Rascal Flatts member Jay DeMarcus is expanding his producing role to the big screen. He is set to join film producer Travis Cloyd and writer Gregg Russell later this year as they produce the coming of age adventure film, All Shook Up.
The movie follows two young boys as they search for a thermonuclear bomb buried in the marsh off the Georgia coast. Based on the actual 1958 event that occurred during the height of the Russian Cold War, a scrambled Air Force jet fighter collides with an American B-47 bomber resulting in a 7,600 pound bomb being dropped off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. The nuclear bomb remains unfound and "irretrievably lost" to this day.
Jay said, "I love the movie making business. I always enjoy the process, and I learn more and more every time I do a new project, it's another fun, creative outlet. This story pulled me in immediately: the timing was right, and things fell into place quickly. I am honored to be a part of this very special project!"
Guy Griffithe of Bridgegate Pictures is set to executive produce the project.
