Another Christmas Movie in the works!

I just recently discovered this news! Looks like another NEW Christmas Movie is in the filming process, titled...
"The Last Love Letter"

According to a casting call for extras on the web-site, voiceofalexandria.com:

Want To Be In A Movie? Here's Your Chance

"If you ever wanted to be in the movies, you'll have a chance tonight (Friday) in Northfield. Strike Accord Productions wants extras to hang around Bridge Square in downtown Northfield, to create outdoor scenes about a Christmas fair in a film that's now being called "The Last Love Letter." Line producer Jillian Nodland says you can show up at the square any time from 5:30 tonight until as late as 5:30 tomorrow (Saturday) morning. You're asked to wear cold weather clothing with Santa hats or other Christmas touches. Nodland says you won't get paid, so there's no checking in-and-out -- you can stay as long as you like -- and if you're there late at night, the crowds will be most likely be smaller, and you'll have a better chance of seeing yourself on film."
(information via: voiceofalexandria.com Posted on Jan 22, 2016 by Minnesota News Network)

So... this is intriguing Christmas movie news, huh?

What we know, thus far, is an unusual working title for a Christmas movie: "The Last Love Letter". Honestly, it actually sounds more like a Valentine's Day Movie title, but still very interesting. We know there is some sort of fun Christmas fair in the film, and we also know, from the information provided above, the production company, Strike Accord Productions. I looked them up and according to the Strike Accord Productions web-site, STRIKE ACCORD, INC. is a production company that started with husband and wife, Mike and Lori Leahy. Their mission statement is... "to create socially and spiritually conscience films".

Could this be a TV, Theater, or Direct-to-DVD release? For now, it's anybody's guess. If you see or hear anything - please feel free to share!!!

But the arrival in town of Faith (Andrea Brooks), Jack’s nurse friend who cared for his brother in Hamilton, may complicate matters. Abigail (Loughlin) takes in a young orphan and his sister, who has taken ill, and happily finds herself in the role of a mother once again although creating a new family isn’t without its challenges. Meanwhile, the revelation of Pastor Frank Hogan’s (Mark Humphrey) less-thanlawful past has Abigail questioning her desire to pursue a romantic relationship with him as Frank works to convince her he’s truly left behind his previous life. Bill (Wagner) comes to the conclusion that it’s time to leave the Mounties and strike out on his own as he continues his work on the right side of the law, but without the restrictions of the uniform. He and Nora (Kristina Wagner, come to a resolution about their relationship while she contemplates what the future holds for her and whether Hope Valley is part of it. Lee (Kavan Smith) and Rosemary’s (Pascale Hutton) romance continues to blossom but not all is smooth sailing, as a series of mishaps at Lee’s paper mill creates concern about his ability to stay open – and keep many in the town employed -- and has Bill investigating it as sabotage.
