The movie is written, directed and produced by Frank D'Angelo and he also plays the leading role alongside some of Hollywood's most notable actors including James Caan, Robert Loggia, Martin Landau, Paul Sorvino, Kris Kristofferson, Mira Sorvino, Michael Paré, Armand Assante, Eric Roberts, Margot Kidder, Daniel Baldwin, Laurier Fortier, Doris Roberts and Marc Blucas. The film is dedicated to the great Oscar nominated Robert Loggia and the Emmy Award-winning Doris Roberts, the last film both actors appeared in.
To top the weekend off, Frank D'Angelo's In Your Ear Productions Ltd. signed a 5-year worldwide distribution deal with 20th Century Fox Incendo Television for four of his films: Real Gangsters, Big Fat Stone, No Deposit and Sicilian Vampire. Three of those films were released theatrically in Canada and the USA and now there's talk of a soon-to-be-announced theatrical release for Red Maple Leaf. When asked about the new deal, Frank D'Angelo was elated, saying, "I am very happy and delighted that my films are receiving this kind of attention, because I know how difficult it is for filmmakers today, especially when 90% of the movies that are made never see the light of day".
Never a man to stand still, Frank just completed a new feature film script which will start shooting with a star studded cast this fall. As well, Frank has completed a new Christmas music album to be released shortly. It will be available on iTunes and http://frankdangelo.ca for the holiday season.
Frank D'Angelo is a screenwriter, director, actor, musician and Canadian talk show host. As a performer, he knew there was a big void in Canada for Canadians to promote their talents and so he created The Being Frank Show, a nationally broadcast late night talk/variety show. It has boasted guests and show business luminaries such as Al Pacino, Paul Newman, Tony Bennett, Graham Greene, Bill Fichtner, Kim Coates, Estella Warren, Bai Ling, Reggae Rapper Snow, Pavlo, Dan Hill, Ian Thomas, Murray McLauchlan, Missi Pyle, Kevin Hearn of The Barenaked Ladies and many, many more. The Being Frank Show will start taping its 7th season this fall.
