Default Assassins (2012)

So, I'm back with another project....

Muse is still happening. I swear. We just have to raise a whole bunch more money than we thought, so I've got an exec producer running around grabbing funds. While we were waiting, we made another short entitled, "Assassins"...

Trailer:



And, then the reviews started coming in. Those were good. Then the lead, who some of you might know from Nude Nuns with Big Guns, Dismal and maybe even that creepy viral campaign from Facebook called: Take This Lollipop, came to me and asked if we could turn it into a feature.

So, me being the whore to make stuff that I am, decided that we had to make this thing, and make it now. I went to everyone's favorite BD resident, DaveG, and convinced him (he already co-wrote Muse with me) to create this one too. Bam. We had a story. And, just like that we had a script. Now we're almost done casting, locked in most of the post team (some of whom have worked on some major films that you folks have probably seen) and locations are 99% there. Unlike Muse, we're doing this by begging and out of pocket costs.

We go into production the middle of February. More info as it happens...

For people that need to know more...this is Bill Oberst Jr. (one of the leads) doing his thing:

I seriously have to get better at whoring our films out. I really do. But somehow I know that if I just wait long enough, you'll do it for me.

Quick update #4 of a billion:

Spent 12+ hours this weekend casting for the film. We had some fantastic actors come in and some individuals that really didn't seem to capture what we were looking for in the film. It's too bad, because, as storytellers, we want everyone to do well and really bring the characters to life. But, it just can't happen every time.

We have a few solid leads for the third lead and one of the two minor characters in the film. Which makes me feel so much better as we are shooting in less than a month!

Coming up next, a meeting with a couple VFX people this week to discuss gunshots and wounds as well as a follow up with my make up person (also a great friend) who worked on such films as Hellboy and others. No it's not the HEAD person, but she's put in a ton of time on major projects and that will bring a nice professional feel to our aftermath shots.

More as it comes...

Just read the synopsis quite intriguing, hope everything works out for you. Look forward to seeing more. BTW, the lead has got a lot character.

Thanks! Yes. Bill is an amazing actor. He's doing really well for himself in the low budget horror realm, but I think he could really break out from the generic "psycho killer" role.

Absoutely, you don't want to be type-cast. I think he would do well as the down-at-heel journalist or P.I. in a noir/horror. Even as an lovecraftain unfortunate narrator, one that's seen The Horror. He's got that weathered, haunted look to him. He would even fit well as a tortured and obsessed Ahab type of monster hunter ( supernatural or natural kind).

The noir thing is exactly what I'm thinking. We're doing this series based on his character from my short, but we're definitely considering a hard-boiled film down the way, along with some bigger horror films.
