The movie was shot in South Florida at the beginning of the year under the production guidance of Nicole Abisinio, who created a new company – Gabriel's Messenger's Films – for which The Investigator will hopefully be but the first of a number of family-friendly spiritual tales. A portion of any proceeds from the movie will be donated to charity.
From cop to coach
Romano was a technical advisor on Everybody Loves Raymond, also popping up in the odd episode of the long-running CBS series (“Golf For It,” Just a Formality,” “The Toaster”). He also had a small role in his younger brother's 2004 feature comedy Welcome to Mooseport.
Now, in his mid-50s, Richard A. has his first official screenwriting credit. Equally intriguing is the fact that the actor playing his Investigator namesake – Sergeant James Buanacore – is Wade Williams (pictured), a long-time LA musician and composer making his lead debut in the film. Romano has a small cameo in the film, and there is also a younger brother character portrayed by an actor who actually looks remarkably like a younger Ray. Watch the trailer here.
