Elevating Entertainment Motion Pictures has completed production of their newest feature film SEASON OF MIRACLES, starring John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard, October Baby, Smallville), Grayson Russell (Talladega Nights, Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Nancy Stafford (Matlock, Baywatch) and the story’s writer/actor Rusty Whitener (from the hit TV series Nashville).
SEASON OF MIRACLES is set in the 1970s and is a uniquely compelling drama about a group of twelve year olds and a championship little league baseball season, that is not so much about winning and losing – as it is about living and dying. Author Rusty Whitener’s screenplay won the Kairos Prize presented by Movieguide and the Templeton Foundation. His novel which the movie is based, won the Gold Medalist in Foreword Review’s “Book of the Year” religious fiction category and two Christy Award nominations in 2011.
“We’ve been so honored to have such an amazing cast join us in bringing this fabulous story to life,” says director/producer Dave Moody. “John (Schneider) was fabulous and really spent time with our kids on and off the set playing baseball which really added to the reality of the team spirit on screen. Grayson (Russell) had the challenge of portraying the important autistic kid character in the story and his performance is truly inspiring. Rusty is not only a great writer but a wonderful actor as well, and he brings tremendous depth to the mystifying character of Mr. Forrester.”
The original motion picture soundtrack will be released by Lamon Records Nashville. Watch for more updates on this film… coming soon!
