’40 Nights’ Cast Returns to ‘CHASE THE STAR’

Michigan based production company Collective Development and distributor Lightworx Entertainment are collaborating on a three-picture film deal. The deal made with actor/writer/producer DJ Perry was to pen and produce three biblical-era films.  The first film “40 Nights” is about the quest of Jesus to overcome temptation and prepare himself for his journey ahead.  Directed by Jesse Low, the film is now in final post undergoing music scoring and VFX work.  The film will enjoy some theatrical events before a worldwide release in April 2016.

The second film in the QUEST trilogy is entitled “Chasing the Star” and focuses upon the quest of the magi seeking the Messiah child.  After weeks of interviews with directors around the country - Collective Development is announcing Bret Miller, a Michigan native, as the director of their second film. His previous feature “Some Are Born” is being released in 2016 with Adler and Associates Entertainment.

“Mr. Miller had the right vision that fit perfectly with what we wanted to do with the “Chasing the Star” script. Being a fellow Michigan State University grad was just another bonus. – DJ Perry, producer

The three films intertwine with one another and therefore will have some of the original characters returning. Legendary actor Rance Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Nebraska) is returning along with Taymour Ghazi (Dean Teaster’s Ghost Town), Shane Hagedorn (Ashes of Eden) and Melissa Anschutz (Bestseller). Casting has been on going for months and additional cast will be announced in the coming weeks.
