Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie News for "The Beach House" starring Andie MacDowell


Since 2015, we've been hearing buzz about the book The Beach House becoming a Hallmark movie! Well, today there is finally new buzz!



According to therogersvillereview.com: "The Hallmark Channel plans to air “The Beach House” in May 2018." The movie "...is now being adapted to a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie by the Hallmark Channel, starring three-time Golden Globe nominee Andie MacDowell, who is also an executive producer of the movie."

The author of the book The Beach House, Mary Alice Monroe, just published her last book in The Beach House series, Beach House for Rent.

    1. That is so true! Movies can often inspire us to do something... the beach will surely be a lovely movie set!!!

      Poor things - they'll be forced to film at the beach! HA! HA!

      Wonder if they will use any of the set where Cedar Cove was filmed. It would be odd, yet comfortably familiar, to see Andie MacDowell (Judge Olivia Lockhart) there again! :)

  4. My, I've been waiting and waiting for news about this movie! I'm so glad it's moving along but May, 2018? Yikes! It's going to be awhile. Thanks so much Net for the update!

    1. You're welcome, Amy G. I'm happy to share! Hope everything goes now according to plan and they can finally get this one - in the works!

      Since they said May, 2018 for the air date... my hunch is, (being that it's a HHOF movie) it will air before Mother's Day!

  5. After reading this news about “The Beach House” and “The Christmas Train”, it seems to me like Hallmark wants to bring the Hallmark Hall of Fame back to the greatness it once was by doing what worked in the past: having books be the basis of the stories. Years ago, most Hallmark Hall of Fame movies were based on books, true stories, or both. Also, “The Beach House” is going to star Andie MacDowell, who starred in another Hallmark Hall of Fame movie in 2005. Do you think that all three books from this series could be made into Hallmark Hall of Fame movies (similar to the “Sarah, Plain and Tall” trilogy)?

    Do you know if “Love Locks” will be released on DVD? I’m asking because, usually, Hallmark Hall of Fame movies are put on DVD shortly after their television release.

    1. Great Question! I also wondered why "Love Locks" wasn't released on DVD soon after it aired. You are so right, Hallmark Hall of Fame (HHOF) Movies are typically released on DVD right away, after they air on TV. It seems, the entire HHOF series of films haven't been quite the same, promotionally speaking, etc... since they left network TV. They used to always air 3 movies a year, like clockwork. Hallmark wisely ran them then before three of the most popular card giving holidays... Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, and Christmas to promote the Hallmark stores! Now, it's never certain if we will have one around the first two holidays, but every year, one comes at Christmas, thankfully!

      Like you, I'm looking forward to The Christmas Train... sounds like a deep, intriguing story!

      (Here's the Storyline for "The Christmas Train, for anyone who hasn't read it:
      The Christmas Train (Hallmark Channel - Hallmark Hall of Fame)
      “David Baldacci’s No. 1 New York Times bestseller comes to Hallmark Hall of Fame with this story of cynical journalist Tom Langdon, taking a train from D.C. to L.A. for Christmas. He’s not too thrilled with the journey, but Tom is the sort who’s not thrilled by much. Tom’s been briefly married but never had kids. Today his ex-wife wouldn’t accept a collect call from him in the most dire of circumstances. Tom is forty-one and has just lost his mother to a stroke; his father has been dead for several years. Being an only child he is truly alone now, and that has made him introspective. Half his time on earth is gone, and all he has to show for it is a failed marriage, no offspring, an informal alliance with a California voiceover queen, a truckload of newsprint and some awards. By any reasonable measure, it is a miserable excuse for an existence. But Tom’s cross-country journey will soon become an internal odyssey. Strangers remind of him of people’s innate goodness. Before long, Tom rekindles a love, and the magic of Christmas takes hold.”)


      Also... wish I knew, but I just don't know, yet, if there will be any more movies from "The Beach House" series after this one. It seems, it has taken quite a while to get this one going, so... we'll have to wait and see!

      I'll be sure to also keep a look out for "Love Locks" on DVD!

      Blessings, Net :)

    1. Excellent question! I think many would like it - IF they could bring back "Cedar Cove" and tie up all the loose ends in one last movie. However, I have no idea if this will ever happen and as time goes by it's probably less and less likely to... but Never say Never, right??? :)

      Maybe twenty years from now - they'll have a reunion movie!!!
