Exclusive: Dream Recreational and Double G Motion Pictures have now cast a top-notch cast for their comedy-drama Out of place & Found in Cleveland, marking directorial debut by writer-directors Marisa Guterman and Keith Gerchak. Headlines of the film, currently in production in Cleveland, include Emmy and Golden Globe winner Martin Sheen (Grace and Frankie), Golden Globe nominee Dennis Haysbert (Away from Heaven</ em>), Academy Award nominee June Squibb (Nebraska), Golden Globe winner Stacy Keach (Nebraska), Independent Spirit Award winner Yvette Yates Redick (Inherent Vice) and Tony Award winner Santino Fontana (Broadway’s Tootsie).
A target-market adult drama that recently made a splash with Paramount’s 80 for Brady and fifth Season, Out of place & Found in Cleveland is billed as a new legend about the post-industrial American dream in the industrial Midwest – a depiction of everyday life over a 24-hour period following the personal odysseys of five very different characters, whose lives intertwine when the favorite television antique ratings show from the Americans comes to their city.
The supporting cast also includes three-time Emmy nominee Dot-Marie Jones (Bros), Emmy winner Loretta Devine (Queen Bees), Liza Weil ( How to Get Away with Murder), Esther Povitsky (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Tony Award nominee Rory O’Malley (The Book of Mormon em>), Independent Spirit Award nominee Jeff Hiller (Someone Somewhere), two-time Emmy nominees Jon Lovitz (SNL) and Mark L. Walberg ( Antiques Roadshow), Benjamin Steinhauser (Kids Baking Championship), Rob Mayes (John Dies at the End) and Vanessa Burghardt (Cha Cha Real Smooth).
The producers of the project are Dougle G’s Guterman and Gerchak, William K. Baker (My Friend Dahmer), Yvette Yates Redick (Day Shift) and Shaun Redick (Get Out, BlacKkKlansman). Broadway veterans Hunter Arnold (Dear Evan Hansen) and Kevin McCollum (Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story) are executive producers. Yvette Yates Redick and Shaun Redick’s Now not Possible Dream Entertainment will represent the distribution rights and produce the film along with an international sales partner.
“Wearing a palette of pastels, nostalgia, and hope, Out of place & Found in Cleveland is a portrait of Americana that can feel both familiar and magical to audiences,” Guterman told Deadline. “It’s a story that honors the small goals that are big for the everyday heroes who dare to believe.”
Gerchak adds, “We always say it’s like An Unusual Quest meets The Wizard of Oz.. The Wizard of Oz. was a allegory about the American Dream at the turn of the last century. If the Scarecrow represents farmers and the Tin Man represents factory workers, then each of our characters represents a slice of modern America. And instead of a heart or a brain, our heroes bring their belongings to our wizards, the appraisers… only to find that the road to self-confidence lies within.”
Guterman and Gerchak believe that Cleveland’s nostalgic and archival Americana quality, from the local flea markets to the Out of date Global market, adds a unique and special element to the film. The theme of hope is also prevalent, which is especially relevant in current times. The characters in the film, who come from different walks of life, navigate the world of televised antiques appraisal in the Rust Belt region of the United States, showcasing the contrast between academic elites and everyday Clevelanders striving to achieve their goals in the new American Dream.
It sounds like audiences will have a great emotional experience watching “Lost & Found in Cleveland.” According to Yvette Yates Redick, one of the film’s producers, “Marisa and Keith created a phenomenal story and movie, audiences will unquestionably be laughing and crying.”
