New York, NY — “Heaven’s Messenger”, Produced by Open Communications Inc., is a powerful faith-based film starring “Home Alone” and late actor John Heard, has been recently remastered and re-edited for the American, faith-based market. According to the film’s director Russell Emanuel, the film was recut in order to better highlight the film’s prescient and powerful faith-based message. Yet the film, shot in parts of New York and California, is now contending with “hidden” messages of its very own.
The film has been endorsed by the Dove Foundation, for audiences above twelve years old. According to producer and co-star Howard Nash, the cast never really understood the film’s powerful message of faith until the re-edit was completed in February. Nash went to school near Southeast Queens, New York.

According to Nash, “the film makes it clear: God does have a plan for us. And, like the Bible says, it makes clear that God speaks to us, whenever we want to know his will for our lives”.

Yet the film, or rather its team, must now grapple with a few “hidden” messages of its own. The film was initially turned down for a Dove Foundation rating after the re-edit was completed.

In response, Nash emailed the foundation and pleaded with them to reconsider. “I felt like they might have misunderstood the film’s most important message”, he said.

The very next day, Nash received a call from the Foundation’s Director. He informed Nash that they took another look at their decision, and decided to grant Nash the rating he sought.

Nash was grateful, and remarked how glad he was that he decided to email the Foundation.. whereupon the Director replied, “what email are you talking about?”. Apparently, the Director hadn’t checked his emails from the day before- but he was calling Nash to inform him of their decision without having looked at his prior messages.

After production wrapped, Emanuel and Nash became privy to a few more interesting nuances: their two lead actors, John Heard and Vincent Pastore, had worked together before on the HBO series, “The  Sopranos”, and their co-star, Hallie Eisenberg, appeared with Vincent Pastore in those iconic Pepsi  commercials of the 1990’s.

“Neither of us knew of, or remembered these dynamics until well-after production had ended”, says Nash. “To think, we worked with these guys for ten hours a day, and for  three straight weeks!

And we never knew they already had established relationships, long before we ever hired them. Nash quips, “our little film, mattered more than their history”.
