Danny Trejo’s latest project is headed to theaters in October…
Millennium Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to John Herzfeld’s dramedy Reach Me, which features the 70-year-old Mexican American actor as part of the all-star ensemble cast.
The film centers on a group of strangers whose lives collide as a result of a self-published motivational book by a reclusive author in hiding (portrayed by Tom Berenger). When the book’s positive message goes viral a tabloid journalist (Kevin Connolly), his editor (Sylveter Stallone), an arsonist ex-con (Kyra Sedgwick), a gunfighter cop (Thomas Jane), an alcoholic priest (Danny Aiello) and a dimwitted gangster all plow into each other and irrevocably impact each other’s lives. Trejo portrays Vic in the film.
Herzfeld wrote the script for the film, which was long in the works and was crowd-funded for finishing funds (initially on Kickstarter, before switching to Indiegogo).
Reach Me will be released in select cities and then be released via video on demand on October 24th.
It also stars Lauren Cohan, Nelly, Omari Hardwick, David O’Hara, Ryan Kwanten, Tom Sizemore, Elizabeth Henstridge and Kelsey Grammer.
“John Herzfeld has crafted an inspirational ensemble piece featuring Sylvester Stallone in a moving return to drama,” said Millennium’s Bill Lee.
“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.”
