Seraphim Films Productions, in conjunction with Paradox Entertainment, announced today that they are producing Reach Me, which is on its third week of filming under the sunny skies of Los Angeles, California. John Herzfeld (2 Days In The Valley, 15 Minutes) wrote and is directing the film. The cast includes Tom Berenger, Kevin Connolly, Thomas Jane, Sylvester Stallone, Kyra Sedgwick, Kelsey Grammer, Nelly, Danny Aiello, Terry Crews, David O'Hara, Omari Hardwick, Lauren Cohan, Elizabeth Henstridge, Cary Elwes, and Ryan Kwanten.
Rebecca Chaney is producing along with Cassian Elwes, who had this to say about working with John Herzfeld.
"I've been dreaming about working on this project with John Herzfeld for 10 years, and this dream has finally come true. I couldn't be more honored to work with John and my producing partner, Rebecca Chaney."
Reach Me is an uplifting ensemble comedy/drama about a dozen fractured characters whose lives intertwine and eventually collide as a result of a self-published motivational book and its anonymous author.
Herzfeld won the Directors Guild of America Award and an Emmy nomination for his HBO film Don King: Only in America. The film was nominated for two Golden Globes, won the Critics Choice Award, the Writers Guild of America Award, and the coveted Peabody Award, the industry's most prestigious honor. Herzfeld's other feature credits include 2 Days In The Valley starring Charlize Theron, Jeff Daniels, Teri Hatcher, James Spader, and Eric Stoltz; and 15 Minutes starring Robert De Niro. Here's what Herzfeld had to say about this story.
"Reach Me has been my passion project for 12 years - everything I have to say as a filmmaker and a man is packed in this story of redemption and hope, and I am lucky and thrilled to be working with a phenomenally talented cast that are realizing my dream."
