Bellocchi who's acted in the past said he's been waiting for something like this that he can sink his teeth into. "This film is my passion project. If I wasn't playing the lead role, I wouldn't even make this film", he said. "I know this character inside and out and am going to bring the most realistic version of him to the screen. This film is going to evoke emotion much like the film, "The Whale" did. When you're done watching you're going to realize that you've just been through an emotional experience. I've never been so excited about a film before. This is the one that opens the doors", Bellocchi says.
Bellocchi teams back up with executive producers, Paul J Faust known for his role as "Cool Guy Paul" on the hit TV show, The Office and Edward Lake, a successful Florida attorney and entrepreneur. Also returning is Bellocchi's longtime producing partner, Jessica Gilstrap.
