Elisabeth and Andrew Shue conduct a "Star Search" to find an unknown young actress to star the lead role of "Gracie" based on Elisabeth's life
Elisabeth and Andrew Shue team up to conduct a nationwide star search to find an unknown young actress well suited to star as the soccer-playing lead of their upcoming film project "Gracie," which is based on Elisabeth's life. As what Elisabeth told The Associated Press, the inspiration of the film came from what it means to lose somebody you love.
Detailing on it Elisabeth said "In our case, it was once enough time from the devastation of losing our brother had passed. There was a gift he gave us, which was to follow your dreams and not waste time." Thus, the film takes place in New Jersey in the late 1970s will focuse on a girl who competes on an all-boys' soccer team, much as the "Cocktail" star did.
