Greg Glienna Talks His Motivation Behind the Entertainment Industry:
New Movie Alert: THE ROAD DOG
Greg Glienna has written, directed and co-produced a new feature film called “The Road Dog“! The film, which is currently in post-production status, is a drama/comedy genre film starring actor Doug Stanhope as an alcoholic standup comedian, who gets a second chance in life when he reconnects with the son he’s never known.
EXCLUSIVE INSIDER: Greg, you have a new comedy – drama film “The Road Dog”. Can you give us a little insider on the making of the film and your experience on set ?
“This was exciting for me because it was the rebirth of my company CEM Productions LLC. I last used this company when I directed the low-budget, independent version of Meet the Parents,(which was seen and brought to Universal by Steven Sodgerberg and remade into the film the world knows.)
It’s always great to shoot in Chicago as well, people are friendly about taking over their establishments and THE ROAD DOG required winter scenes, so shooting in LA was not an option. We had a little trouble, our first producer came down with COVID and was hospitalized but we had a great Executive Producer (Kamron Leal), strong producers (Yasuein Paradise, Tony Boswell, Brian Hennigan, Doug Stanhope) and a hard working crew!!!!!!
I’m really happy with how the film is looking. I couldn’t have done it without them.
Doug Stanhope is going to surprise a lot of his comedy fans with what a GREAT actor he is. I hope his performance is recognized by the industry. We plan to have a World Premiere of The Road Dog in a film festival, TBA.”– GREG GLIENNA 2022
