Matchmaker Mary

Matchmaker Mary, the story of a 12-year old who orchestrates a romance between 2 lonely people, recently finished shooting in Kansas City. The directoro, Tom Whitus, has also directed a docuementary, More than Puppy Love, and several Kansas City based thrillers, including Threat of Exposure with Sean Young, and Silence, starring Bruce Boxleitner(Captain Sheridan!!!).

This new films stars Jeff Fahey of Lost and Dee Wallace of E.T.: The Extraterrestrial. The film will be distributed by Pure Flix, who also distribued INSERT FILM TITLE HERE. Whitus said that Pure Flix initially wanted to change the script to reflect the religious themes the company is known for, but after reading it they decided to keep it exactly as it was, a good sign, for both the company and the script.

This sounds like a family-friendly romance that has the usual themes of older single-people, a cute kid, and a late-life romance. Might be all right. No word on when it will be released.
