Indie Romantic ‘Bro-comedy’ Selected to Screen at the 2011 Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival
LOS ANGELES, March 10, 2011
LOS ANGELES, March 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — HEAD OVER SPURS IN LOVE has been selected to screen at the Los Angeles Women’s International Film Festival on March 26th. This delightful romantic comedy stars the next “it” boys of Hollywood, Daniel Bonjour, South African native heartthrob and Jesse Johnson, the handsome and talented son of Don Johnson and Patti D’Arbanville.
Daniel Bonjour began his acting career in Johannesburg landing his first starring role in the action adventure, Dragon Quest, and more recently starring in the new wave cult classic, Midnight Movie. Daniel’s evident talent and striking good looks have attracted various filmmakers including Bryan Singer for My Eleventh.
Jesse Johnson grew up surrounded by Hollywood veterans. His career started with guest roles on his father’s hit show Nash Bridges; from there he graduated to feature film roles in Redline and the Australian indie Prey. His California good looks and charming appeal have groomed him for a successful career. He can next be seen in the Spanish film, Para que sirve un oso? opposite Geraldine Chaplin, granddaughter of Charlie Chaplin.
“We’re thrilled to be programmed at the LAWIFF,” states Ana Zins, director of HEAD OVER SPURS IN LOVE, who knew the difficulties of getting programmed and attracting industry attention with her indie romantic comedy. “I knew commercial-mainstream indie romantic comedies have a tougher time getting programmed into film festivals, but I was determined to stay true to my sensibilities as a filmmaker. I also knew casting relative unknowns in the lead roles was a risk when it came time to take the film out into the market place. But with this extraordinarily appealing talent and their amazing chemistry, I’m confident my decision has paid off.”
The story revolves around the premise that asks the question, “What if… the girl who got away… the love of your life… came back into your grasp just before your wedding to the girl you’ve just settled for?”
The film also stars the beautiful Leena Huff (Cougar Town and Life), the adorable Jen Lilly (Castle and Criminal Minds), and the hilarious Hal Ozsan (90210), also starring Richard Riehle (Office Space) and Richard Karn (Home Improvement).
Zins produced the film under her Mighty Girl Productions banner with co-producer E. Colleen Saro. Zins also wrote the film with writing partner Sheryl P. Umayam.
HEAD OVER SPURS IN LOVE, which is currently seeking distribution, will have a VIP premiere and red carpet on Thursday March 24th, where distributors, press and media are invited.
