Indican Pictures has acquired Radio America, a heartfelt music-fueled drama that critics are already labeling the next Once (2006).
The feature film, starring Kristi Englemann, Jacob Motsinger, and Christopher Alice, hails from Shorris Film, the Hollywood-based prod co. owned by Clint Morris and Christopher Showerman.
“If Indican were the stage, and we were musicians, we couldn’t ask for a better stage to present our act. With their passion, knowledge, and skill, they are undoubtedly the right distributor to bring Radio America to the masses,” says Morris, whose credits include Complacent and Vitals.
A touching, music-fueled drama – rumored to have been inspired by events in the producers' lives - Radio America “reminds us what’s possible when passion and opportunity collide” (Cyrus Webb, Conversations Magazine).
Also starring Wayne Bastrup (Terminator: Genisys), Read MacGuirtose (Cruel Will), Tristan Price (The OC), Robert Ebinger (Days of Our Lives), and J.Kristopher (Straight Outta Compton), the Christopher Showerman-directed drama fixes on two wannabe musicians, stuck working on a farm, who hit the bigtime when one of their songs gets radio airplay.
"It’s akin to Once meets Rock Star," Showerman said in a recent interview. "The story follows a couple of farm boys who love music and happen to be at the right place at the right time. When they experience commercial success it changes how they relate to the music, each other and the world."
Eric (Jacob Motsinger) and Dave (Christopher Alice) are two farm boys who dream of escaping their rural roots to achieve fame and fortune as rock stars. As they grow up, their talent grows with them. However, the real impetus behind their momentum is their friend Jane (Kristi Englemann), who manages their musical career. She finally gets them in front of a major label A&R scout who sees the potential of the act.
Dave and Jane become romantically involved and this strains their friendship with Eric. When the A&R scout replaces Jane as the manager and puts the act before America, the pressure is almost too much for their friendship to handle.
Their first tour puts them on a roller coaster of euphoria and tragedy that mercilessly puts the value of friendship vs. commercial success back into perspective for the survivors.
Pic is produced by Morris, Showerman, Chris Durand, and Eliza Washabaugh.
The film will be distributed via Indican Pictures later this year.
