Edith IveyOur movie is now generating talk about Oscars!  First of all, the inspiration for this story was a cat named Oscar.  That’s got to be a sign, right?  

Second, we just cast Edith Ivey in one of our main roles. Edith has an impressive resume, but her most recent role was as Mrs. Maple – Brad Pitt’s piano teacher in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a film that won three Academy Awards and was nominated for many more, including Best Picture.  Earlier in her career, she was also in Norma Rae, another Academy Award winning movie.  Hopefully she will bring some of that Oscar glow with her.  Some of her other credits include: One Missed Call, Robocop 3 and several episodes of In the Heat of the Night.  

Edith will be playing Eunice, who is bold, brassy, and full of life.  Edith completely captured Eunice’s spirit, and we are thrilled to have her on board.
