New Golf Film ‘THE MULLIGAN’ Kicks Off Production Alongside 2021 Masters Tournament
ReelWorks Studios Announces Latest Film Featuring Eric Close and Pat Boone Based on Novel by Pro-Golfer Wally Armstrong and Ken Blanchard
Appearance by PGA Champion Tom Lehman
NASHVILLE, Tenn., April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — ReelWorks Studios announces their latest film THE MULLIGAN, an inspiring story about relationships, forgiveness and priorities featuring Pat Boone (JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH, STATE FAIR), Eric Close (“Nashville,” AMERICAN SNIPER, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”), Tanya Christiansen (I STILL BELIEVE, THE HATE U GIVE) and Charmin Lee (JUST MERCY, THE 5TH WAVE) with special appearance by PGA Champion Tom Lehman. THE MULLIGAN began filming in Georgia on April 6 to coincide with the 2021 Masters Tournament and is set to hit theaters in 2022.
“We are thrilled to have some of the largest golf companies including PING, Titleist, FootJoy, Payne Stewart Golf Camps and Arnold Palmer Drink Company involved in helping us bring this incredible story to life,” says producer Rick Eldridge.
THE MULLIGAN follows the life of a successful international businessman, Paul McAllister, whose personal life is falling apart. While playing in a pro-am charity golf tournament sponsored by his company, Paul has a complete meltdown. With the introduction of a mysterious character known as “The Old Pro,” Paul receives the inspiration he needs to reverse his downward spiral and experience his own personal “do-over” which is much more about his life than his golf game.
“Through the game of golf, I have experienced many of my greatest memories and formed some of my closest friendships,” says Actor Eric Close. “I’m excited to explore Paul’s journey of redemption through the game of golf and an unlikely friendship.”
Inspired by the novel from Wally Armstrong and Ken Blanchard, screenplay writers Rick Eldridge, Jimmy Hager, Randall Eldridge and Roland Eldridge pack THE MULLIGAN with a combination of golf and heartwarming life lessons.
