HOLLYWOOD, Calif., February 6, 2018 – Vision Films and Fluffy Cat Productions are proud to announce the release of the charming romantic comedy, For the Love of George. Directed by Maria Burton and written by Nadia Jordan and Hayley Nolan, this film is released right in time for Valentineâ€™s Day and is the perfect reminder that happiness is not dependent on finding the perfect man…even if that man is George Clooney!
Starring Nadia Jordan (Beyond Therapy, Cold Empty Hearts), Rex Lee (Entourage, Young & Hungry), Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction, The Whole Nine Yards), Tate Donavon (Argo, The O.C.), Kristen Johnston (3rd Rock From The Sun, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me), Ruth Connell (Supernatural, Hara Kiri), Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: First Contact, Star Trek: Generations), Shaun Sipos (The Vampire Diaries, Krypton), Ben Gleib (Ice Age: Continental Drift, The Book of Life), Paul Provenza (Northern Exposure, The West Wing) and Henry Hereford (Legends of Tomorrow, X-Men: First Class), For The Love of George has made an impact on the festival circuit receiving several nominations and awards, including the coveted Audience Choice Award at the Chicago Comedy Film Festival.
The film will have its exclusive red carpet screening prior to release on Monday, Feb. 12 at the Chinese Theater in Hollywood at 7:30 p.m. Cast and crew including Nadia Jordan, Ruth Connell, Marina Sirtis, Ben Gleib, Paul Provenza, Henry Hereford and Rex Lee will be in attendance.
The inspiration to write the screenplay came after reading Don Cheadle and John PrendergastÍ›s book 'Not on Our Watch', which suggests readers get creative with ways in which to spread the charity's mission. I wanted to make something fun and lighthearted yet would still raise awareness for the charity.
Star, Writer 'For The Love Of George'
For the Love of George will be available Feb. 13 on Digital for an SRP $4.99 – $9.99 Rent or Buy across all platforms and to Buy on DVD for $14.95.
Set in 2014, Poppy Wakefieldâ€™s (Nadia Jordan) life is shattered when she finds out her husband Stephen (Henry Hereford) is having an affair. When she receives a well-timed invitation to visit her friend Justin (Rex Lee) in Los Angeles, she takes off on a quest hoping to cross paths with who she believes is the perfect man â€“ George Clooney! Through a series of close encounters with Clooney, funny adventures and the odd emotional breakdown, Poppy learns to navigate her future without needing a man â€“ no matter how seemingly perfect!
â€œAs well as paying tribute to the ever charming Mr. Clooney, the story has a female empowerment theme which is both timely and relevant given the strength women are showing across the world right now,â€� said the star of the film and producer Nadia Jordan, who co-wrote the screenplay with Hayley Nolan. â€œAnd with the current gender equality discussions that are taking place in the entertainment industry, it was important to me to enlist as many talented women as I could, both in front of and behind the camera.â€�
Jordan credits the unique indie rom-com feature as being inspired by George Clooney and his humanitarian work. â€œThe inspiration to write the screenplay came after reading Don Cheadle and John PrendergastÍ›s book â€œNot on Our Watchâ€�, which suggests readers get creative with ways in which to spread the charityâ€™s mission. I wanted to make something fun and lighthearted yet would still raise awareness for the charityâ€�.
Because of this inspiration, a portion of the proceeds generated by For The Love of George will also be donated to the George Clooney supported non-profit the Enough Project EnoughProject
â€œFor the Love of George is a charming film that is a must see this Valentineâ€™s Dayâ€�, says Vision Films CEO Lise Romanoff. â€œIt reminds us that it is often the journey that matters, not the end result. Poppyâ€™s journey of self-discovering is entertaining, often hilarious and relatable!â€�
