Steve Brewer’s Lonely Street to debut at Boston Film Festival.

Almost two years ago, I first talked about the film version of Steve Brewer’s Lonely Street.

About a year ago, I mentioned that the film’s release was delayed until 2008.

Now word finally comes that the film will make it’s debut at the 24th Boston Film Festival.

The screening will be on Sunday, September 14th, at 8pm.

The Kendall Landmark Theater is hosting the film festival.

I have only seen a little of the film, but the one scene I did see was great.

I have always found Jay Mohr (Jerry MaGuire, Ghost Whisperer) to be a likeable guy and it is his charming demeanor that makes him a great fit in the role of Bubba.

Robert Patrick was amazing as…well you will have to see.

Bubba is a likeable, but gullible, Private Investigator. He is hired by a reclusive celebrity to spy on a reporter. When the reporter turns up dead, Bubba is the prime suspect.

Lonely Street also stars Tony-winner Joe Mantenga, from the CBS show Criminal Minds, as well as Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters) and Paul Rodreguiz.

The director is Peter Ettinger. Peter has previously worked as an assistant editor on such films as The Bourne Identity, The Fast and the Furious and Flushed Away.

For those of you that are not familiar with the works of Brewer (Shame on you), he writes mysteries that contain an enjoyable blend of crime and hunor. The characters tend to be colorful (i.e. weird).
