‘Reach Me’ Trailer: A Self-Help Book Brings Everyone Together

Writer/director John Herzfeld’s (15 Minutes, The Death and Life of Bobby Z) upcoming ensemble drama Reach Me now has a trailer, which is already drawing comparison (not necessarily of the positive type) to Paul Haggis’ Oscar-winning La racial tensions drama Crash, for its ensemble cast and multiple overlapping character story threads. However, going by the initial footage, Herzfeld’s new project looks more like a mashup of multiple genre films, as opposed to a collection of individual plot lines that come together to form a cohesive whole.

Herzfeld’s Reach Me script, in a nutshell, centers around a group of people who are all linked together by their shared connection to a self-help book published by a mysterious, reclusive ex-professional football coach. The final section of the film’s trailer is dedicated to just listing off the many cast members; it’s quite the eclectic ...

Jae C. Hong/AP/Press Association Images

Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell (21-8) is not only one of the most instantly recognisable celebrities to have ever established themselves in the Ufc but is also a hall of famer and is still an employee of the company, utilising his business degree in his capacity as executive vice president of business development. To say that the actions of Chuck Liddell impact the Ufc would be an understatement. The Iceman is one of but a handful of fighters who have transcended the status of Mma fighters to break into the ranks of general celebrities alongside the likes of Ronda Rousey, Jon Jones and Anderson Silva. Even while he was still fighting, Chuck maintained a relatively active acting schedule with appearances in How High, The Death and Life of Bobby Z and Entourage (as himself).

Fund This Film: Sylvester Stallone Hits Kickstarter With Ensemble Drama ‘Reach Me’

Yes, Sylvester Stallone is the latest major celebrity to hit the crowdfunding circuit. But it’s not his own project; he just stars in the film. The real man behind the campaign is Sly’s old buddy John Herzfeld. These guys are a pair. They were roommates in college, made a short western film using live ammo, appeared together in Cannonball! and Cobra and finally got to work together again recently on The Expendables (Herzfeld helmed the making of feature included on the DVD and Blu-ray). Now they’re united again with Reach Me, an ensemble drama we’d been tracking the casting of last fall. It turns out one of the main investors backed out during filming and now the post-production financing needs to come from pledges via Kickstarter. Reach Me doesn’t look too bad, and it does have an impressive cast (at least in size and B-level status) consisting of Stallone, Kelsey

Investor Leaves Them $250,000 Short; John Herzfeld And Sly Stallone Hope Kickstarter Can Raise Finishing Funds For ‘Reach Me’

Investor Leaves Them $250,000 Short; John Herzfeld And Sly Stallone Hope Kickstarter Can Raise Finishing Funds For ‘Reach Me’
Exclusive: All summer we’ve debated the merits of Kickstarter as Zach Braff, Spike Lee and the makers of Veronica Mars successfully used the mechanism as a way to fill in funding gaps for movies they wanted to make. Well, here’s a new wrinkle: John Herzfeld, who wrote and directed 2 Days In The Valley, 15 Minutes and The Death And Life Of Bobby Z, was already shooting the ensemble film Reach Me when one of his backers fell out to the tune of $250,000. Rather than squash the movie, he, his star Sylvester Stallone and producer Cassian Elwes have made a pitch for the funds through Kickstarter. With a cast that includes Stallone, Lauren Cohan, Kelsey Grammer, Kyra Sedgwick, Nelly, Entourage‘s Kevin Connolly, True Blood‘s Ryan Kwanten, Thomas Jane, Tom Sizemore, Elizabeth Henstridge, Terry Crews and Danny Trejo, you wouldn’t imagine they would have any trouble finding the
