News came this week announcing two principle actors hired on the Let It Go film project. If you're not familiar with this, friends of mine are making a feature film based on the book of the same name. The story is centered on the life experiences of Chris Williams. It's a story of redemption, tragedy and forgiveness.
And I can't wait to see the finished product!
Those involved in the film have been posting on social media sights have excited they've become of late, especially with the casting. With so much local talent, it somewhat surprised me they had opened their search in both L.A. and New York.
Looks like they're off to a great start!
Here's news from the website:
:: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ::The story and script has attracted talent far and wide. The producers have cast Harry Ian Cusick from the hit television series LOST, and The 100 to play the lead role as Chris Williams. In addition, the team welcomes Academy Award Nominee Brenda Vacrro. Many other supporting cast have been selected from a rich talent pool inside and outside of Utah.
The film is set to begin production in Salt Lake City, Utah in June of 2014.
The compelling true story was covered nationally and touched many lives because of Chris’ decision to forgive the under aged drunk driver who tragically killed his pregnant wife, son, and only daughter in a terrible automobile crash in 2007.
Writers/Directors C.S. Clark and Patrick Henry Parker, the principals of Propel Pictures, learned about the amazing story shortly after it occurred in 2007 and approached Chris Williams about producing a documentary about his eventual triumph over tragedy. The response to Chris’s story and the documentary was remarkable. The team decided to develop a feature length production about Chris’s incredible journey from tragedy to healing.
