Cameras will be rolling in March as the original stage musical PEARLY GATES becomes an independent feature film destined to showcase in 2015 film festival circuit. PEARLY GATES is the story of Dr Richard Whiner and his family as they struggle to accept an inevitable truth and the lessons it brings to them.

“In this independent production company, passion is the only motivator. We are here to tell a story from a place of authenticity, to accomplish our goal of making a beautiful movie,” says first-time director Scott Ehrlich. He wrote PEARLY GATES as a stage musical in 2011 which played to sold out houses in North Hollywood, Thousand Oaks, and Lancaster. Casting director Shannon Markhanian is attached, as well as Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Denis Maloney; both were intrigued by the independent nature of the film and Simon Peter Productions, LLC.There has been much interest in the film version and more cast and crew announcements will follow.

Composer Joshua Rich wrote the stirring and contemporary soundtrack for the stage show, and the songs will translate beautifully to film. Filming locations include Agoura Hills, Malibu and Lancaster, in the Los Angeles area. The film is the first for Simon Peter Productions and is scheduled for release in Early 2015. http://www.pearlygatesmusical.com
