Ensemble features Sylvester Stallone and Kyra Sedgwick,
Millennium Entertainment has acquired all US rights to John Herzfeld’s drama Reach Me featuring an all-star ensemble lead by Sylvester Stallone, Kyra Sedgwick, Kevin Connelly, Terry Crews, Thomas Jane, Danny Aiello, and Tom Berenger.
Written and Directed by Herzfeld, Reach Me was produced by Rebekah Chaney, Cassian Elwes, Buddy Patrick, and John Herzfeld. The film will be released in select US cities and on demand on October 24.
The film tells the story of a group of diverse strangers whose lives cross and collide as a result of a self-published motivational book by a reclusive author in hiding (Berenger).
When the book’s positive message goes viral a tabloid journalist (Connolly), his powerful editor (Stallone), an arsonist ex-con (Sedgwick), a gunfighter cop (Jane), an alcoholic priest (Aiello) and a dimwitted gangster all plow into each other and irrevocably impact each other’s lives.
The cast also includes stars Lauren Cohan, Nelly, Omari Hardwick, David O’Hara, Ryan Kwanten, Tom Sizemore, Elizabeth Henstridge, Danny Trejo, and Kelsey Grammer.
“I’ve wanted to bring Reach Me to the screen for over a decade,” said Herzfeld. “To have the opportunity to create the film with such a tremendously talented cast is a filmmaker’s dream.”
“I’m very proud to be part of this new film that has provided the best dramatic part I’ve had in years,” said Stallone.
Millennium Entertainment’s Tristen Tuckfield negotiated the deal with Cassian Elwes on behalf of the filmmakers.
Red Granite International’s, Danny Dimbort and Christian Mercuri, are handling international sales on the film at the Cannes market this year.
