Sneak preview of a new film
With special guests, director Megan Griffiths, and writer/producer Emily Wachtel.We can’t tell you the title of this upcoming release, but we can say it features an inventive and hilarious performance by Thomas Haden Church. Come see this sneak preview in advance of its U.S. premiere and meet Thomas Haden Church, director Megan Griffiths, and writer/producer Emily Wachtel, who will engage in a post-film discussion withVariety and Culturemap film critic Joe Leydon.Raised in Laredo, Thomas Haden Church started his career in entertainment as a DJ in Brownsville, Texas. After moving back to California, his birthplace, to pursue acting full-time, he achieved television stardom as the dimwit mechanic Lowell Mather on Wings in 1990. That stardom allowed him to move back again to his favored state of Texas, where, this time, he proved that his rugged cowboy features (put to good use in Tombstone and Broken Trail) were more than just a look. He purchased the 2,000-acre Jake Short Ranch in Bandera County, and now runs four cattle ranches and a commercial beef operation in the vicinity.Church’s movie career had a second coming with his Academy Award-nominated and Independent Spirit-winning role as an aging playboy (not cowboy) in Sideways.Many roles in commercial and indie features have followed, but Church is about to draw major accolades again for his hilarious performance in the upcoming feature film we’re going to sneak preview.
