Salty Earth Pictures is also very thankful to be able to announce plans to begin work on the next feature motion picture. The movie will be based on the novel â€œThe Chaseâ€ written by Susan Wales and Robin Shope. Steve Zambo, president of Salty Earth Pictures, says â€œWe have been wanting to produce â€œThe Chaseâ€ for many years. Susan Wales and I first discussed it several years ago. We feel the time is right, with Godâ€™s help, to produce this exciting novel into a motion picture.â€ Author Susan Wales sates, â€œI really think this is a match made in Heaven for Salty Earth Pictures to do this film. It will be a big undertaking, because it is a big story.â€ Author Robin Shope says â€œIt is a thrill when you hear one of your books is to become a movie. I couldnâ€™t be more honored.â€ When asked about the storyline Shope, who lives in Dallas, added, â€œYou will find suspense and a love story that races between Washington, D.C. and Americaâ€™s Heartland. The issues it presents are timely and the emotions are timeless.â€ Susan Wales, who makes Los Angeles home, produces the â€œMovieguide Awardsâ€ annually. When asked about working with Wisconsin based Salty Earth Pictures she said, â€œWhat I love about Salty Earth Pictures, especially after being in Hollywood where it often takes 10 to 20 years to get a project done, is they get it done. People in Hollywood talk about it a lot, but Salty Earth Pictures gets it done. And that impressed me a lot.â€
There is much work to do over the months ahead. Plans for financing, casting, developing the shooting schedule and more will need to be met before the cameras roll. Zambo says, â€œSalty Earth Pictures is dedicated to producing entertaining stories that have a message of hope based on the truths that can be found in the Bible. I believe â€˜The Chaseâ€™ will reach many around the world.â€ If plans go as scheduled â€œThe Chaseâ€ will be released in early 2013.
