Vandervort Entertainment announces the cast for new feature film Limelight, including Jonathan Lipnicki (Jerry Maguire), Jenna Jameson (Private Parts) and Rachel True (Half & Half).

June 11th, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA - Production begins this week for Limelight, a beautifully gritty drama about fame, obsession, and vanity in Hollywood. The film follows small-town, social media obsessed narcissist Miles Chance (Paul Vandervort) and his journey to Hollywood in pursuit of fame.

The film is directed by up-and-comer James Cullen Bressack, who has already completed 10 feature films at the age of 23. His last two projects were a pilot with Eli Roth and a film starring Shannen Doherty and Tom Green. His film Pernicious goes to limited theatrical and VOD beginning June 19th.

In addition to writing the screenplay for Limelight, Paul Vandervort (Hollywood Miles) is both producing and acting in the project. Vandervort says of the film, “My goal with Limelight is to take the classic ‘small-town kid goes to big city’ scenario, but dig deeper to comment on the narcissism of Hollywood behind the scenes to tell a story that we really haven’t seen yet. To help with this, we are using a handful of actors against their normal ‘type,’ like Jenna Jameson in a serious, non-sexual role.”

The cast also includes: Timmy Deters (Bad News Bears), Sean Kanan (The Karate Kid, Part III) Mike C. Manning, (Disney’s Cloud 9), Teri Andrez (Sorority Row), David Chokachi (Baywatch), Dante Basco (Hook), Erin Sanders (Zoey 101), Bruce Vilanch (Get Bruce), Jason Brooks (Star Trek), Kirsten Nelson (Psych), Eddie Steeples (My Name Is Earl), Ciara Hanna (Power Rangers Megaforce), Najarra Townsend (Contracted), and Ryan Ahern (Argo).
