Alison Sweeney fans loved her latest movie, The Wedding Veil Journey. But they’ve also been waiting a long time for a new mystery movie starring the Hallmark star. Sweeney recently gave fans reason to keep hoping.
In an interview with TV Insider, Sweeney announced that she will star in a new mystery film. But beyond that, she didn’t reveal many details. She was asked if fans will get any new mysteries from her.
Sweeney replied, “Yes, you will. I can’t reveal too much information, but I’m working on something right now.”
Sweeney has starred in both Chronicle Mysteries and the mystery series Hannah Swensen. She told TV Insider that she can’t say which series she’ll be in.
“I can’t,” she said. “If I have permission, I will tell you. I’m so excited.”
Sweeney’s latest mystery film was Sweet Revenge: A Hannah Swensen Mystery, which premiered in 2021. The first five films in the series were called Murder She Baked, and the new film premiered under a different name.
In an interview with TV Goodness, Sweeney said the film was renamed because this time there were different people and executives involved. She added that since there are 28 books in the Swensen series, there is still a lot of room to grow.
In a promotional video, Sweeney assured fans that their favorite characters were the same, even though the name changed.
Then, in late 2022, Sweeney signed a multi-picture deal with Hallmark. Her first film that was part of her new deal was A Magical Christmas Village with Luke Macfarlane.
In an interview with TV Shows Ace after announcing her new deal in late 2022, she answered questions about making more films with either of her two mystery film franchises.
Sweeney said: “I have to tell you, if it’s even possible, I’d love to make something like this happen. I love doing the mysteries. So I’m always open to that… They’re my favorites.”
Then she was asked if she and Melissa Salmons, who wrote A Magical Christmas Village and worked with Sweeney on Chronicle Mysteries, could do an all-new mystery series with Sweeney.
Sweeney just said, laughing, “Maybe we’ll… Maybe…”
She also spoke to TV Insider about “The Wedding Veil Journey,” which premiered on Jan. 22. She said her favorite scene for the film was the day they were filmed in Anthony Quinn Bay.
“It was this beautiful little cove and it’s supposed to be the view you see from the hotel you’re staying in when you see the scenes above the bar,” she said. “Herbst and Lacey and I couldn’t take it how spectacular this view was. It was just so beautiful but it was quite high above the actual beach. And so, in a break between scenes, we took off our high heels and ran down those rickety stairs to take photos on the beach, which all three of us are now using together.”
She said the producers asked them to slow down and be careful, but they had a lot of fun with their impromptu photoshoot.
