Red Five Entertainment Signs Dean Cain for Carrollton Film

Carrollton, GA (August 14, 2008) - Red Five Entertainment, the producers of the Carrollton-filmed supernatural thriller CONJURER, announced the signing of a deal with actor Dean Cain to star in its upcoming drama OUR CHILD IS MISSING. The film will begin a four-week shoot on September 23 in Carroll County.

“We are very excited to be working with Dean,” says executive producer Randy Simpkins. Best known for his role as Superman in the hit series LOIS & CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, Cain has also appeared in the television series LAS VEGAS, the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie CROSSROADS: A STORY OF FORGIVENESS, and THE PERFECT HUSBAND: THE LACI PETERSON STORY.

Emmy Award nominee Shay Bentley-Griffin coordinated the deal on behalf of Red Five through Cain’s representatives at the Paradigm talent agency in Los Angeles. An Atlanta-based casting director who served as associate producer on CONJURER, Bentley-Griffin is also a producer on OUR CHILD IS MISSING, and will oversee casting for the film.

OUR CHILD IS MISSING is a faith-based true story about a dramatic event that occurred in Carroll County in 2000 when the community turned out by the hundreds to search for a missing two year-old boy. The project is the second feature film produced by Red Five in Carroll County. Many crew members who worked on CONJURER last April will return for OUR CHILD IS MISSING, including director of photography Ken Blakey and line producer Day Permuy.

The film will be directed by Lance Dreesen from his screenplay, produced by Clint Hutchison, and executive produced by Randy Simpkins.

Red Five Entertainment was launched in 2001 by Lance Dreesen and Clint Hutchison to produce high-quality, commercially viable feature films. Red Five is a privately financed motion picture production company that partners with other capital sources including equity investors and distributors to develop and produce original story-driven feature films. In 2007, Carrollton businessman Randy Simpkins joined Red Five as Executive Producer, focusing on developing feature projects to be produced in West Georgia.
