[January 23, 2010]  AKRON, Ohio (AP) -- Corbin Bernsen is hoping to help the financially struggling All-American Soap Box Derby.

The "L.A. Law" actor is seeking investors to make a movie about the derby, which is held every year in Akron, Ohio. He needs about $1 million to finance the project, in which some of the proceeds would go to the derby.

ernsen was in the city Thursday talking to potential investors about his screenplay, "25 Hill." Plans call to shoot part of the movie during this summer's race, which attracts about 600 racers and their families.

The nonprofit derby has gone two years without a corporate sponsor, and an Ohio bank is suing the organization to repay a $580,000 loan.
