Knoxville, TN— July 26, 2021— The Visit Knoxville Film Office today announced production has begun on the feature film Nothing Is Impossible starring David White, Nadia Bjorlin, Steven Bauer and Harry Lennix. The film is produced by Pinnacle Peak with Executive Producer David A.R. White (God's Not Dead, Do You Believe), directed by Matt Shapira, and written and produced by Tommy Blaze. The production is working closely with the Visit Knoxville Film Office to secure locations, crew, talent, and office space. The film office previously welcomed the producers in 2020 when they chose Knoxville as the location for their feature film, Banking on Christmas, which will be available to stream in November on Pureflix.com.
“We’re pleased to welcome Pinnacle Peak, Tommy Blaze, and his team back to Knoxville," said Curt Willis, Visit Knoxville Film Office Director and producer. “This is especially exciting since they joined us in the winter to shoot Banking on Christmas and their positive experience brought them back for another project.”
Nothing is Impossible: Nearly twenty years after missing his chance to play professional basketball, a high school janitor gets a second chance at both love and life.
"It might sound unbelievable, but because of its scope and size the film Nothing is Impossible languished in development for years with no hope in sight, until I mentioned it casually to Curt Willis at the Film Office and he told me, 'Bring the film to Knoxville. We can do it.' In less than a month, the film was approved and green-lit. So, in a movie about redemption and never giving up, that's how Nothing is Impossible got its second chance."
Nothing is Impossible joins the expanding list of films who chose Knoxville as their location. Knoxville’s profile as a production hub continues to grow as the city welcomes new film and television productions and facilities every year.
