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 Cains 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.
