Texas-native Drew Waters (Friday Night Lights) Directs His Debut Film “New Life”- Releases October 28th
NEW LIFE is about love’s power, no matter the circumstances in life
You may remember Texas-native Drew Waters–fighter jet pilot turned model/actor–from the Emmy Award winning show Friday Night Lights or HBO’s True Detective. He’s back now, writing, directing, producing by way of Argentum Entertainment, debuting their first feature film Oct 28, NEW LIFE. The movie has that classic-love feel as Sleepless in Seattle.
“All good art asks questions that make us reflect,” Waters said. “Film too. Stories with truth, power, humor and warmth should and can be told, integrity intact.” In the words of the company website: “As movie lovers ourselves, we have grown tired of walking out of the theater and saying things like, ‘That was a good movie . . . except for __________.” Fill in that blank with anything from uncomfortable scenes to offensive language to poor production quality.” “Argentum Entertainment is taking out the ‘except for . . .’” Waters says. “Pure storytelling, no exceptions.”
If you liked Sleepless, The Notebook, The Fault in Our Stars, then NEW LIFE is your next love story.
NEW LIFE (Nouvelle Vie) is a film about hope. Benjamin Morton’s life changed forever the day he met the little girl next door. Ava was and always would be the girl of his dreams. From the innocence of a childhood friendship, through adolescent attraction, their love strengthens and grows. When life takes a turn neither of them expected, their entire future is called into question.
NEW LIFE explores the ups and downs of life and love, showing us that in good times and bad, life can be approached with hope and the opportunity for something new.
