school in debt, realizing everything he had worked towards was built on a lie. When he is pulled into a criminal underground operation, he finds his peers fighting the system by stealing from the rich and giving to… themselves. With nothing to lose, they leave behind a trail of destruction but with the cops closing in, tensions mount and Lance soon discovers he is in over his head with no way out.
Echo Boomers is Seth Savoy’s directorial debut and stars Patrick Schwarzenegger, Alex Pettyfer, Hayley Law, Oliver Cooper, Academy Award nominee Lesley Ann Warren and two-time Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon.
Omer H Paracha said, “Working closely with the Director Seth Sevoy and Producer Mike Ware has taught me a lot. I definitely want to implement the knowledge I gained from them in future productions.”
“There is a huge market for multicultural films in Pakistan. I hope to create more opportunities for both sides to work closely together. It would be great to see Pakistan in a better light in this industry and I plan to make it happen. I believe that movies have a lot of influence on people. They provide a platform to highlight social and cultural issues. It’s important to produce something worthy that leaves a positive impact on the audience.” Paracha added.
Saban Films recently announced that they have acquired the film’s North America rights, and the president of the company, Bill Bromiley said, “We are thrilled to be working with Seth Savoy in his directorial debut. This is a wild tale brought to life by an all-star cast at their best. The film will keep audiences on their toes.”
