Clutch Brings High Stakes Thrill Ride to Mogul Productions

From Charach Productions and Michael Merino, Clutch will look to honor no frills action flicks with this story of a rideshare driver who finds herself caught up in the problems of her passenger.


Unfortunately for Tonya (Sadie Katz), that passenger happens to be a mob hitman trying to outmaneuver his vengeful former boss and get out of Los Angeles alive.


Kaiwi Lyman plays Xavier, the hitman and passenger who will certainly be getting a 1-star rating after taking Tonya and himself on the ride of their lives in this gritty thriller that plunges audiences into the dark underbelly of Los Angeles.


“Los Angeles feels like living in a modern-day frontier town, combining industry, recent immigrants, old 

world money, cowboys, modern day bikers, and dreamers of every shape and size,” says Clutch Writer-Director Michael Merino. “A real-world ‘Star Wars 

cantina’ spread across the landscape filled with hamlets and villages touched by every culture throughout the world. Yet, at night, the ‘ghosts and goblins’ come out to play.”


With Mogul Productions Head of Film Development, Randy Charach, serving as the Executive Producer of Clutch, Mogul is eager for audiences to see a film produced by one of their own.


“It’s terrific to see Mogul partnering on this film,” said James Pratt, Mogul’s Head of Film Production. “Clutch features solid acting from Sadie and Kaiwi, and having Randy as executive producer working with director Michael Merino again will be a real treat for the audience.”


Currently in post-production, Clutch is slated for a release date sometime in the latter part of 2024. In the build up to release there will be a variety of ways for Mogul community members to come along for the ride while earning perks and unique opportunities as part of campaigns tied to Clutch.
