Columbia Pictures presents an Act III Production of a Rob Reiner Film, "Stand By Me," which opens _______________ at the _______________ Theater. Starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell and Kiefer Sutherland, this is the story of four boys who set out on a two-day adventure with dreams of becoming town heroes and find themselves tested in ways they had never imagined. Richard Dreyfuss makes a special appearance as The Writer who narrates the story.

Director Rob Reiner, no stranger to youthful story material, brought special sensitivity to the screenplay of Raynold Gideon and Bruce A. Evans based on the novella, "The Body," by renowned author Stephen King. Andrew Scheinman produced with Evans and Gideon.

Unlike anything we have come to expect on film from Stephen King, this autobiographically inspired tale of a quartet of boys coming of age in a small town powerfully mixes drama, suspense, adventure, comedy and introspection. The grown-up writer relates his memories of his adolescent adventures with three friends in their hometown of Castle Rock in 1959. For several days, they had been following news reports about a 12-year-old boy who went hunting for blueberries in the woods and hadn't been seen since. One of the group had overheard his brother reveal that he and a friend had discovered the boy's body in the deep woods, alongside railroad tracks. Since the gruesome discovery was made while the youths were joyriding in a stolen car, they pacted to keep their find a secret. The foursome set out to find the body; "Stand By Me" is their story.

Columbia Pictures presents an Act III Production of a Rob Reiner Film, "Stand By Me," starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell and Keifer Sutherland, and also starring Richard Dreyfuss as The Writer. Directed by Rob Reiner from a screenplay by Raynold Gideon & Bruce A. Evans, based upon the novella, "The Body," by Stephen King, the film was produced by Andrew Scheinman, Bruce A. Evans and Raynold Gideon. Music is by Jack Nitzsche.
