Hallmark Channel said Monday that Andie MacDowell (Cedar Cove) and Chad Michael Murray will indeed be co-starring in a new Hallmark Hall of Fame original film, The Beach House.
The film, about a woman who returns to her Southern roots to find love and save sea turtles, has begun production and will premiere in May 2018, according to the Channel. It had originally been announced for a 2016 release.
“I love the connection to nature, preservation and saving turtles, and so I am grateful to Hallmark Channel, our wonderful cast, Dan Wigutow, Sue Tenney, and one of my favorite authors Mary Alice Monroe,” said MacDowell of the role when the film was announced.
Beach House is an adaptation of the Mary Alice Monroe novel series. Executive producers are Wigutow and Stephen Harmaty. Maria Nation and Tippi & Neal Dobrofsky will do the adaptation.
