Johann Urb, from Resident Evil, 2012, and Californication, has been cast as Cole! We are so excited to see him in this role! To clear up any confusion - Antonio Cupo was originally announced for this role, but had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.
Also, tech scouting has begun! This morning, the crew is at Cole's house (the Kirkland Plantation) prepping for filming! It's all coming together! I'm so excited!!
Emma Rigby will be playing Summer! She is a gorgeous UK actress that perfectly embodies Summer's sweetness and sass.
Also, the PassionFlix team has landed in Georgia! Filming will start on March 13th, and we have an official release of September 2017!
Cole and Summer's roles have been cast, and we will be excited to announce those actors soon! In the meantime, Mindy Cohn will be in the movie, as well as a slew of other familiar faces! Filming has been moved to Augusta, Georgia due to weather issues in Mississippi. And unfortunately, Antonio Cupo will no longer be playing Cole, due to scheduling conflicts with our revised film date. Filming will start in the next month!
