Guideposts Books has announced that production is underway on a new film based on Serena B. Miller’s Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Ohio (Summerside Press). Mission Pictures International began filming in September in the town of Sugarcreek.
Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Ohio stars Sarah Lancaster (TV series Chuck) and Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do, Parental Guidance).
"We are thrilled that Up TV has chosen Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Ohio to make into a movie," said Lenore Lelah Person, vice president and editorial director of Guideposts Books and Inspirational Media. "With Serena's wonderful story and a beautiful backdrop in Ohio Amish country, fans of the story and the series will enjoy seeing it on screen. For those who are not familiar with the ‘Love Finds You’ series, this will be a great opportunity to introduce them to these uplifting and engaging romances."
Love Finds You in Sugarcreek, Ohio is one of more than 50 releases in the "Love Finds You" series published by Guideposts Books under its Summerside Press imprint. The series is titled after actual American towns with unusual names, and includes historical and contemporary releases.
Mission Pictures has purchased the movie rights to the entire series and plans to produce additional films based on the series in the future.
Miller has a cameo appearance in the film and is blogging about the experience at www.serenabmiller.com.
"Getting to watch my book, Love Finds You In Sugarcreek, Ohio, being turned into a movie has been one of the most exciting things I've ever experienced,” she said. “The script writer did an amazing job of focusing on the heart and message of my story and Mission Pictures International chose amazing actors. It was wonderful getting to watch professionals bring to life characters who had previously only existed in my imagination! After stumbling through the cameo role they gave me, I have an even greater respect for what true actors make look effortless."
The movie is anticipated to premiere in spring 2014 on Up TV (formerly the Gospel Music Channel). The release date of the DVD is yet to be determined.
