Vision Films is proud to present the new family adventure from multi-award winning filmmaker Thomas J. Churchill, “The Rack Pack.” Based on the book series of the same name, this film is a tribute to and is in the spirit of beloved films of the past that provided thrilling entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. “The Rack Pack” will be available on DVD and on demand for the first time on October 9, 2018.
This heartwarming film is based on “The Rack Pack” series of illustrated books about a group of friends who overhear a set of unsavory adults planning to steal long-lost Civil War treasure buried deep underground. The stories, penned by U.S. Army veteran Darrell Rackley, who also stars in the film and is an executive producer, are based on his childhood memories of a simpler time of how kids used to play before the internet age.
Starring C. Thomas Howell (“The Outsiders,” “ET: The Extra-Terrestrial”), Nico Ford (“Sinister 2,” “Sleepy Hollow”), Randy Jones (former member of “The Village People”), Cece Kelly (“Halt and Catch Fire,” “Union”) and David Schifter (“Homicide Hunter: Lt Joe Kenda,” “Sleepy Hollow”), “The Rack Pack” is about a group of military brats who play out their own adventures in the woods behind their house. One day, they come across some ruthless thieves searching for buried treasure and decide to find it themselves. But when the thieves take one of their father’s hostage, the kids must set out on a real rescue mission, forming a bond of brotherhood and friendship
called…”The Rack Pack.”
“The Rack Pack” will be available October 9 on Digital for an SRP $4.99 – $9.99 Rent or Buy across all platforms and to Buy on DVD for $12.99.
Director Thomas J. Churchill, who also has a role in the film as Antonia, embraced the chance to work with a film that was so reminiscent of the films he watched when he was younger. “Growing up, watching cool family films such as ‘Home Alone,’ ‘The Sandlot Kids’ and ‘The Goonies,’ and then to actually get a chance to do a wonderful film in that genre like ‘The Rack Pack’ and keeping it in the tradition of these iconic films is a dream come true,” he says.
“It was a pleasure to work with this amazing cast and crew,” says executive producer, Douglas Maddox. “The amazing C. Thomas Howell, who is known for his work in ‘ET’ and ‘The Outsiders,’ did a fantastic job playing the misguided villain. It would not have been the film it was without ‘The Rack Pack’ themselves, not to be mixed up with the Rat Pack. These young actors did a phenomenal job and I think families will love this adventure honoring the veterans and families alike.”
“’The Rack Pack’ is a film the whole family can watch and enjoy together,” says Vision Films CEO/Managing Director, Lise Romanoff. “It truly is a fun, but suspenseful film that has a great message of what can be accomplished with tenacity and teamwork.”
