The star-studded Hoovey red carpet premiere of EchoLight Studio’s world-premier film took place January 24th at Bel Air Presbyterian Church, which was once the home church of President Ronald Reagan, and still is for many Hollywood personalities including Leonardo DiCaprio, who attends when he can.
From the director and producers of Soul Surfer, Hoovey shares the inspirational story based on real-life events of Eric “Hoovey” Elliott, son of retired firefighter, Jeff Elliott and is an inspirational film based on the real life story of how one family overcame the darkest of times.
According to a news release from A. Larry Ross Communications, Hoovey was the winner of the 2014 Best Feature Film at L.A. Sunscreen Film Festival and awarded 5 out of 5 Doves from the Dove Foundation for Family Movies.
Stars of Hoovey in attendance at the premiere included Patrick Warburton (Emperor’s New Groove, Men in Black II) who depicts Jeff Elliott, Hoovey’s father; Charlie Robinson (Night Court, Beowulf), who portrays the basketball coach; and Cody Linley (Hannah Montana) who stars as “Hoovey”.
Hoovey starring Patrick Warburton, Lauren Holly, Cody Linley and Alyson Stoner, is the true and inspiring story of the Elliott family, who refused to surrender, instead turning to one another and their faith in the worst of circumstances, to rebuild their lives, their boy, and their dreams… together.
Step by grueling step, with faith, love, and the tireless work of a mother and father to save their family, their farm, their dream, Hoovey learns to walk again. To read again. To dribble and shoot a basketball again. And to dream again himself.
Then stepping out in his faith, back onto the hard court, to live that dream of playing this game once more.
Hoovey is the first film produced entirely by EchoLight Studios, a faith and family film company led by CEO Rick Santorum. It will release through the Studios’ unique church-based distribution model, EchoLight Cinemas on January 31.
