Pelican Books and Actor Corbin Bernsen Adapt Film “Rust” to Book


Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award Nominated Actor, Corbin Bernsen, best known for his role in the T.V. show, “L.A. Law” is set to debut his first book on October 15, 2015. Bernsen appeared in the 2010 movie “Rust” as the lead character James Moore (he also served as writer and director). Moore, a pastor who left his post for a new calling when he returned to his hometown after decades away.


“I really found my voice in that film,” Bernsen says. “I was really looking for a greater meaning, a greater purpose, in life…to be able to expand on that in a novel just became an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.” With the film “Rust”, Bernsen shifted his focus to family friendly movies and formed Home Theater Films. Bernsen’s latest film project, Christian Mingle , was released in January 2015 by Capitol. Bernsen lives in Los Angeles with his wife of 26 years, actress Amanda Pays, and their four sons.

Rust: The Novel is the plight of one pastor’s crisis of faith and the struggle to save his friend’s life and restore hope to a floundering community. Readers will be getting a “better, fuller, richer story in the novel,” says Bernsen. “I was able to expand more intelligently, more interestingly, on some of the original themes and concepts in the film.”

I will be bringing you a complete review of the book very soon, as I was gifted a preview copy BUT – they are also allowing me to enter one or two of my readers into their “Win it before you can buy it” contest. So…if you would like a copy of Rust: The Novel contact me! (The book will come directly from the publishing company, not from me.)
