Premise of "HOLLYWOOD NORTH" revolves around 'Bobby Meyers' (Matthew "Full Metal Jacket" Modine) as a young entertainment lawyer with a successful firm, that secures the film rights to Canadian novel "Lantern Moon", a young girl's coming of age story set in the Maritime province of Prince Edward Island.

Bobby's investors demand a Hollywood 'name' star to top-line the film. 'Michael Bates' (Alan Bates) is cast with a provision allowing him to re-write his character.

But the rewrite comes with a bizarre price as the 'Avonlea' type "Lantern Moon" inexplicably morphs into the exploitation actioner "Flight To Bogota", featuring gun-toting super-patriots, facing off against heavily-armed Columbian rebels.

During the 4-week film shoot (with SNEAK PEEK's Michael Stevens cast as the 'Bogota Sound Man') everything that could go wrong ...does.

An actor performing a stunt is injured; a camera team headed by blonde Debra "Crash" Unger (who Bobby has the hots for) films a behind-the-scenes "Making Of..." style documentary, while stealing equipment and raw stock to shoot THEIR low-budget film; the beloved older director (John Neville) thinks 'Kurosawa' is a type of motorcycle; the leading lady (Jennifer Tilley) is having an affair; while Bobby desperately tries controlling the utterly mad Bates, who eventually spirals into his own personal movie, complete with lucid hallucinations and paranoia.

When the film finally crashes in on itself, Bobby has nowhere to turn, facing lawsuits and a slew of angry investors.

He has one glimmer of hope... and it is in the eyes and the work of the woman he is falling for ...
