She developed her taste for film at a young age, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out her 7 films for 7 days for $7. Bargain! While at school she created a Film Club, electing herself President. Eventually the School Principal asked her not to get up in assembly to talk about movies anymore.

Richard Jenkins, good in the Farrelly Bros’ movies like “Hall Pass” and “There’s Something About Mary” and amazing in “The Visitor”, is doing a new drama with one of the “Twilight” alums.

Jenkins and Cameron Bright (“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”) have joined the cast of Charles-Olivier Michaud’s latest drama “One Square Mile”. Written by scribes Josh Campbell and Jeff Van Wie, the film will be produced by Howard Burd and Micah Sparks of Phoenix Rising Motion Pictures, and Deborah Moore of Inner Primary Entertainment. Martin Harmon is executive producing for Phoenix Rising Motion Pictures. International sales are being handled by Lawrence Meyers, Bobby Meyers and Peter Rowley of Meyers Media Group. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in August with Seattle, Washington as a possible location.

“One Square Mile” is a highly charged, emotional story of a disenfranchised teen (Bright) living on the wrong side of the tracks. Desperate for a way out, his life collides with an old reclusive track coach (Jenkins), angry at the world with no purpose in life. The two form a reluctant bond that forces them to face their circumstances as they race to save each other and ultimately – themselves.

“We felt the writers always had Richard in mind when we were developing the script, and we couldn’t be happier now that he is on board,” said Burd. “Having Cameron Bright play opposite Richard is a strong acting combination that will produce a compelling and inspirational film that people will want to watch over and over again.”
