Nashville, TN (October 10, 2019)
Actress Bailee Madison is set to star in a new inspirational movie titled A Week Away, produced by Steve Barnett, Gabriel Vasquez, and Alan Powell. A Week Away is in the principal photography stage now and is scheduled for nationwide theatrical release in 2020.
A Week Away stars Bailee Madison (Hallmark’s The Good Witch, Bridge to Terabithia), Kevin Quinn (Disney’s Bunk’d, Adventures in Babysitting), Sherri Shepherd (Brian Banks, Ride Along 2) and David Koechner (Anchorman, The Goldbergs). Newcomers Jahbril Cook, Kat Conner Sterling and Iain Tucker are featured in starring roles.
The story centers on Will Hawkins (Quinn), a troubled teenager whose recent run-in with the law puts him at an important crossroads; go to juvenile hall or attend a Christian summer camp. At first a fish-out-of-water, Will eventually opens his heart and discovers a love and sense of belonging in the last place he expected to find it.
The film’s overall message of acceptance and forgiveness is blended with compassion and humor, set against contemporary music and dynamic choreographed numbers. A Week Away is being directed by award winning music and commercial filmmaker Roman White. A Week Away is being filmed on location at the YMCA‘s Camp Widjiwagan in Nashville, Tennessee and will include reimagined cast recordings of Christian music songs by artists such as Amy Grant, for King and Country, Michael W. Smith and Steven Curtis Chapman.
