Love Chronicles (of the Cape) to Film in Cape Girardeau, MO This Weekend

PRESS RELEASE

Circa 87, the company behind the Illinois and Missouri-filmed indies Belleville and Expect Delays announces its next movie Love Chronicles (of the Cape). Writer/Director Dan Steadman recently relocated from Los Angeles, CA, to the state of Missouri to continue what he calls “a creative resurgence of filmmaking in the Midwest.” Steadman’s film Belleville was shot in Belleville, Illinois, and went on to play in thirteen Wehrenberg Theatres throughout four states – Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota. “I grew up in Michigan and I love making films with my Midwestern creative collaborators. There is so much talent just hiding under the … well … ice and snow … in this part of the country!” Steadman says, with a laugh.

Residents of Cape Girardeau auditioned for Steadman’s next film at the Wehrenberg Theater in town. Former Cape resident and actor/producer Keith Nussbaum was impressed by the talent in his hometown. “We had over a hundred auditions … all types – a wrestler, an American Idol contestant, a roller derby player, and a quadriplegic race car driver. Many of them were funny and it was a pleasure for me and my fellow actor Bill Conklin to put them at ease,” says Nussbaum, adding, “There were so many inspiring stories that I don’t know how Dan will be able to choose from such remarkable talent.”

Love Chronicles (of the Cape) will feature dozens of local actors playing a zany cast of characters. The movie is described as Love, Actually meets Waiting for Guffman. Its fauxdocumentary style is familiar to Dan Steadman, who co-wrote and executive produced the film Jesus People, which co-starred Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer, Bridesmaids star Wendi McLendon-Covey, and Austin Powers actress Mindy Sterling. The indie will shoot one day in De Soto and two days in Cape Girardeau – January 9th through 11th. Many local businesses and landmarks will be featured in this community-affirming comedy film. Local eateries are providing meals for the crew of ten. “The best part of shooting in Cape is the cooperation from the community thus far,” says Steadman. “This final week of pre-production, we’re still looking for local extras for a crowd scene, locations for meals, and a few more filming locations. I can’t wait to bring this fun story to life.”
