Gabriel’s Messenger Films has announced the beginning of production on The Investigator, which is inspired by true events surrounding a veteran detective who becomes a high school baseball coach. The film will complete production in February 2012.
Inspired by events in writer Richard Romano’s life, The Investigator will be directed by Curtis Graham (Misconceptions, The Glass Window) and produced by Nicole Abisinio (Prime Of Your Life, Broken Flowers).
Acting newcomer and musician Wade Williams plays Sergeant James Buanacore, while David Sanborn takes the role of his brother Paul.
Twenty year veteran investigator James Buanacore starts the most important investigation of his life when a drug bust goes tragically wrong. The death of the apparent suspect forces James out of the job he loves and into retirement.
When James’ wife Stephanie has a miscarriage, he is devastated and begins to wonder about and question his previously strong faith. Depressed and angry, James isolates himself until his brother helps him get an interview and he takes a job at the local Christian High School as a part time criminal justice teacher and baseball coach.
With his cop mentality challenging the youngsters, James struggles through experiences with an unsupportive principal, a youth pastor with a secret and rebellious students. But when his best option seems to be quitting, a student challenges him to begin the investigation that will change his life, and those of his students, forever.
