LOS ANGELES – In celebration of Independence Day, tickets go on sale July 4th for ShowBiz Direct’s upcoming film, REAGAN, starring Dennis Quaid as Ronald Reagan.

In addition to Quaid, the film boasts a stellar cast including Academy Award® Winner Jon Voight, Golden Globe Nominee Penelope Ann Miller, BAFTA nominee Mena Suvari, Emmy Award & Golden Globe Award Nominee Kevin Dillon, and Disney Star, David Henrie. 

“I think what’s gonna appeal to the audience is you’re getting the whole story,” Quaid noted about his role of a lifetime. 

From dusty small-town roots, to the glitter of Hollywood, and then on to commanding the world stage, REAGAN is a cinematic journey of overcoming the odds. Told through the voice of Viktor Petrovich, a former KGB agent whose life becomes inextricably linked with Ronald Reagan’s when Reagan first catches the Soviets’ attention as an actor in Hollywood, this film offers a perspective as unique as it is captivating. 
Quaid brings to life a story that transcends the boundaries of a traditional biopic, offering a profound exploration of the enduring impact of the power of one man who overcame the odds, sustained by the love of a woman who supported him in his journey, Nancy Reagan, played by Penelope Ann Miller.

“I’ve always been told bits and pieces of the stories of Ronald Reagan’s life, but this movie puts the whole story together,” noted Quaid. “I’ve played quite a few real people over the years, and I like to play them from their point of view, without judgment. It was a big challenge for me to get behind the public persona of the man and also to move beyond my own feelings of admiration for him.”

The REAGAN cast also includes a powerful lineup of supporting actors, including: Mark Moses, Trevor Donovan, Xander Berkeley, Dan Lauria, Amanda Righetti, C. Thomas Howell, Nick Searcy, Justin Chatwin, and Robert Davi. 

Directed by veteran filmmaker, Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer, Miracle Season), REAGAN serves as the debut release from the recently launched studio, ShowBiz Direct, led by former exhibition veteran Kevin Mitchell, former Lionsgate distribution president Richie Fay, and former co-president of Open Road distribution Scott Kennedy.

“We are honored for the opportunity to launch ShowBiz Direct with REAGAN and the cast does such an amazing job in this movie. Our team is ready to show the creative and exhibition communities that we want to work with you to put movies on the big screen where they belong and are extremely excited to bring REAGAN to a theater near you with our wide release on August 30th” said Mitchell.

A biopic set against the backdrop of the Cold War, the film was shot in Oklahoma and in California at Reagan’s beloved Rancho Del Cielo and Air Force One. The film follows Ronald Reagan from his humble beginnings to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, and finally on to his biggest role as Commander in Chief set on the world stage.

Tickets go on sale July 4th, however, advance group tickets are now available to take groups of 50 people or more at Reagan.Movie
