Ashlee Hewitt to Star in new movie "Elle: A Modern Day Cinderella Tale".
The plot is: Elle wants to be a singer/songwriter, but her dreams are cut short by the sudden death of her parents. She moves in with her adoptive uncle (Thomas Calabro), who runs a small independent record label whose biggest act, Sensation, is also Elle's biggest pain. The pop music environment at the label, very different than the country roots she is used to, adds to Elle's feelings of loss and frustration, and her misplaced guilt, which is caused by the fact that her parents had been en route to her performance at the time of their death. But when she meets Ty Parker, a famous pop singer with a passion for "real" music, her repressed ambition is released through a revitalized interest in singing and songwriting. The movie will be directed by Sean and John Dunson. The writer is Bo Ransdell. Filming will take place in Los Angeles, California. The movie will be released sometime next year.
