Remember the Van Zandt promo photography that was supposed to take place back in early November 2006? Well its back, and it’s going to happen! Fifth Floor is going full throttle with Van Zandt everything. Fifth Floor Pictures has a message for Dallas, Texas, and it is “Get ready, your movie is coming!” Excitement has been building over recent months with the addition of Drew Waters to cast back in May 2006 and with the recent talks of even bigger names filling some of the remaining roles. Actor Drew Waters will be doing a radio spot in the Port Arthur/Beaumont, TX area this week where there may be some talk of the Van Zandt project. Also on the horizon, actor, and Fifth Floor VP, Brandon Craig will be working to set up a TV spot for Waters, in the same region of the state, primarily to focus on the Van Zandt project.
Production on Leaving Town was successful last night, which marked the final takes for actor Eric Madrid and actress Sonja Lynn who are now wrapped on the project. So far, the production has wrapped four actors. With foul weather on the way, Fifth Floor will not return to the set until next week, when producers Christopher Compton and Chad Myers say the project looks to wrap production. Even with the delays in the past, Leaving Town is still slated for a Spring 2007 release, and a possible Dallas premiere as soon as February. “We are at about 80% done with filming with what we’ve been able to do over the past couple of weeks, especially Friday and yesterday,” adds producer/director Christopher Compton. Last night also marked the return of producer/director Chad Myers to the set. “Everyone was really glad to see Chad [Myers], and I know he was really glad to be back,” said Christopher Compton.
