VISION FILMS, a worldwide distributor of independent feature films, documentaries and music programming, has announced today that they have picked up international sales rights to THE IDENTICAL, the musical drama directed by Dustin Marcellino and starring Blake Rayne, Erin Cotrell (Love’s Long Journey), Amanda Crew (Crazy Kind of Love), Brian Geraghty (HBO’s Boardwalk Empire), Seth Green (Dads), Ashley Judd (Olympus Has Fallen), Joe Pantoliano (The Matrix) and Ray Liotta (GoodFellas). THE IDENTICAL was written by Howard Klausner, who also produced alongside Matt Russell, Joe McDougall, Coke Sams and Clio Tegel. Vision Films represents the film both internationally and domestically, and will have a special screening Friday, November 8th at the Ocean Screening Room in Santa Monica at 3:00pm.
Identical twin brothers (both played by Blake Rayne) are separated at birth during the Great Depression. Their parents (Brian Geraghty, Amanda Crew) just cannot afford to give them both a life beyond poverty, so one is adopted by loving family. Despite their very different upbringings, the boys’ shared passion for music causes their lives to unknowingly intersect as they experience a powerful and mysterious connection often felt by twins.
CEO Lise Romanoff comments:
The Identical is the complete package. Ray Liotta delivers one of the finest performances I have ever seen and Blake Rayne’s voice is on par with the legends of the era.
Yochanan Marcellino comments:
The Identical is a family film for the ages. The uplifting story and music will warm your heart.
The film features over 20 original songs in three volumes from the 50s, 60s and 70s with the soundtrack written and produced by Jerry Marcellino (producer of Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, The Supremes, Lionel Richie) and Yochanan Marcellino. With Jerry, Yochanan, Dustin and Jordan Marcellino, the film involved three generations of veterans of the entertainment industry.
