Interview With 'Expecting Amish' Director, Richard Gabai

EXPECTING AMISH” is the story of four Amish teenagers who are given permission to leave their Pennsylvania homes for Rumspringa where they discover an amazing new world, but when it is over they have to make the difficult decision to stay or return home

Starring Jesse McCartney (“ARMY WIVES,” “YOUNG AND HUNGY”), AJ Michalka (“THE GOLDBERGS”), Jean-Luc Bilodeau (“BABY DADDY”), Alyson Stoner (“STEP UP”), Brian Krause (“CHARMED”) and Ron Ely (“TARZAN”) Premiering Saturday, July 19, 8PM ON LIFETIME.

(L - R Jesse McCartney, Richard Gabai, AJ Michalka)

I had an opportunity to chat with director Richard Gabai about his film, 'Expecting Amish'

You have established yourself as an expert at crafting suspenseful thrillers with spine tingling twists. Expecting Amish is your first romantic drama. Did you approach directing Expecting Amish any differently than your previous works?

Good question. The short answer is yes. With "Expecting Amish" our job is to build dramatic tension and emotion - as opposed to the type of suspense we hope to create in a traditional thriller. The approach is a bit different - we want the audience not only to identify with one or more of the characters, but we want them to develop an emotional bond. We want them to care. Enough can't be said about something that hasn't changed - and that is my team; Michael Amato and John Constantine producing along side me, Scott Peck as my Director of Photography, Katie Boyum Operating Camera (and Directing some 2nd Unit this time) and Jeff Murphy Editing and supervising the post. Sean Murray again provided the score and this one I do believe is his finest.

What was it about Expecting Amish’s story that spiked your interest and made it the first romantic drama you choose to direct?

I hadn't actually thought about that until you, and some of your fellow journalists brought it to my attention. So I guess it chose me - I just love the characters and the story. I am very pro-romance - with or without the drama :-)

How much did you know about the Amish culture before you began production?

Not too much, but I've always been fascinated with the culture. It was really important to me that we didn't tell a story that was insulting or disrespectful to the Amish culture, and I think we accomplished that; though that's a theory that will go untested as we will have very few if any Amish viewers :-)

All your films have exceptional casting; their people who not only draw audiences but bring solid talent to the table. Did you have a say in the casting process?

100%. Casting is everything. I am very involved and I take my hat off to my Casting Director Don Carol who continues to bring me the greatest people. If I don't have the right actors there's just no point to making the film.

Where there certain actors you hand in mind for the parts in this film?

Before we began the process only one. I had met Ron Ely at a charity event and he was a childhood hero of mine as TVs Tarzan. We had a great conversation and he said if I ever came across something special he'd consider coming out of retirement. Ron hadn't done a movie in almost 20 years. He is amazing as "The Elder" of our Amish community, and I think his fans will be thrilled to see him again!

You have been writing and recording songs since the beginning of your career. Two of your lead cast members, Jesse McCartney (Josh) and AJ Michalka (Hannah) are both musicians. Did you chat with them about music during filming?

We did a lot more than that! "Punch Drunk Recreation" a cut from Jesse's soon to be released album (July 22) is on the soundtrack and plays when we meet "Josh," Jesse's character. We also have a track "Welcome to the Majors" from cast member and recording artist Alyson Stoner, who plays "Mary." And yes there are also two of my tracks on the soundtrack, "Tonight is a Brand New Day," and "Buddah in a Banzai."

What do hope the audience takes away from watching Expecting Amish?

First of all I hope people are entertained. If they can take away the idea that it's okay to be different, I'll consider that a bonus.
