The movie, which will star John Holiday (Walk The Line, CMT’s Sun Records), is being produced by Los Angeles-based film production company AmeriFilms LLC and Road Rage Films.

The film’s producers have said they will be applying extra precautions during filming due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to Blabbermouth. Most actors will be filmed by themselves with a small crew, who will wear masks and adopt social distancing measures.

According to Backstage, the film will start filming next month.
