Music superstar ‘Tony’ Lucca signs for New Orleans rom-com Going Due South
Burbank, California : Acclaimed singer, songwriter, and producer Anthony James “Tony” Lucca has signed to provide the score for the new feature film Going Due South.
An up-and-coming reality TV producer travels to the big Easy to shoot her latest series and finds New Orleans too intoxicating to ignore and Daniel, the sexy southerner, too perfect to want to… even though her career hangs in the balance.
The picture is expected to go before the cameras later this year.
With Going Due South’s script garnering as much buzz in Hollywood as it is the interest of some of today’s most popular actors, producers were able to land a big name to anchor the feature’s harmony section.
Lucca says that the film’s setting was one of the main appeals for him.
“It takes place in New Orleans, which is of course a gorgeous backdrop for any love story but it’s also a city with more musical heritage per square mile than most other cities combined.
“I am completely honoured and extremely inspired to be a part of this project.”
Lucca, whose music has been heard on such hit series as Friday Night Lights and Brothers & Sisters, as well as the film Open Range starring Kevin Costner, got his start alongside fellow music superstars Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, and Britney Spears on The Mickey Mouse Club. In later years, he was a finalist on TV juggernaut The Voice, which led to renewed interest in the talented muso and an expanded his fan base considerably. After supporting Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson and countless other major music acts on tour, Lucca recently embarked on his own – timed to coincide with the release of his recently-released self-titled album. Past releases include So Satisfied and Shotgun.
Going Due South is written and produced by industry vet Janet Arlotta, semi-finalist in Final Draft’s Big Break Screenwriting Contest.
