Pachango Films is casting Gangsta Bitches, a comedic short flim, chronicling the violent saga of 3 older mafia queens, who are planning a hostile takeover of rival NY crime families. These three old friends don’t let the fact that they’re deep in their 70s deter them from participating in drive-bys, robberies, drug dealing and a host of other criminal activities. The film has the mood of a 70s Blaxploitation film and while it is a very dark comedy, these ladies are ruthless and completely serious.
