Brandon T. Jackson and Jamie Chung have joined Abbie Cornish and Jack Huston in a new feature drama called ‘I’m Beginning To See The Light.’
The film follows a grief-stricken jazz trumpeter named Ezra (Huston) who’s searching for purpose and salvation after the sudden, tragic death of his wife and daughter. When he’s mistaken for the new lighthouse keeper, Ezra meets a local schoolteacher named Hannah (Cornish), who reignites his passion for life and imbues it with meaning through ethereal music.
Chung will play Sarah, the wife of Ezra and mother of their 10-year-old daughter. She loves Ezra but is angry at him for the time and energy he pours into a career that no longer supports them. Jackson will play Sam, a bass guitarist who’s struggling to recover from being replaced in his band and losing his girlfriend. Broke and lonely, he befriends Ezra, and a friendship grows between the two musicians.
Russian filmmaker Konstantin Khudyakov is directing based on a script by Mark Bacci, who also serves as one of the executive producers. Production is set to begin this spring. Pavel Khudyakov of Calabasas Media is producing, with Rich Mento handling casting.
