Local Movie Producer's Film to Hit Theaters Sept. 5

He's made a living in Corpus Christi working in the oil and gas business, and now Michael Johnson is taking on another challenge.

Johnson said he has lived his entire adult life in Corpus Christi, started his own company and raised his a family here, but now he has found another passion. He is now the executive producer of a movie called "The Identical," which is set to release nationwide on Sept. 5.

"It's about identical twins separated at birth and one is adopted," Johnson said. "Neither knows that, and without telling the whole story, it's a story about one of the twins, his life as he sees his famous brother unfold in front of his eyes and doesn't know it's his brother."

"The Identical" features well-known actors like Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd. It takes place in the 1930s through the 70s.

Johnson said that when he saw the script, he knew he had to be a part of it.

"I was exposed to the movie about four years ago," Johnson said. "Having never been in the movie business, I wasn't really looking to get in. It was a story that really spoke to me. I thought it was a great story and I was hooked immediately."

Johnson said "The Identical" is a movie for everyone in the family.
