Stonecutter Media is ramping up for the September 22, 2023, premiere of Condition of Return in North American theaters and on Cable VOD and Vudu.

The drama, directed by Tommy Stovall from a script by John Spare, stars AnnaLynne McCord (68 Kill, 90210), Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, God’s Not Dead), Natasha Henstridge (Species, Diggstown), and James Russo (Django Unchained, Not a Stranger). The film has also announced it has entered into an interim agreement with SAG-AFTRA, allowing talent to promote the independent film and attend events for it.

SYNOPSIS

McCord, who plays Eve Sullivan, a churchgoing schoolteacher arrested for committing a mass shooting, says, “While I continue to stand in solidarity with my fellow SAG members, this film has been such a passion project of mine from the start, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be able to promote such a timely and important message.”

At the heart of Condition of Return is a question: what happens if you get what you wished for? As Eve explores the answer, she encounters supernatural elements that are grounded in realism. The Devil, with whom Eve makes a deal to reclaim her life, is disguised as an actual person, as is God. The supernatural is implied, allowing viewers to find their own meaning and answers to the film’s questions.

The Devil, with whom Eve makes a deal to reclaim her life, is disguised as an actual person, as is God. The supernatural is implied, allowing viewers to find their own meaning and answers to the film’s questions.

When we were casting Condition of Return, everything depended on finding the right actress to play ‘Eve,'” Stovall says. “We admired AnnaLynne and her performance in Excision, so much so that I gave her manager the script and extended an offer. Only one day later, we learned that she wanted to do it. We were very fortunate to have an actress who could not only play a very complicated character but also make the audience empathize with her and care about her. She was excellent at hitting the right emotion at the right time.”

Stovall is equally complimentary of Cain, who “knocked it out of the park with bringing out the subtle emotions of Dr. Thomas,” and co-star Natasha Henstridge, who plays Liza, a pivotal character. “Natasha was phenomenal, especially since all of her scenes had to be shot in one day,” Stovall reveals. “It was so exciting to see her bring her character to life. Really, all three actors brought so much more to Condition of Return than we ever expected and were a joy to have on set.”

The script’s focus on authentic characters and realism meant that despite the supernatural theme, the production crew did not have to contend with many special effects.

Instead, the suspense is largely psychological, which fit in with the independent film’s limited budget and resources. Sound was also used to build tension, including the incorporation of the subtle hum of a Coke machine throughout the movie to signify a spiritual presence.

“We also tapped composer Ceiri Torjussen to create our musical score,” Stovall states. “His unique style and intuitiveness helps give Condition of Return its overall aesthetic.”

Stovall and the film’s production team invite everyone interested in deep questions to turn out for the September 22, 2023, release of Condition of Return.

“What if after you sold your soul, you decided you wanted it back?” he asks. “While we want audiences to be entertained, first and foremost, we hope that people talk about the bigger meaning of Condition of Return. Remember: be careful what you wish for because there’s always a cost when you get what you want.”
