IS THERE A FUTURE BEYOND THE FINISH LINE?

LEA THOMPSON GOES "BACK TO THE FUTURE" FOR A CELEBRATED ANNIVERSARY, NOW STARS IN "THE CABIN," A HALLMARK MOVIE CHANNEL ORIGINAL FILM PREMIERING SUMMER 2011

Lea Thompson ("Jane Doe," "Caroline in the City"), who recently returned from a whirlwind worldwide celebration of the 25th anniversary of "Back to the Future," has joined the cast of "The Cabin," the Hallmark Movie Channel Original Film premiering Summer 2011. The movie, which co-stars Steven Brand ("Covert Affairs") is currently in production in Ireland.

American Lily MacDougal (Thompson) and Conor MacDougal (Brand) of Ireland are single parents who share the same surname, but have little else in common. Lily and Conor have each brought their children to Scotland to enter a national Clan MacDougall-type affair called the "Meeting of the Macs." But when a careless booking agent accidentally assigns Lily's family and Conor's to the same cabin, a civil war ensues reminiscent of the War of Scottish Independence. Through a series of mishaps, Lily and Conor are reminded that sharing the same cabin means they must enter the race as a single team, which further means they will need to get along in order to get ahead and win. Will the warring "Macs" set aside personal differences for the greater good, or will it take another Treaty of Edinburgh to bring peace back to the tiny Scottish hamlet?

"The Cabin" is being produced by Big Apple Productions. Mary Callery is the executive producer; Peter Norris is the producer. Brian Trenchard-Smith is directing from a script written by Gary Goldstein ("The Wish List").
