Agoura Hills, CA (PressExposure) May 19, 2009 -- MLC PR announced today that actress Olivia Dawn York will be seen co-starring as âDarlaâ in the thriller crime film ELSEWHERE alongside Anna Kendrick (Twilight), Paul Wesley (Army Wives), and Tania Raymonde (Lost.) The film revolves around two girls, Sarah (Kendrick) and Jillian (Raymonde) who are longing to break free of their small town lives. When Jillian decides to act on her desires by looking for someone to rescue her on the internet, she suddenly disappears, leaving Sarah with only a journal and a cryptic video message sent from her cell phone. As Sarah turns to people of the town including Darla (York) to help her in search of the truth, she discovers the town would rather forget Jillian had ever existed, than expose the townâs corrupt police, and the string of unsolved child abductions. The final truth they unearth will rock the town to its foundations.
York shares, âI think the most exciting moment in shooting ELSEWHERE besides landing the role, was when I learned my characterâs father was going to be played by Jon Gries. Even though he is known for so many great projects, I was a NAPOLEON DYNAMITE fanatic! When I found out I would be working with âUncle Ricoâ it was the first day on location in Indiana, and I had to call my dad and sister to tell them who I was working with! The whole thing was a great experience.â
ELSEWHERE was written and directed by Nathan Hope, and produced by Teresa Zales, Elaine Ehrlich and Vince Palomino. It will be released on DVD nationwide on June 2, 2009.
