)-- Producers have announced that the filming on location in Jupiter has begun for the new family drama, “All That You Can’t Leave Behind.” A variety of locations throughout Palm Beach and Broward Counties, will serve in later phases of the production.
Writer/Director William A. Butland has assembled a talented cast and equally versatile crew. “I am so thrilled to have been able to find such talent in Palm Beach County,” stated Butland, “that is just one of the many pluses of filmmaking in this area.” Producer C.Todd Vittum agrees, “We were also fortunate to have the assistance of The Burt Reynolds Institute for Film and Theatre, they opened their hearts to us, allowed us to hold the casting at their facility, and as a result, many of their students were cast in the film.” Executive Producer Julie Schelhorn added, “We are fortunate to have such talent, and it really starts with William, he has drawn them all into this project”
Richard Sosa has been cast as successful attorney and workaholic, Russell Anderson. “William has written a wonderful, touching script,” Sosa said in a recent interview, “and I am looking forward to being directed by him as well.” Butland agrees, “I am so thrilled to be able to work with Richard again.” The two were seen onscreen in the comedy “The MisAdventures of Wallace Weaver.” Sosa, whose role of “Guillermo” in the comedy drew great notices, is thrilled to be returning to his dramatic roots,“This is not only a good script, it also has a great message for all families in these current trying times.”
Palm Beach Gardens resident Amy Hoerler has been cast in the pivotal role of Lourdes. Hoerler, a member of Burt Reynolds’ Master Acting Class is well suited for the role, “Amy just made the role hers at the audition,” writer/director Butland said in a recent interview. Hoerler’s character Lourdes provides an unexpected plot twist that will affect the lives of her employer, attorney Russell Anderson, and his family. While Hoerler is a veteran of a number of off Broadway stage productions, this is her first leading role in a feature film.
Kelly Halluch, Christie and Carlie Schelhorn play the Anderson children, with Vincent Chimato, Shirley Gil, and Cheri Burr in featured roles. “I am really having a great time with the words William has written,” said Marlena Martino who, as Russell’s wife Kate rounds out the talented cast.
