While Shannon Elizabeth was back on the big screen last weekend in "American Reunion," reprising the role of Nadia that made her famous, an entirely different side of the actress will be on display in the upcoming biopic "A Green Story."
Joining Elizabeth are Ed O’Ross, Annabella Sciorra, George Finn, Malcolm McDowell, Billy Zane, Louis Mandylor, Debbie Matenopoulos and Alessandra Toressani in the film that tells the true story Van Vlahakis, a Greek immigrant who arrived in America with only $22 in his pocket and eventually founded the multi-million dollar green company, Earth Friendly Products. The trailer for the film which is unveiled below provides an interesting mix of true-life biopic and the quest for the American Dream. The film was shot on location in both Los Angeles and Greece, and certainly provides a bit of a different story to what is currently in the news about the state of Greek economy and politics.
Directed by Nika Agiashvili, "A Green Story" will premiere at the L.A. Greek Film Festival on May 31st at Hollywood’s Egyptian Theater. Watch the trailer below.
