Written and directed by Bethany Ashton Wolf based upon the novel by Heidi McLaughlin, the film stars Alex Roe, Jessica Rothe, Abby Ryder Fortson, Travis Tritt, Judith Hoag and John Benjamin Hickey.

The film was produced by Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon and Jennifer Monroe. Executive producers are Alison Semenza King, Nicole Stojkovich and Zach Tann. The film features original country music written for the screen by Brett Boyett.

“We fell in love with this special movie the moment we saw it and we are excited to partner again with Mickey Liddell and our friends at LD Entertainment,” said Cohen and d’Arbeloff. “Forever My Girl is the kind of film that will play everywhere but we believe it will play especially well in the heartland. It has tested through the roof around the country – far above the norms with sensational reactions across the board. We can’t wait for audiences to discover the film and its soulful songs and heartfelt performances.”

Mickey Liddell stated, “Forever My Girl is one of those rare films that only comes along once every decade. It’s an uplifting, romantic and fun family film with amazing original country music. Writer-Director Bethany Ashton Wolf knocked it out of the park creating an atmosphere which allowed Alex and Jessica to develop a magnetic chemistry which delivered remarkable performances. I am thrilled to be back in business with Roadside and excited to share this movie with audiences across the country.”

LD Entertainment was represented by CEO Mickey Liddell, ICM’s Peter Trinh and Eric Thompson at The Law Offices of Eric W Thompson. Cohen negotiated the deal on behalf of Roadside Attractions.
