Riley Griffiths

Charles Super 8 Camera

The Group

Last year when I was in sixth grade I knew this kid named Riley Griffiths. I didn't know much about him, but I did know he was very animated and lively. Like someone you would see off of the Wiggles! During my going into 7th grade summer, he asked to hang out with me multiple times during the summer. It was always fun being around him and I enjoyed hanging out with him. He told me while we were hanging out that he was moving to Seattle, where his dad had found a new job. It was really sad to say goodbye. About 3 months later, he told me that he was going to be in a movie. I was shocked and for the longest time, didn't believe him. After several weeks past by, he showed me the trailer for the movie. Sure enough...There he was playing the second star in the movie. I was shocked and blown away! Who ever thought someone from Cedar City would be in a movie! I still thought it was cool, but little did I know.. the producer for the movie was STEVEN SPIELBERG. I was blown away! Riley plays a kid named Charles in the movie who wants to finish a movie he is making. He and I text frequently and he tells me all about the movie. I guess the time frame is during around 1979 when a group of friends in a small town in Ohio witness a catastrophic train crash while finishing a movie that one of the friends, Charles, is making (Riley). The soon suspect that the train wreck was NOT an accident. People start disappearing and weird events start happening. The local deputy tries to then uncover the truth. From that..(what he told me) it sounds like an awesome movie! I was planning on seeing it with my family, when plans changed!!!(: He text me and asked if I would go see it with him on opening night! How cool is that?!?! I get to sit next to a movie star and watch his movie sitting an inch away from him!. I couldn't say no to that! It comes out on June 10th and I am so excited! I will defiantly be posting pictures of him and I! Everyone needs to see it and root on for Charles/Riley! Its his first movie...but not his last according to him! Finally something huge happens in Cedar! Pictures will be soon!(: and videos are above!
