Feature Film Project

“Destiny Epic” (Working Title)  

This film is based on an incredible true story. A shy man, a square peg in the round hole of the outrageous old west of the Gold Era is faced with a choice that not only flips his destiny, but the destiny of an entire state. The story wings though adventures, romance, and some lighthearted comedy.

We have completed the script rewrite and now move to preproduction. The Producer has created over 36 documentaries.

This unique story has events that seem unbelievable, yet they were achieved by the main character through intense struggle and great commitment. The story takes place in California, in the old west, involving a transplanted European. These two aspects will help greatly with foreign distribution because of the western and the European influences. With foreign sales contributing significantly to box office gross, and the adventure portion of the story appealing to ever growing Asian markets, there is a great potential for profit upon release.

Reel Mountain Pictures feels we can attract a superb actor to play this challenging and character driven lead. While the lead is male and young (starts at 26) an actor like Meryl Streep has mentioned on 60 Minutes how she would gladly accept a role in an independent feature exactly because it is the type of role she is looking for to add her already significant repertoire.

We are going to do everything to make this film extremely successful with the help of a committed and very competent team in production, casting, marketing and all important distribution. We invite you to join us in creating a film about a very unique character that bloomed into legend.
