In this indie crime drama, Willis plays crime lord Mel, who sends a team of three strippers to make one of his deals. The girls spend much of the movie driving around town and shooting. They encounter a murderer on the way, played by Forest Whitaker. First time director Aaron Harvey says:
Catch .44 was set up and financed completely outside of the studio system. Even though there were some big actors and a great crew that came from the studio world, the film itself was actually a relatively small independent film that was privately financed by several investors that the producers had brought to the table.
