SOMEONE LIKE YOU - The Feature Film
STARRING SARAH FISHER AND JAKE ALLYN, AND FEATURING LYNN COLLINS, ROBYN LIVELY AND BART JOHNSON IN KAREN KINGSBURY’S FIRST FEATURE FILM, SOMEONE LIKE YOU
Karen Kingsbury Productions announces SOMEONE LIKE YOU as the first novel to screen adaptation from the company. Starring Sarah Fisher (“Degrassi: The Next Generation.” ROXY) and Jake Allyn (NO MAN’S LAND, SWEET GIRL) and featuring Robyn Lively (“Cobra Kai”, TEEN WITCH), Lynn Collins (X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, JOHN CARTER), Bart Johnson (HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL, LITTLE WOMEN) and Scott Reeves (“The Young and the Restless,” “General Hospital”), SOMEONE LIKE YOU is a love story with redemptive themes of family reconciliation, sacrifice, and beauty from tragedy, and is based on Kingsbury’s popular New York Times bestselling book by the same name.
“The casting process was very competitive, so I am thrilled with the talented actors who will bring SOMEONE LIKE YOU to life,” Karen Kingsbury said. “This brilliant team resonated deeply with the script and understands the heartfelt and redemptive message of the story.”
Filming for SOMEONE LIKE YOU will begin in October in and around Nashville, with principal photography set to wrap in November and a tentative release planned for Fall 2023. The script was written by Kingsbury and Tyler Russell (Hallmark’s MAGGIE’S CHRISTMAS MIRACLE, Sony’s “A Thousand Tomorrows”), with Kingsbury executive producing and Russell directing.
“Every day is an adventure,” said Kingsbury. “Working with people who actually exist is very different than being buried in the pages of a novel. I’m loving it!”
Science raises questions only love can answer in this moving and thought-provoking story from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of “heart-tugging and emotional” (Romantic Times Book Reviews) life-changing fiction.
The film centers on a young woman with a beautiful life built on a lie who must sort out her past in order to fully embrace her future. Can she overcome and forgive the deception to reconcile with her family and accept the offer of unconditional love and healing?
SOMEONE LIKE YOU is working with the Tennessee Film Commission, and is one of a dozen or so films approved for a rebate for filming in the state of Tennessee.

“As I set out to create Karen Kingsbury Productions, I decided to make a concept film, something that would demonstrate the type of movie I want to produce. When it was finished, I was so impressed with the quality that I knew this short film would be so much more than merely a concept.” The film is currently under consideration by more than twenty national and international film festivals.
“In this drama, it was important to show many kinds of love, and the way people often move in and out of relationship. Music played in the wind on the day we shot this film, and I believe we found colors only God knows exist.” — Karen Kingsbury
