Auditions Announced for Miracle at Manchester: The amazing story of Brycen Newman.
In June 2015, high school sophomore Brycen Newman was diagnosed with medulloblastoma – a very aggressive and fast-growing brain cancer. One month after undergoing emergency surgery to remove a large tumor, doctors discovered three more tumors growing in the teen’s brain.
With only a 5% chance to survive, God and the folks at Cathedral Catholic in San Diego, California had other ideas.
“This is truly a miracle story, and we are excited to start production on this film in San Diego early next year,” says Jason Campbell, President of JCFilms.
The film is going to be titled Miracle at Manchester because it was at the Manchester Athletic Field where Brycen found his miracle when 1,800 students prayed over him.
On February 19, 2022, JCFilms Studios will be hosting open auditions to help cast the film. The production company is looking to cast as much local talent as possible and has even asked actor Dean Cain to in come in to help!
Cain is best remembered for his role in of Clark Kent/Superman in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Cain is scheduled to appear in Miracle at Manchester and will be part of a panel discussion (Q & A) following the auditions to talk about his work with JCFilms and this project.
In 2013, Jason Campbell wrote and produced his first faith-based film entitled Finding Faith. The film starred Erik Estrada and depicted a true story about a young girl being abducted by an internet predator. The film was a success and a unique faith-based film ministry was created, JCFilms. Today, JCFilms has produced a total of forty faith and family friendly films.
