Around the Town: Emery to walk the red carpet

CROSSVILLE — Crossville’s Julie Emery will be walking the red carpet this month at the premiere of an independent film in which she has a role. Emery, who attended South Cumberland Elementary and Cumberland County High School, is the female lead in the movie being released by Variance Films. It is called The History of Future Folk. She will walk the red carpet in New York May 31 and in Los Angeles June 7 when the film opens on the East and West Coasts.

According to the press release, History of Future Folk tells the hilarious (and possibly exaggerated) origin story of the real life alien bluegrass band, Future Folk, that has been charming New York City audiences with their live act for the better part of the decade. When a comet threatens to destroy their planet, the citizens of Hondo enlist their most decorated soldier to search for a new home planet.

Under the direction of J. Anderson Mitchell and Jeremy Kipp Walker, the cast also includes Nils d’Aulaire, Jay Klaitz, April Hernandez and Dee Snider. It is not yet rated but recommended for audiences age 13 and up. You may check out the film’s website at www.futurefolk.com or stop by the Facebook page at facebook.com/futurefolkmusic.

Emery said this film has so much heart and reminds her of some of her favorite movies growing up.  Crossville readers, Emery noted, will find Future Folk available On Demand and on iTunes, as of June 4, but the trailer is available on iTunes now and getting a ton of views.

Emery was a regular at the Cumberland County Playhouse before landing on the big screen in movies such as Hitch, Nothing but the Truth, Snow Wonder and 2013’s Movie 43. She has performed live on stage in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago and has numerous roles on television. My favorite is Jennifer Sampson in the critically acclaimed Line of Fire. She appeared in 13 episodes as an FBI agent in 2003-'04.

Emery is the daughter of Janice Fields and Gary Emery of Crossville.

  • Gypsy Rose to visit Fair Park

    The Cumberland County Playhouse is currently performing the award-winning Broadway play “Gypsy.” A great American story set during the 1920s fading vaudeville circuit, "Gypsy" portrays the rise of famed burlesque performer and stage mother Gypsy Rose Lee as she journeys across the country with her mother and sister during a time when Vaudeville was dying and burlesque was born. The complex character of Rose could be described as bold and brassy, as she steamrolls everyone in her way to turn her daughters June and Louise into child stars.
