The trailer for Katie‘s new film “I Love Us” is out now, watch it here below.
Vision Film has acquired rights to I Love Us, a romantic drama from Danny A. Abeckaser’s 2B Films. Abeckaser stars with Jackie Cruz, Katie Cassidy, Harlow Jane, David James Elliott, Robert Davi, Jasper Polish, Greg Finley, James Madio, David James Elliott, Elya Baskin, and Courtney Lopez in the ensemble, which wrapped production at the end of March after a shoot in Los Angeles. It will get a 10-city theatrical run along with VOD in September.
In the script by Kosta Kondilopoulos, a seasoned thief (Abeckaser) trades in his criminal ways for a “normal” married life after falling in love with a single mother (Cassidy) that catches him off guard. But when tragedy strikes, he’s forced to take one last job to pay off old debts and keep his new family together, creating conflict all around him.
Abeckaser (directing credits: Mob Town, Blackjack: The Jackie Ryan Story, First We Take Brooklyn) also produced with Wild7Films’ Kyle Stefanski and Mike Hermosa, and Above the Clouds’ Jeff Hoffman. Executive producers are Katie Cassidy, Ron Rofe, Isaac Gindi, Eddie Gindi, and Gustavo Nascimento.
“I Love Us was such a passion project and a labor of love. I felt the movie deserved to be with a company that really believes and loves the movie as I do. Lisa Romanoff at Vision was the right person for this journey for me as director along with producers Kyle Stefanski, Mike Hermosa, and Jeff Hoffman. We are excited for people to see it.”
Katie Cassidy, Harlow Jane, Jasper Polish, Robert Davi, and Orange Is the New Black actress Jackie Cruz has boarded the romantic crime drama I Love Us, the fourth directorial outing for The Irishman star Danny A. Abeckaser, in which he also stars.
Jane and Polish will play daughters of veteran thief Sammy Silver (Abeckaser), while Cassidy will play their mother.
I Love Us, written by Kosta Kondilopoulos, sees Silver struggle to trade his criminal ways for married life after he falls in love with a single mother. The ensemble cast includes James Madio, Greg Finley, Courtney Lopez, and David James Elliot.
