Numerous Emilie's Interviews

Emilie de Raven talks Robert Pattinson and Lost:
The former Melbourne, now LA-based, TV and film star opens up to TNT. Remember Me is a romantic drama set in New York. What’s your experience of dating in big lonely cities?
It is difficult. People just end up meeting in bars. No one’s actually walking around and interacting. Online dating and all these things … they’re so fake, I’m sure people aren’t really writing proper profiles. It’s all such a game instead of it just being an organic process.
So, to the most important question …What was it like to kiss your Remember Me co-star Robert Pattinson?
I’m so curious about what people want me to say! Do people want a description of his mouth?
Well, is he a good kisser? Girls want to know and you’ve been there …
Yeah, been there, done that, and ticked that one off! He’s a great guy and everything was just very comfortable.
There were tabloid stories suggesting you and Pattinson were a couple. How did you deal with that?
I don’t know. You just ignore it or laugh about it. In a way, it amuses me, but it’s stupid. What are you going to do about it? I should readthese things to find out what I’ve been doing!
What are your favourite romantic movies?
Without going into old films, because I could go on about those forever, I suppose something that was relevant to me when I was a teenager was [Baz Luhrmann’s] Romeo + Juliet. I think because it wasn’t fake. It dealt with tragedy. I’ve never been a fan of fluffy romantic movies, showing everyone happy and a perfect ending.
Remember Me deals with teenage angst. What were you like as a teen?
I was so enveloped in this whole new world of acting, it didn’t give me time to deal with that. I moved to LA when I was 18. I moved for a job, then just kept working, so I stayed out. And LA is just crazy. Especially coming from Melbourne, which is a pretty cool, down-to-earth, cosmopolitan city.
In LA you have endless people wanting to be your friend for the wrong reasons or people with ulterior motives. There are some great people there too, but you can’t be naïve.
You’re probably best known as Claire in Lost. How was it to return after a season absence?
Great. It was a good time after four seasons to have a break. It was kind of perfect. I got to work on some great stuff. But it was exciting to see everyone.
So what happens then at the end of Lost?
You can tell us … I actually don’t know! We have three episodes left to shoot. I really don’t know. Are you excited to find out? Yeah, are you kidding? It’s been six years of not knowing! It’s going to be good, I’m sure, but I’ve no idea what.
What is next for you?
An animated film, Legend Of The Guardians. Zack Snyder directed it. It’s based on a series of books and we’re all Australian owls! I’m a very cute little fluffy owl called Eglantine. It was so fun. It’s incredible the amount of work that goes intothese things.

Interview: Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin (inthenews.co.uk)

A rather exhausted looking Robert Pattinson talks to inthenews.co.uk about his new film Remember Me at its premier in London's Leicester Square.

Following what appeared to be an exhausting few hours on the red carpet, 'RPattz' and his most recent leading lady Emilie du Ravin made their way into the Odeon for the premier of their new film, and to talk to yet more journalists.

Glowing in a black lace cocktail dress with terrifyingly high heels, the tiny Emilie du Ravin looked at ease next to her co-star. Poor Pattinson however, who has become synonymous with the Twilight brand and now attracts hundreds of screaming young girls wherever he goes, looked drained after his hours spent talking to fans, signing autographs and 'biting them'. "I've been up since 6am" the heart-throb said wearily.

Nicholas Osborne, Remember Me's producer, said the Twilight star was on board from the start: "I'm very proud to say that Rob read the script in the parking lot of an In n Out Burger! And it was two months before Twilight came out and Rob signed on and stuck with the project and from there everything snowballed.

"Rob [who is also executive producer on the film] always wanted this project to be handled a certain way and so we consulted with him on the script and various things along the way."

Emilie (looking surprised) says to Robert: "I didn't even know you were [executive producer] when we were filming!"

So what makes someone like Robert Pattinson choose a little known film such as this? He says: "I read tonnes and tonnes of scripts over the summer after I'd done Twilight, I mean hundreds, and all of them seemed exactly the same, but this one, initially just because the way the dialogue was written, seemed more naturalistic than most things.

"And also Tyler as a character - it seems that most movies that have a young male protagonist as the lead, they either have to be a virgin to begin with and have to learn everything during the movie or they always have to go through the trials of the movie and end up a completely different person afterwards. But Tyler seemed like he came with a lot of baggage, and a developed character, and just ended up being developed in a slightly different way.

"You just never see that in films any more, especially not with young people, and that's what initially drew me."

Both Emilie and Robert have difficulties, with their fathers in the film, played by Chris Cooper and Pierce Brosnan, but how was it playing alongside such famed actors? Emilie says: "I was over the moon when I found out Chris was playing my dad, I've been a fan of his for years and think he's just incredible. He's a very intense person but very giving."

While Robert added: "When they first talked about the father role I never ever would have thought that it would have been someone like Pierce playing Charles.

"But I think he has this innate likeability about him, as soon as you meet him. And Charles on the page was someone who was very domineering and quite a strong character, and Pierce, just by being Pierce, changed the whole dynamic of it. It was great, as it made it a much more interesting relationship I think."

Robert's younger sister in the film, played by Ruby Jerins, has a very sweet relaitionship with his character Tyler. Robert easily sung the little actress's praises: "I always wanted a younger sibling and Ruby is one of the best actresses I have ever worked with.

"She is surprisingly articulate about her character, and when I first met her she seemed like a very, very normal kid, and then the more she talked about her character and her character's development, she could just improvise for hours and she was so comfortable working in front of the camera, and she was really amazing. It was really easy to do anything with her."

But how was it for him stepping out of the 'Twilight': "I never like anything [films], so it's very easy to decide what to do! Even movies I'm not in! I've never felt any pressure to do anything. Even when we were filming it I never thought about the box office or anything.

"It's not a Twilight movie, its an original screenplay. And it doesn't fit into any genre. They don't make movies like it anymore, and that's the only criteria I really have if there seems to be a gap in the market for something then I just try and do that."

While Emilie added: "It [the film] didn't read like script, it read like a letter, it was so honest and organic in that way.

"[Lost] has been a big part of my life and it's been a great ride. It's kind of bittersweet that it's ending.

"I'm glad it's ending on a high note, but obviously you miss certain things about projects."

The film, set in New York, deals with some tough issues, but Nicholas Osborne says they were all pleased with how it came out: "We had a lot of New Yorker's on set, and we had a lot of New Yorkers who had been affected by the events in the movie, and we had a number of cops in the movie who were affected by the events as well, and they all read the script and fell in love with it and felt it was an important story to tell.

"We always felt good about that, that they gave it their stamp of approval."

New Emilie's Interview About Remember Me











The interview was posted on cineplex.com You can see it here

“The Perfect Game”: A Flawless Underdog Story (Article/Review)

Director William Dear’s “The Perfect Game” chronicles the true story of the first Mexican Little league team and its heart wrenching journey to the American little league championship of 1957. Having directed 1994’s “Angels in the Outfield” Dear is no doubt familiar with the formula for an unblemished sports film. Every movie ever made in this genre (especially when portraying true events) must have two or more the following clichés to be worthy of sports movie greatness:
• Misfit group or lackluster team (Check)
• Reluctant but talented player/Coach (Check)
• A tragic accidental Death (Check)
• A wise-cracking authority figure (Check)
• An unsupportive secondary character who comes around at just the right moment (Check)
•Civil rights reference (Only applies to movies that take place before 1975, (Check)
This film didn’t skip a single cliché and why should it? Why deviate from a formula that works?  The misfits in this case, were a disadvantaged group of lovable Mexican boys who dream of playing major league ball. Having very little knowledge of the game they are reluctantly coached by an emotionally scarred neighbor (Clifton Collins Jr.) and former employee of a major league team who ends up learning more from them than he could ever teach. Motivated by the tragic accidental death of an elder brother the team’s star player, Angel (Jake Austin) must decide between the game and respecting his unsupportive alcoholic father’s wishes.  The determined boys journey into the land of opportunity and  experience  good ole’American bigotry and prejudice (Civil Rights reference). Throw in a wise-cracking priest (Cheech Marin), a sharp tongued female sports reporter (Emile Ravin) and some really bad Mexican accents and normally you would have a recipe for the world’s cheesiest movie. Luckily for writer William Winokur this movie hits a home run! Predictability aside prepare to lose yourself in this film. Anyone can google the story and know how it ends, but the fun is in the journey and all the mishaps along the way. A paragraph on Wikipedia just wouldn’t do this tale justice.
The Perfect Game is a flawless underdog story complete with surprise encounters and great sacrifices. Though heavy on the emotion at times this movie never forgets its purpose, to entertain. I found myself rolling my eyes at the first few scenes, but by the end of the first half hour I was hooked. And by the end of the first hour, I had completely forgotten that I knew how the story ends and I was on the edge of my seat. With all the big budget blunders and 3D epics with improbable plots, it was refreshing to simply see actors acting. It’s hard to remember a time when the movie was about the story and not the actors in it or the gratuitous special effects. It was a rare treat to simply be entertained by a great story and not some computer generated over-hyped nonsense. The fact that its based on actual events is a major plus so, grab the kids, or some childlike adults and see this movie. The perfect game hits the perfect mark. And yes I am well aware of how corny that sounds, and I really don’t care, this movie was that
good. Now go see it! The Perfect Game hits theaters April 16th!

WB announces multiplatform Legend of the Guardians game



 Finally, your chance to play a heroic owl in an owl-focused game! WBIE announced that it’s adapting Zack Snyder’s new film, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, into a game for Wii, PS3, Xbox 360, and DS, with release planned in September. The PS3, 360, and Wii versions are developed by Krome, with Tantalus Media in charge of the DS release.
Legend of the Guardians puts the player in the role of a Guardian, a member of a group of owls devoted to doing good. Which, judging by the trailer, means fighting with other owls and taking part in that flight game staple, flying through rings. Perhaps you also get to estimate the number of licks required to reach the center of a Tootsie Pop, but that’s not reflected in the trailer.

Let's hope that Eglantine, Emilie's character in the movie, will be a part of the video game...

Emilie's Interview with the Independent (UK)

Emilie de Ravin -She's busy making up for Lost time

Emilie de Ravin doesn't crave the spotlight, but her latest film role alongside man-of-the-moment Robert Pattinson may make it hard to avoid. By Rosamund Witcher
Friday, 26 March 2010
With her new film, Emilie de Ravin has hit the jackpot. Not only does she get to cavort in steamy scenes with heartthrob du jour Robert Pattinson (OMG! RPattz!) in Remember Me, but she gets to bask in the heat of a talked-about movie that, without Pattinson's involvement, may have been another under-the-radar romantic drama.
Pattinson's first project since the unprecedented success of the Twilight films sees him as an angry rich kid – sans creepy vampire makeup – who falls in love with a ballsy young philosophy student, played by de Ravin. At 28 – five years Pattinson's senior – she is still girlish enough to pass for 21.
You'll most likely recognise the Australian actress de Ravin as the young mother Claire in Lost (currently in its explosive sixth series on Sky1), but her association with Pattinson has catapulted her into the celebrity weeklies.
When we meet in New York, where the film is set, a blizzard is raging outside the hotel window. Like Pattinson, she seems embarrassed about her success, shrugging off compliments and rolling her eyes at talk of fans and paparazzi. "I get recognised," she says with a dismissive wave, "but I'm not the sort of person who frequents popular clubs. I try to keep out of that."
De Ravin is part of a new breed of celebrity – like Pattinson and his Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart – who shun the glamour and adulation that many see as a perk of the job. When de Ravin slouched onto the red carpet at the London premiere of Remember Me recently, grinning awkwardly in her black Oscar de la Renta mini-dress, she and Pattinson looked as though they would rather be anywhere else.
Despite their 'I'm-so-normal' façade, journalists are warned not to ask about their private lives on pain of death. A hovering publicist peers up from her BlackBerry at the mere hint of a personal question to de Ravin (it could be worse: no less than three handlers accompany Pattinson during his interview). But this much we know: she married the American actor Josh Janowicz in June 2006 after being together for four years. The couple separated last year, but are rumoured to have reunited.
"Love is such an objective thing," she says, in a suitably vague answer to a necessarily vague question about love. "I mean, I can say I love my family, or I love my Diet Coke," she continues, gesturing towards her Coke can. "So I guess, in different ways, yeah, I do believe in love."
But in terms of relationships?
"It's different with every person. It depends if it... clicks. It's chemistry."
Either way, if she's in love when we meet, there is no ring on her finger. Of course she was romantically linked to Pattinson during filming, but RPattz could star opposite Ellen DeGeneres and there would be rumours. Having said that, the young stars' on-screen chemistry is undeniable. Viewers will be surprised to learn they met just one week before filming commenced.
"She's really cool," says Pattinson, pushing back his James Dean-esque mane, when we meet later that afternoon. "She was actually the last girl we saw and she was cast on the day of her audition, so we went straight out to a bar. It was so close to filming that we didn't have time to rehearse. But she got it right from the beginning, so it was easy."
De Ravin agrees that the best preparation was getting to know each other. "Our relationship in the film is intense," she nods. "We spent a lot of time together, talking about our characters and their relationship, because it's so important to be comfortable together. Then, when we were actually shooting, everything fell into place and felt natural. It didn't ever feel like we were reading a scene or going through the motions."
Watching Pattinson brooding or de Ravin screaming at her on-screen father (Chris Cooper), I have to ask: did they manage to have any fun on set?
"If you're getting ready to do a really emotional scene then, right before it, you're probably not going to be outside playing basketball," she shrugs. "But everybody involved was passionate about it so there was a good vibe."
Having not spent much time in New York before landing the role, de Ravin has now fallen in love with the city. "New York is a character in the film," she smiles, either not noticing or not caring what a cliché that is. "It was great to be able to walk around the city on days off. And it's so rare to be able to shoot in the real locations. When we have dinner, we were actually in The Oak Room and when we were doing a scene in the house Ally [her character] grew up in, that was in Queens."
Of course, the downside of shooting around the city is that Twilight fans and paparazzi had easy access to locations.
"It was distracting at times," admits de Ravin. "We shot 90 per cent on location in Manhattan or Queens so it was very accessible. It's not like they can close down Central Park. So it was difficult for Rob and I to figure out the logistics of a rehearsal when you've got thousands of people watching. Even if you're not looking at them, you're aware of it. It can be hard to focus."
It must have been a very different experience from filming Lost in the relative seclusion of Hawaii. As we speak, de Ravin is about to finish shooting the final season of the hit show. Can she tell us anything about how it ends? Do they ever get off that bloody island?
"I honestly don't know," she laughs. "We're filming the next episode in a few days and I don't even have that script yet. But that's the same with every show on TV. With films, you have time to read the script properly and rehearse. You can develop a back-story and, by the time you start shooting, you know everything you need to. That's one of the many things I love about film in comparison to TV."
Although de Ravin clearly yearns for a film career, you can't help feeling that she isn't really cut out for Hollywood. Ask her where home is and she says emphatically: "Temporary home is LA. But home home is Melbourne."
What does she miss most about it? "Everything," she sighs wistfully. "Walking around the city and the gardens and the restaurants. I don't get home as much as I would like to. There's a lot of downtime on Lost, so I might have three weeks off, but you never know in advance if you might be needed. I miss my family so much, my ideal holiday is just to hang out with them. I'm kind of a homebody. I like to sit at home and watch movies and eat good food."
De Ravin is no stranger to film, having starred in 2005's high-school noir Brick, alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and the 2006 horror The Hills Have Eyes (tagline: "The Lucky Ones Die First"). So she's no red carpet virgin; it's just that it's not really her natural home.
"Once in a while it's fun to dress up for a premiere," she shrugs. "But I'm not someone that's going to stick on heels and a dress every day. Shopping stresses me out."
What about staying in shape? Her impressive abs are on display in Remember Me. She must work out?
"No, I don't really do anything. I'm not very fit."
Just good genes then?
"Yeah. Thanks mum."
So there you go: Emilie de Ravin is a study in laid-back cool. One of that frustrating breed of beautiful I-just-rolled-out-of-bed-and-this-is-how-I-look people. A lot like Robert Pattinson in fact. So, when she was filming scenes with RPattz, who spent the most time on their hair?
She explodes with laughter: "Oh come on! Totally Rob," she grins, before shaking her head at the ridiculousness of the question and, more seriously, adding, "Neither one of us really did much. It was just like... " she mimes messing up her hair with devil-may-care nonchalance.
Then she shrugs again.
'Remember Me' is released on 2 April. 'Lost' is on Fridays at 9pm on Sky1 and Sky1 HD

Another Interview From "Screenrush"

New Emilie's Interviews

 This one is from the April's issue of UK Cosmopolitan:

WHAT IT’S LIKE TO KISS R PATZ

Lost’s Emily De Ravin, 28, locks lips with RP in her new film, but says work comes second. Job swap, anyone?

*Tell us about the finest men you’ve worked with – included Johnny Deep and Robert Patinson…

- Johnny Deep is one of my favorite actors. When we met on Public Enemies he was genuinely nice. The Lost guys are too, and Robert Pattinson couldn’t be more of a great guy. He’s insanely talented, but I don’t even think he knows that.

*Were you intrigued to be working with him after all the Twilight publicity?

-I didn’t really know who he was! I’ve never been a tabloid reader or a person who follows what somebody is going to the grocery store for.

*You can’t have escaped the Twilight phenomenon though?

-The fan base is wonderful. But shooting with Rob in New York was crazy. There were girls climbing all over him, which did make things difficult. He’d been through it all before but it was very new to me. Because the majority of fans were teenage girls. I felt like, ‘Oh, God, they all hate me.’ You walk out and they’re like, ‘Who’s this girl with the guy we’re here to see?’ but then they saw me smiling, and they we’re like ‘Oh she’s actually nice!’

*You got to kiss Rob too…

-That was a very spontaneous thing actually, which tabloid-wise came out as us making out on the beach, but really we were filming.

*And now you have to say he’s a good kisser, right?

-(Laughs) It’s in contract, yes.

*You split from your husband of three years last year. Are you happily single or looking for love again?

-I don’t talk about that stuff anymore- I’ve learnt my lesson! But I think in any situation, the important thing is having people around you that love and care about and respect you. People you can be open and honest about everything with.

*What’s best about your life?

-Happiness for me is spending time with my friends and family. I love my career but my family comes first and I’m lucky that I’m close to them. I try to get back to Australia at least twice a year. It’s great when I see them.

*You’ve been in Hawaii filming the final season of Lost – Hollywood must be pretty manic in comparison?

Yeah, but I’m such a homebody –I don’t like go to shopping where I know the paparazzi will be and I don’t eat in those kind of restaurants so you won’t see me dancing on tables or falling over outside clubs. I love staying at home with my girlfriends, watching a funny film like ‘Heathers.’

QUICK-FIRE QUESTIONS

*Ever been chatted up by another celeb?

-No!

*Who is the most famous person in you phone?

-I guess Rob’s is the obvious choice.

*Any red-carpet disasters?

-No, thanks God. But my tip would be please, whatever you’re wearing, wear underwear!

*What scares you?

-Mostly meeting people on your first day of work.

*What’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought in the past 12 month?

-I’m buying my mum a laptop so we can Skype to each other.

Here is another interview (i think Emilie gave it while she was in the UK):

CINEPLEX.COM Interview

Interview: Emilie de Ravin
She’s the One

It’s a big deal to be cast as Robert Pattinson’s first post-Twilight love interest, right? Tell that to Emilie de Ravin, who didn’t even realize he was Remember Me’s leading man until after she was hooked

By Marni Weisz

It’s as if Emilie de Ravin’s been stranded on a desert island for the past few years. How else can you explain the Australian actor’s complete naiveté about what she was getting into when she signed up for the romantic drama Remember Me…opposite Twilight’s Robert Pattinson?
“I, sort of, I guess I’d sort of heard about [Twilight],” the 28-year-old explains over the phone from her L.A. home. “But not being actively involved, you know, when it doesn’t affect you, you’re sort of out of the loop.”
Uh, sure.
To be fair, de Ravin was actually stranded on a desert island before she signed onto Remember Me last spring — caught up in her own pop-culture phenomenon, TV’s supernatural plane-crash drama Lost. She plays Claire, the young Australian who gave birth in the show’s first season, disappeared in the fourth season, but comes back — “in a very unexpected fashion,” she says — in the show’s sixth and final season, which is now airing.
And, it’s true, she did sign onto Remember Me late, just a couple of weeks before shooting began. “They originally had been looking for anyone but someone like me — the character was originally written Latina — so it was quite last minute that I signed on to this, and then it was this whirlwind from there,” she says. That whirlwind involved paparazzi pics of every touch she and Pattinson shared on set, which were then splashed across the web, and the inevitable rumours the pair was involved off-screen, too.
Still, it’s not like Pattinson signed on at the last minute. He’d been attached from the get-go. “I didn’t know that when I read it,” says de Ravin. “I just fell in love with the script.”
That script follows the unlikely romance between angst-ridden New Yorker Tyler (Pattinson, channelling James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause) and Ally (de Ravin), a girl with her own set of problems. Their relationship starts out on a dare after poor, misunderstood Tyler is arrested for mouthing off to a cop following a street fight. The real story is that Tyler was just coming to the aid of a guy in trouble, of course, but Officer Craig (Chris Cooper) doesn’t see it that way. So to get back at the cop, Tyler hits on his pretty daughter, and one thing leads to another, fireworks alight, breathing becomes laboured and a tortured romance blooms. Perfect.
“It’s basically a romantic tragedy,” says de Ravin. “It focuses a lot on family, the importance of living life to the fullest and realizing how important every moment is with the people you love.” 
De Ravin became the first woman Pattinson would love — on screen, anyway — since falling for Twilight’s moody human Bella (Kristen Stewart). Which meant fans, paparazzi and the gossip rags were going to be unusually interested in this little film. The cast and crew were surrounded by swarms of onlookers throughout the production, and since they were filming on the streets of New York, instead of some cozy, sequestered studio, the frenzy was almost impossible to control — making it hard to stay focused.
“I remember Rob and I were rehearsing a scene at night and we were walking around so it was very accessible for people, and photographers, to be filming and taking pictures,” says de Ravin. “We just sort of stopped and said, ‘Do you know what we’re doing right now?’ You become so self-conscious of what’s going on around you, and all these eyes on you, that you forget — ‘What scene are we doing again?’”
As for the unconfirmed rumours that de Ravin was romantically involved with Pattinson during the shoot (despite the unconfirmed rumours that Pattinson is involved with his Twilight leading lady Stewart; and the unconfirmed rumours that de Ravin reunited with her estranged husband, American actor Josh Janowicz), de Ravin declines comment.
“I just really don’t read any of that stuff and prefer not to talk about it because it’s not part of my job and not why I’m doing this,” she says. “People write what they want in the tabloid world. It doesn’t matter what you say, it’s probably more interesting, the things they write up, because my life’s really not that interesting [laughs].”

The Perfect Game Debuted at 25th International Congress in Lexington

Film Opens on April 16 and Stars Clifton Collins Jr., Cheech Marin, Emilie de Ravin, Jake T. Austin, Moises Arias, Jansen Panettiere, Ryan Ochoa, Patricia Manterola, and Louis Gosset Jr.
The Perfect Game, a feature film based on an extraordinary true story about the 1957 Monterrey Industrial Little League Baseball team will make its debut in an exclusive screening at the Little League International Congress on Saturday, March 13 at 8 p.m. in Lexington, Ky. at the Lexington Convention Center.
The Perfect Game hits theatres on April 16 and centers on the first International team to win the Little League World Series in 1957 -- a feat it repeated the following year. 
“We are very excited to bring this film first and foremost to the Little League International Congress,” U.S. distributor Richard Ham said. “A passion for baseball and a high regard for the Little League organization inspired these kids from Monterrey and brought them to the championship. We are pleased to share their story with this truly international institution.”
"This is one of the most inspiring ‘underdog’ stories. We were amazed that this story had never been told by Hollywood before,” Producer David Salzberg said. "We think The Perfect Game embodies all of the great values that Little League provides to young boys and girls throughout the world such as team work, courage, determination, and fair play. To be able to tell one of the all time great Little League stories is a real honor."
Living amidst the gritty poverty of 1957 Monterrey, Mexico, a rag–tag group of boys from the wrong side of the tracks discovers the joy of sandlot baseball under the guidance of Cesar, an aspiring Major League Coach thwarted by discrimination.
Armed with the dream of playing a real Little League game, the young players defy a total lack of resources, disapproving parents, and widespread prejudice to score their first Little League victory and find themselves at the beginning of a once-in-a-lifetime journey.
Relying on their faith, a warm-hearted priest and their love of the game, the nine players and their coach embark on an incredible, record-breaking winning streak that takes them across the border to America, and all the way to the 1957 Little League World Series where a miracle will cement their place in history and change their lives forever.
Many of the culminating scenes in the movie were filmed at Little League’s Western Region Headquarters in San Bernardino, Calif.
The Perfect Game features Clifton Collins Jr., Cheech Marin, Emilie de Ravin, and rising stars Jake T. Austin (Wizards of Waverly Place), Moises Arias (Hannah Montana), Jansen Panettiere (The X’s) and Ryan Ochoa (iCarly, Pair of Kings), as well as Patricia Manterola, and Louis Gosset Jr.
The Perfect Game was written by W. William Winokur and directed by William Dear (Angels in the Outfield, The Sandlot 3).
