INSP Films Shores up Casting for “Christmas on the Coast”

(Indian Land, SC – March 28, 2017) INSP Films is finalizing casting of its newest film, Christmas on the Coast, a romantic drama currently being filmed in St. Simons, Brunswick and Darien, Georgia. The announcement was made by Gary Wheeler, Vice President of Original Movies at INSP Films.

In Christmas on the Coast, Drucinda “Dru” Cassadine is a best-selling romance novelist whose sales and fan base are on the decline. She is forced to head back to her hometown, the idyllic Harbor Pointe for Christmas to write “the novel of her life” by the end of the holiday season. However, she isn’t quite prepared for what awaits her when she gets there.

Cast in the leading role as Dru Cassadine is Julie Ann Emery (Better Call Saul, Fargo, Major Crimes). Brysen Flynn will be played by Burgess Jenkins (Remember The Titans, Nashville, Army Wives). Cait Pool (Sun Records, Vice Principals) is set to play Brysen’s daughter, Peyton. The movie is slated to feature veteran actors Bonnie Bedelia (Parenthood, Die Hard, The Division) as Ellie Cassadine and Clarence Gilyard Jr. (Walker, Texas Ranger, Matlock, Top Gun) as Fletcher Reese.

“This is a warm, family-friendly, holiday romance with a great cast. Christmas on the Coast offers the viewer a story of hope, escape, and reconciliation. The movie reminds us to take stock of those things in life that are truly important, and to let go of what isn’t,” said Wheeler. “Most of this movie was captured on Georgia’s beautiful southern coast so we wanted to feature the stunning scenic views for this charming story. The cinematography is amazing and the authentic coastal southern textures beautifully sets the stage. This heartwarming tale is a great complement to our consistently growing library of family-friendly films; and it is sure to resonate with audiences long after the movie has ended.”

Christmas on the Coast is produced by INSP Films and will be distributed by Imagicomm Entertainment. The movie is scheduled for release in September 2017.
