This Friday night, West Seattleite Scott Schill will be in Hollywood – not as a tourist, but as the producer of a film having its world premiere at Hollywood’s legendary Chinese Theaters. The film is “Frank Vs. God,” described as “a comedy … a romance … a spiritual journey” whose protagonist is “serving God – with a lawsuit.” (Why, you ask? The trailer, above, explains.) It stars Henry Ian Cusick (from “Lost” and “Scandal” among other things). The film’s premiere is part of the 17th annual Dances With Films, which bills itself as the last truly independent film festival. (He says it did have a private screening for friends in Seattle back in April, “and the response was phenomenal.”) We asked what’s next for the filmed-in-Orlando movie, post-festival – will “Frank Vs. God” make it to “a theater near you”? Schill, a Junction resident, says they’re working on distribution plans and possibilities. But first, the premiere!
