What happens when a washed-up twenty-something year old, the one-time hometown hero and track star, is convinced by a local sweetheart to run a marathon and get his life back on track? That is the set-up of a dramatic, and yet feel-good motion picture entitled Chasing Yesterday.
The movie is set for limited theatrical release on June 3rd in New York, followed by a digital release on June 10th on iTunes and Amazon, and it features three men very familiar to daytime drama audiences.
At the epicenter of Chasing Yesterday is Eric Nelsen, the former cast member of the online version of All My Children where he was a standout as AJ Chandler. Nelsen has also been appearing of late in Daytime Emmy Award-winning online series, The Bay.
In Chasing Yesterday, Nelsen plays Junior, former One Life to Live favorite David A. Gregory (Ex-Ford) plays Matthew, and former Daytime Emmy winner, David Tom (Ex-Billy, Y&R) plays Tobey. The film also stars Courtney Baxter and Steve Schirripa. The film is produced by: Joseph Pernice, Eric Nelsen, Sainty Nelsen, and Courtney Baxter.
Chasding Yesterday has already had a great run on the film festival circuit,where it played at the 2015 Newport Beach Film festival, took home Best Home Grown feature at 2015 Garden State FF, and the Rising Star Award at the 2015 Canada International FF.
