Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 12, 2010
Pathlight Entertainment LLC has attached Renée O'Connor ("Xena: Warrior Princess," "Fitful," "Bogeyman II") in the role of Maurene Wells in its upcoming family drama, "Beyond the Farthest Star," set for a Christmas 2010 release.
The feature, produced by Benjamin Dane and Sally Helppie, is directed by its writer, Andrew Librizzi.
When chance brings the national spotlight to his last church in a forgotten Texas town, Pastor Wells has an opportunity to regain his former glory or seize one last chance to restore his fractured family.
"Beyond the Farthest Star" is an American Beauty meets Frank Capra-esque story of betrayal, forgiveness and redemption. Adam Wells, a minister driven by the prospect of achieving greatness as the next nationally-syndicated TV Evangelist, lays down his opportunity at "celebrity" and his own life in order to become something greater, A loving husband and father to his wife and daughter.
"We are delighted Renée has joined 'Beyond,' said Librizzi, "Her ability to make emotionally complex characters both accessible and sympathetic to audiences will be essential in her portrayal of Maurene Wells, a character isolated by a secret. When exposed, it turns the story upside-down."
"Beyond the Farthest Star" brings O'Connor back to her home state as filming begins the first of March in locations throughout North Texas. Represented by Grant Management, O'Connor is also a filmmaker, producing and directing "Words Unspoken" and "Diamonds and Guns."
