"Endless Love" , a pre-teen Love Story

Updated 10 weeks ago Edited from a Press Release

There is nothing more overpowering, reckless and all-consuming than the rush that accompanies first love…in all of its intensity and obsession, possibility and promise. It is a timeless theme in modern storytelling, dating back to Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, but one that remains urgently current because it serves as a rite of passage for everyone in every generation.


This Valentine’s Day, one young couple will fight against all odds for love. Endless Love stars ALEX PETTYFER (Magic
Mike, I Am Number Four) and GABRIELLA WILDE (The Three Musketeers, Carrie) in the story of Jade Butterfield and David Elliot, a privileged girl and a charismatic boy whose instant desire sparks a love affair made only more reckless by parents trying to keep them apart. Although separated by class boundaries, their gravitational pull is undeniable and unstoppable.


During the months following their high school graduation, Jade, a sheltered young woman with a imitless future, becomes enthralled with David, a working-class boy with a troubled past who in turn falls head over heels for her. Their romance collides with

Jade’s controlling father’s attempts to steer her clear of David, while her mother encourages the relationship to
thrive and his father advises clear-eyed caution. Over the course of one unforgettable summer, two young
lovers will defy logic and allow their all-consuming passion to determine their future together.


Directed by SHANA FESTE (Country Strong,
The Greatest), the romantic drama co-stars a cast
of seasoned and up-and-coming performers, led by
BRUCE GREENWOOD (Star Trek, Flight) as Hugh,
Jade’s overbearing father who never lets her out of
his sight; JOELY RICHARDSON (The Girl with the
Dragon Tattoo, Vampire Academy) as Anne, Jade’s
romantic and idealistic mother who has the heart of a
poet; and ROBERT PATRICK (Safe House, upcoming
Kill the Messenger) as David’s father, Harry, a mechanic
who wants his son to have the life he never did.
They are joined by young talents RHYS
WAKEFIELD (The Purge, Sanctum) as Keith, Jade’s
loving, yet rebellious, older brother; DAYO OKENIYI
(The Hunger Games, The Spectacular Now) as Mace,
David’s fantastically reckless best friend; and EMMA
RIGBY (The Counselor, television’s Once Upon a
Time in Wonderland) as Jenny, David’s formidable exgirlfriend
who refuses to give up on him so easily

To produce the film, SCOTT
STUBER (Ted, Safe House) of
Bluegrass Films and producer
PAMELA ABDY (Identity Thief,
47 Ronin) of New Regency are joined
by JOSH SCHWARTZ (TV’s Gossip
Girl, The O.C.) and STEPHANIE
SAVAGE (TV’s Gossip Girl,
Hart of Dixie) of Fake Empire.
For Endless Love, Feste commands
a behind-the-scenes team that is led
by director of photography ANDREW
DUNN (Precious, The Perks of Being
a Wallflower), production designer
CLAY GRIFFITH (We Bought a Zoo,
Sweet Home Alabama), editor MARYANN BRANDON
(Star Trek, Super 8), costume designer STACEY BATTAT
(The Bling Ring, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby)
and composer CHRISTOPHE BECK (The Hangover
trilogy, The Muppets).
