In “Reach,” Bernsen and Tomei, are the grandparents of “Clarence,” the new kid in town, played by Johnny James Fiore, who also co-wrote the script with Maria Capp and Grant Harling. “Reach” is currently filming in Los Angeles.

“I’ve always considered myself to be an advocate for arts in education. “Reach” has become the ultimate collaboration in providing educational and professional opportunities for both emerging and established artists. I feel blessed and am grateful to be surrounded by family, friends, and the consummate talent of Corbin and Concetta, as well as the brilliant young composer and actor, Rio Mangini,” said Maria Capp, Producer.

Mangini, the son of Oscar-winning sound designer Mark Mangini (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), a classical pianist who performed twice at Carnegie Hall at age 9, will have cameo in the film and will compose the score and perform original music in the film.

In “Reach” a socially awkward genius, Steven Turano (Garrett Clayton), divulges to a pro-suicide support group that he plans to kill himself. Although his first attempt is botched, he is determined to find a way to escape his suffering. He is constantly picked-on by former childhood friend and school bully, Nick Perkins (Jordan Doww), and his widowed father, for whom he harbors a deep resentment for over his mother’s death. However, when Clarence (Johnny James Fiore), the new quirky kid in school, befriends him, Steven’s plans are sidetracked and he begins to REACH out beyond his comfort zone to form stronger relationships with his father, friends (Joey Bragg, Steven Capp, Rio Mangini) and teachers.

As previously announced, the film also stars Garrett Clayton (“Hairspray Live!), Jordan Doww (“Hollyweird”), Joey Bragg (Disney’s “Liv and Maddie”), Bojesse Christopher, Kevin Sizemore, Johnny James Fiore, Raffaela Capp, Steven Thomas Capp, Grant Harling, Natasha Capp, Brent Tarnol, Michelle Danner, and Chelsea Cook.

Autumn Bailey and Charles Box are producing “Reach,” along with Capp, with Casting by Dea Vise, CSA (“God’s Not Dead 2”, and “Do You Believe?”), and score by Rio Mangini.

“Reach” is a window into the private lives of both bullies and their targets, and shows how the power of one small gesture can change the course of someone’s life. “Reach” was awarded Best Feature Screenplay in The Hollywood & Vine Film Festival in 2015.
