Rebecca Chaney is producing along with Cassian Elwes, who had this to say about working with John Herzfeld.
"I've been dreaming about working on this project with John Herzfeld for 10 years, and this dream has finally come true. I couldn't be more honored to work with John and my producing partner, Rebecca Chaney."
Reach Me is an uplifting ensemble comedy/drama about a dozen fractured characters whose lives intertwine and eventually collide as a result of a self-published motivational book and its anonymous author.
Herzfeld won the Directors Guild of America Award and an Emmy nomination for his HBO film Don King: Only in America. The film was nominated for two Golden Globes, won the Critics Choice Award, the Writers Guild of America Award, and the coveted Peabody Award, the industry's most prestigious honor. Herzfeld's other feature credits include 2 Days In The Valley starring Charlize Theron, Jeff Daniels, Teri Hatcher, James Spader, and Eric Stoltz; and 15 Minutes starring Robert De Niro.

"Reach Me has been my passion project for 12 years - everything I have to say as a filmmaker and a man is packed in this story of redemption and hope, and I am lucky and thrilled to be working with a phenomenally talented cast that are realizing my dream."
Reach Me comes to theaters November 21st, 2014 and stars Lauren Cohan, Kyra Sedgwick, Thomas Jane, Kevin Connolly, Tom Sizemore, Nelly, Omari Hardwick, David O'Hara. The film is directed by John Herzfeld.
