The last time we reported on Conshohocken native Aaron Scotti (pictured third from left above) he had returned to Conshohocken from Hollywood to promote a film he co-produced, Arctic, in the Philadelphia market.
He is back this week to promote a new film, The Peanut Butter Falcon, Scotti served as the executive producer of the film.
The Peanut Butter Falcon tells the story of a young man with Down syndrome named Zak who runs away from the residential nursing home where he lives to pursue his dream of attending a professional wrestling school. During the journey, he ends up traveling with Tyler, a small-time outlaw wanted by the police. While the two travel together they avoid capture, drink whiskey, find God, catch fish, and convince someone else to join them. The film stars Shia LaBeouf, Dakota Johnson, Zack Gottsagen, and Thomas Hayden Church.
Gypsy Saloon in West Conshohocken is holding an event, Producers with a Purpose, on Friday, August 16th starting at 6:00 p.m. There will be complimentary appetizers and a chance to meet Scotti. You are asked to RSVP via a Facebook event (event page).
