Brian Trenchard-Smith has a new film (his 41st or 42nd, I believe; the man works a lot), The Cabin, premiering on The Hallmark Channel this Saturday, July 30th. You’re gonna want to check it out, if you’re a fan of the man, but you don’t need me telling you that. Here’s Brian himself:
From a genre standpoint it’s my riff on those old fashioned 60′s blended family comedies like YOURS MINE AND OURS, and WITH SIX YOU GET EGGROLL. Lea Thompson is an absolute dream to work with.

Sounds cool. Here’s a promo:
