Liam McIntyre (Spartacus: War of the Damned, Hercules, Gears of War) and Academy Award® Nominee Harvey Keitel (Reservoir's Dogs, Taxi Driver, Dusk Till Dawn) will star in David Mahmoudieh's feature directorial debut See You Soon, alongside newcomer Jenia Tanaeva. 

Tanaeva also wrote the script with Mike Cestari and revisions by Joe Ballarini. The romantic drama is produced by Tanaeva and Monella Kaplan for eMotion Entertainment, with Alexander Mikhalskiy executive producing. 

See You Soon is a modern-day romance following a U.S. soccer star who, after suffering a career-threatening injury in the run-up to the 2018 World Cup, embarks on an unexpected journey of self-discovery and gives true love a chance.

The film also stars Poppy Drayton (Downton Abbey, The Little Mermaid), Oleg Taktarov (Predators, 15 Minutes), Spanish soccer legend Carles Puyol, and Larissa Malevannaya (Apostol). See You Soon is currently filming in locations throughout Europe and Russia. Producer Gabi Ilioiu and Iuliana Tarnovetchi's Alien Film Entertainment are handling the European production on location.

"This is a modern-day Cinderella story in the vein of Pretty Woman and An Affair to Remember," said Tanaeva. "I wanted to create a warm and heartfelt story about people and the power of love. I hope the movie will inspire men and women around the world to follow their dreams, believe in themselves and be courageous enough to take that first step."

McIntyre starred in Steven S. DeKnight's Spartacus: War of the Damned for Starz! and is currently in post-production on Loni Peristere's The Haunted for Syfy.

Keitel, who was nominated for an Academy Award® for his supporting role in Barry Levinson's Bugsy, is currently in pre-production on Martin Scorsese's The Irishman for Netflix and filming Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs alongside Scarlett Johansson, Tilda Swinton, Bryan Cranston and Ed Norton. 

Mahmoudieh has directed a number of acclaimed commercials and music videos, and is currently writing the superhero movie Worth for Star Trek creators Roddenberry Entertainment. See You Soon is his feature directorial debut.

McIntyre is represented by Independent Management Company and WME; Keitel is represented by ICM Partners, Cinéart and The Artists Partnership; and Mahmoudieh by Heroes And Villains.
