Shooting Our New Movie...

Son Dallas (who runs our film company, http://www.jenkins-entertainment.com/) and I are thrilled to announce the beginning of shooting on our next feature film, What If...?


The best way to characterize it is to call it a modern take on It's a Wonderful Life. We have signed three of the leads, and Dallas will direct, doing most of the shoot in Michigan.

Kevin Sorbo (Hercules) will play the lead.


John Ratzenberger (Cliff on Cheers) will play Mike the Angel. I was there when Dallas approached him about the part, and before John had even heard the character name or role, he said he had always wanted to play Michael the Archangel. Bizarre.

Kristy Swanson (the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is also on board.
Keep up with progress at the Jenkins Entertainment website.

So looking forward to your next endeavor, and the cast sounds very good. Did Jerry write the screenplay? Can you reveal where in Mich you'll be shooting?

Looking forward to the movie. Hubby loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer, so perhaps I can get him to watch it :)

Hi Jerry!

Very cool! Can't wait to see it!!! Looking forward to reading "Writing for the Soul" and I'm nearly finished Riven! The best spell of sleep deprivation I've ever had! Thanks! :)
