‘Green Story’ lands thesps

Paramyth Films behind Vlahakis biopic

Paramyth Films has cast Malcolm McDowell, Louis Mandylor and Debbie Matenopoulos in biopic ”A Green Story.”

The trio joins Ed O’Ross, Shannon Elizabeth, Annabella Sciorra, George Finn and Alessandra Toressani in the Van Vlahakis story.

Castings were announced Monday at the American Film Market.

Written and directed by Nika Agiashvili, ”A Green Story” chronicles the life of Vlahakis, a Greek immigrant who arrived in America with only $22 in his pocket and eventually founded Earth Friendly Products.

The movie centers on the modern day Vlahakis, who is misdiagnosed with cancer and given two months to live. During this time, he reflects on his early life as an immigrant during the1950’s and decides to push himself to the limit by closing one final business deal.

Production began last week with principal photography taking place in Los Angeles, Chicago and Crete, Greece. Agiashvili will produce alongside John Edward Lee, Chadwick Struck and Deanna Plascencia.

Zac Reeder and Glen Reynolds from Circus Road Films will represent the movie worldwide.

McDowell is represented by Markham, Froggatt and Irwin and Chris Roe CR Management. Mandylor is repped by Erik Kritzer from Kritzer Levine Wilkins Griffin Entertainment and Matenopoulos by ICM and Marki Costello of Creative Management Entertainment Group.
