Today marks the 15th Anniversary of what is not only one of Shane’s most notable and well known roles, but also a timeless love story, A Walk to Remember and the internet is abuzz with nostalgic feelings for the film and the two leading stars! To celebrate, both Entertainment Tonight and Entertainment Weekly both posted videos which you can check out below, with some clips of Shane and Mandy discusses what it was like having to kiss each other back in 2002 when promoting the movie. But make sure to read the interview they did with EW recently, as great read for any fan as they play games guessing what line comes next and discuss what it was like working with one another.
This November Shane is going to be attending the Napa Valley Film Festival where his film, Here Alone, will be having a screening over 3 days from Thursday November 10 – Sunday November 12. The official Facebook page for Napa Valley Film Festival posted that Shane will be one of the notable guests in attendance so hopefully we will get more news on what day/days he is expected to attend as the festival draws closer.
Notable celebrities expected to attend include Lee Daniels, Viggo Mortensen, Dev Patel, Kurt Russell, Zoey Deutch, Glen Powell, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jessica Biel, Ian Bohen, Josh Charles, Aaron Eckhart, Gordon Getty, Meredith Hagner, Katie Holmes, Sam Huntington, Sam Jaeger, Alex Karpovsky, Rose Leslie, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Joel David Moore, Matt Ross, Wyatt Russell, Shane West, Madeline Zima and many more.

You can now find DVD captures of Shane as Bo in “The Elder Son” from 2006 in the gallery. It is a really fun film, very enjoyable so if you haven’t already I recommend you to check it out. It is available on Amazon US, unfortunately not the UK site – but if you know of anywhere else let me know.
Great news everyone – Shane’s film Here Alone is getting a worldwide release early next year! Congratulations to everyone involved!
Here Alone, which won the Audience Award at Tribeca earlier this year after world premiering in the fest’s Midnight section, has landed at Vertical Entertainment. The worldwide rights deal for Rod Blackhurst’s post-apocalyptic thriller comes ahead of the pic’s screening this weekend at Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival. An early 2017 theatrical release is planned.
“Here Alone is a quietly haunting thriller that resonates with moviegoers everywhere, as shown by the Audience Award at Tribeca,” said Vertical co-president Rich Goldberg. “We are very proud to work with such talented filmmakers on a global release.”
Noah Lang, Ebeltoft, Blackhurst, Arun Kumar and Josh Murphy produced the pic, which is executive produced by Kevin Iwashina, Marc Bortz, Anthony Gentile, John Gentile, Kanwaldeep Kalsi, Nalit Patel, Paul Ebeltoft, Gail Ebeltoft, Sinan Germirli, Leigh Jones, Ian Keiser, Paul Pathikal, Bradley J. Ross, Brendan Walsh, and Eric Schultz.
The deal was negotiated by Goldberg and Peter Jarowey at Vertical, with Bortz and Iwashina from Preferred Content and attorney George Rush on behalf of the filmmakers.
Great news – Here Alone will be heading to the St Lawrence Film Festival this September as they are set to receive a special honour. Let’s hope that Shane attends!
