Shebib Going "Down The Road Again"

As Sneak Peek first reported December 2008, Union Pictures will now start production September 27 on "Down The Road Again", a feature sequel to Toronto director Don Shebib's 1970 Canadian classic "Goin' Down The Road".

The new film, written/directed by Shebib, will see the return of original cast members Doug McGrath, Jayne Eastwood and Cayle Chernin. Also starring are Kathleen Robertson, Anthony Lemke and Tedde Moore.

"...Set forty years after the original, 'Down The Road Again' begins as 'Pete McGraw' retires from his days as a Vancouver postal employee. With the news of the demise of his life-long buddy 'Joey', Pete finds himself the custodian of a series of letters, an envelope full of money and a plea from his late pal to head back east with his ashes with details of a special delivery along the way..."

"Down The Road Again" is produced by Robin Cass for executive producers Sandra Cunningham and Anna Stratton, with both Telefilm and the OMDC as financing partners.
