"We look forward to meeting Kentucky film makers at the Louisville Film Festival, as co-star Frank Molina and Director Michael Masucci will be in attendance to answer any questions about AMERICAN SUNSET or Corey Haim." Gary Rasmussen and Eric Leffler are the Executive Producers of the Corey Haim film AMERICAN SUNSET.
Dan Sherkow, COO of Global Universal Entertainment continued: "Members of our production team, plus Corey Haim's co-star,Frank Molina, will be in attendance at The Louisville International Film Festival, which provides grants to help fund educational efforts focused on training film makers of tomorrow in Metro Louisville and the commonwealth of Kentucky."
AMERICAN SUNSET was directed by Michael Masucci in New Brunswick, Canada, and also co-stars Bernie Robichaud of TRAILER PARK BOYS fame. Corey Haim and Frank Molina play two unlikely characters who would have never met except through the unfortunate kidnapping of Haim's wife, played by Angela Cullins. Haim has 24 hours to find his wife, with the assistance of Molina's character. Corey Haim was just beginning to promote the film, when he contracted pneumonia and suddenly died. Global Universal had so many fans begging to see the film that it decided to offer a DVD of the film directly to Haim's fans through a special Global website, as no distribution plans have yet been made out of respect for Haim's untimely death.
