Corbin Bernsen is hoping to make a film about the All-American Soap Box Derby.
The LA Law actor is looking for investors to make a movie about the derby, which is struggling financially at the moment.
He needs about one million US dollars to finance the film - titled 25 Hill - and is pledging to share the profits with the annual Ohio derby.
He plans to shoot part of the movie during this summer's race, which attracts about 600 racers and their families.
The non-profit derby has gone two years without a corporate sponsor, and an Ohio bank is suing the organisation to repay a 580,000 dollar loan.
