John Thomas (David Chokachi, Baywatch) is faced with his daughter Lisa’s (Marialisa Caruso, who contributed writing to the movie) mounting medical bills and issues at home with his wife (Yancy Butler, Witchblade). That leads him to be part of his father-in-law’s plan to smuggle jewels across the U.S./Mexico border. Things go wrong and he’s left for dead. Can he find his way back to life?
We featured the trailer for Emerald Run a few weeks ago. Now, we have had the chance to watch the movie.
This movie was produced by Anthony Caruso, who also served as the executive story editor. His career started with acting, moved into real estate and then he found his way to reality TV. This is the first film he’s produced and this was directed by Eric Etebari, who played Ian Nottingham on Witchblade opposite Butler.
The cast is packed with people you’ll recognize. There’s Steven Williams, who hunted down Jason in Jason Goes to Hell as Creighton Duke. John Schneider from TV’s Dukes of Hazzard. Chris Mulkey, who has been in everything from Whiplash to Cloverfield. And perhaps most exciting for readers of this site, Michael Pare from Streets of Fire and Vernon Wells, who is one of the best movie villains ever.
Emerald Run will be in a hundred U.S. theaters as of February 21. You can learn more about the film and where it’s playing at the official Facebook page.
