AMediaVision Projects has announced a slate of films led by the recently completed drama Reach For Me starring Seymour Cassel and Alfre Woodard.

Cassel stars as a hospice patient who reflects on his decision to live out his life in peace as his roommate chooses to celebrate his dying days. Johnny Whitworth and Lacey Chabert also star and LeVar Burton directed.

AMediaVision Projects has also optioned the rights to Gifts From Eykis based on Dr Wayne Dyer's bestseller about an alien and a lovelorn professor who try to unlock the humankind's limitless powers.

The third film, made-for-TV Taken In Broad Daylight stars James Van Der Beek and Sara Canning and is based on the true story of a kidnapped girl who survives a six-day ordeal before negotiating her own release.

Upcoming projects include the dramas Ramp Rats about drug smuggling luggage handlers, the illegal immigrant tale Coyote Crossing and Internment, about the Japanese internment camps that sprung up in the US at the end of the second world war.

'In a short amount of time, we've finished several quality, commercially viable films with reasonable budgets, making our investors happy and putting AMV's trajectory of growth on the right path,' AMediaVision Projects CEO and president Charlene Blaine-Schulenburg said.

'We've forged solid relationships with Manitoba Film and Music as well as with the Super Channel in Canada in creating financing opportunities for our upcoming films. We're also in the process of forming a strategic partnership with Echo Bridge Entertainment for domestic and international sales and distribution.'
