Remember American Idol 10 contestant, Chris Medina? He had a really intense backstory that involved his wife, Juliana, who was gravely injured in a car accident. But despite injuries that left her unable to walk or talk, he stayed by her side.
Juliana even accompanied him to his audition. And in a controversial and/or touching moment (fan opinion was really divided here), Chris brought her in to meet the judges panel during his audition.
Three years later, Juliana, is well enough to blog, and she reveals that there is a movie in the works based on their love story. She quotes an official from the production company set to release the film:
I am excited to announce a new division of MCS41: ‘Motion Picture Production’. This new division has major projects in the works utilizing only the best producers, directors and actors. The first major movie deal MCS41 has signed is a feature entitled “What Are Words” (production and distribution); this will be a wide release slated 2014. This movie will be based upon Chris Medina (finalist of American Idol) and Juliana’s story. This is the only feature film ever to include rights of the American Idol show. There will be many stars attached to this project. A national concert featuring Chris Medina, with famous named guest artist(s), (45 markets minimum) will kick off the viral marketing of this release to promote the film. The last concert will be on Hollywood Blvd, in front of The Chinese Theater, where the premiere will be held. Juliana will also be receiving significant support as a result of this project that will assist her to lead the best possible life that she can. “
“What are Words” is the name of the song Chris released soon after he was cut at the Top 24 (no, he never got to sing for America’s vote). The production company making the film is a new division of a firm, MCS41, that does film distribution and marketing, plus 2nd unit work for action movies.
What do you think? Are you interested in a movie made of Chris and Juliana’s love story?
