The Film House has a slate of films to be shot in Syracuse within the next year.
“We have some terrific projects lined up and American Dresser and its incredible cast and crew is a great one to start with,” said Ryan Johnson, President and CEO of The Film House.
The story of American Dresser has been described as Easy Rider meets Crazy Heart. When faced with the death of his wife and the mounting strain it puts on his family, down on his luck construction worker and recovering alcoholic John Moore (Tom Berenger) finds his only solace in drinking again. Now with his world collapsing around him, John finds a letter that his wife had kept hidden from him. The letter is from a woman John had been with over 20 years ago informing him that she was pregnant with his son. John decides to fix up and ride his American Dresser motorcycle out to California to find his son with his best friend and fellow Vietnam war veteran, Charlie (Keith David), who is dealing with devastating news of his own. They embark on a cross-country quest for salvation that requires them both to face the demons of their past. Berenger and David first worked together in the 1986 Vietnam war film, Platoon.
