Exclusive South Florida Red Carpet Premiere of “The Lookalike”Posted on: October 29th, 2014 by Miriam Cronkhite
In true Hard Rock style, the exclusive South Florida red carpet premiere of “The Lookalike” at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino was a fun event full of interesting guests and congenial celebrities. The movie found the audience sitting on the edge of their seat during this action-packed movie driven by the twisting storyline, ideal casting and unpredictable romantic outcomes.
“We’re extremely excited to give South Florida a sneak-peak at “The Lookalike” before it hits theaters and digital HD in just three weeks,” said James M. Wahlberg, Executive Producer. “With such a stellar cast and crew, many of whom call South Florida home, we couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate the film’s opening than with a fun-filled, star-studded evening here at home, at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.”
The dark comedy crime-romance features an all-star cast that includes Justin Long, John Corbett, Gillian Jacobs, Jerry O’Connell, Gina Gershon, Scottie Thompson and Luis Guzmán. “The Lookalike” is directed by Richard Gray (Mine Games) who is currently in post-production on the thriller Sugar Montain starring Jason Momoa, and is working alongside Mario Kassar on a new adaption of the world famous novel Audition.
Drug lord William Spinks has a curious obsession with Sadie Hill, and uses family friends Bobby and Frank (John Corbett and Jerry O’Connell) to get to her. But when Sadie’s death jeopardizes a major deal, Bobby and Frank set out to find a replacement – a lookalike – to fool Spinks. The dubious plan propels an ex-basketball champion, a deaf beauty (Scottie Thompson), an addict (Justin Long), and an aspiring actress (Gillian Jacobs) into an unlikely romance and a desperate quest to start over.
