Toby Keith Continues Work on Feature Film

Toby Keith is continuing filming in his starring role in Angel From Montgomery, a Paramount feature film for the newly-created CMT Films division and Paramount Home Entertainment. Production began in Atlanta in early October on the film that also stars Kelly Preston, Burt Reynolds, Willie Nelson, Tess Harper, Anna Maria Horsford and Lindsey Haun. Written by Cherie Bennett and Jeff Gottesfeld, the film is directed by Steven Goldmann and produced by Sara Risher and Donald Zuckerman. Loretha Jones, senior vice president of MTV Films and Home Entertainment, serves as executive in charge of production. Angel From Montgomery is the story of former high school sweethearts Bo Price (Keith) and Angela Delton (Preston) who return home after the deaths of their younger brothers. Keith plays a country singer who has fallen from the spotlight and whose life changes after coming home, reuniting with his true love and meeting his 16-year-old daughter (Haun) for the first time. Angel From Montgomery is slated for a 2006 theatrical release and will be followed by a limited run on CMT and DVD release. The film is the first CMT title under the new studio partnership created by Jeff Yapp, executive vice president of MTV Networks Music and Logo Enterprise Group, and Thomas Lesinski, president of Paramount Pictures, Worldwide Home Entertainment.
