Independent production company Paramyth Films has announced that Ed O'Ross, Shannon Elizabeth, Annabella Sciorra, George Finn and Alessandra Torresani will star in the upcoming film, A Green Story. Written and directed by Paramyth's, Nika Agiashvili, A Green Story chronicles the life of Van Vlahakis, a Greek immigrant who arrived in America with only $22 in his pocket and eventually founded the multi-million dollar green company, Earth Friendly Products.
O'Ross stars as the modern day Vlahakis, who is misdiagnosed with cancer and given two months to live. During this time, he reflects on his early life as an immigrant during the 1950's (played by Finn) and ultimately decides to push himself to the limit by closing one final business deal that will concretize his company's success, even if he is not around to see it.
A Green Story begins production on November 3rd with principal photography taking place in Los Angeles, Chicago and Crete, Greece. Agiashvili will produce alongside John Edward Lee, Chadwick Struck and Deanna Plascencia.
