Exclusive: Nikki Reed Talks Joining Sleepy Hollow Season 3 as Betsy Ross

Published

on

Episode 3.02 of a revitalized “Sleepy Hollow” airs tonight, and in it we’ll get to see Betsy Ross, played by new series regular Nikki Reed, in a different light from what the history books tell us about her.  While chatting with Reed (best known for appearing in the Twilight films) about Thomas Dekker’s upcoming Jack Goes Home, which she’s co-producing and also co-starring in (look for our set visit report early next week), we asked about her experiences on the show so far.

Reed said of the character, “She’s very fun, she’s kind of… she’s the ‘Sleepy Hollow’ version of Betsy Ross so it’s not the Betsy Ross you might have read about; although of course there are some elements that are very true to whatever historical facts we have about Betsy Ross. She’s also kind of a sexy, edgy version of that. I’m also George Washington’s female spy; I’m in his spy ring so I get to sort of dress up and play different people while playing her at the same time, and it’s been quite an adventure, and she’s kind of the ‘ultimate woman’ is how I’d describe her.”

As for where the series, and her character, might go, Reed teased, “I’m kind of along for the ride, like everybody else. I think that it’s about adventure, and there is definitely a sense of humor, as we’ve seen in the past. It’s quirky and it’s fun, but it’s also… there’s a lot of action and a lot of adventure and a possible romance between the two [Betsy and Ichabod, played by Tom Mison].”

Be sure to tune in tonight for Episode 3.02, “Whispers in the Dark,” to see Nikki in action.

“Sleepy Hollow” Episode 3.02 – “Whispers in the Dark” (airs 10/8/15)
ABBIE AND CRANE FACE THEIR DEMONS – When Pandora (Shannyn Sossamon) uses her powers to unleash a new form of evil, Abbie (Nicole Beharies) and Crane (Tom Mison) are forced to face their pasts in unexpected ways.  Lyndie Greenwood co-stars as Jenny Mills.

Werewolf Short Werehouse Coming this Halloween

Published

on

Director Daniel Mark Young, you you may remember for the horror shorts Stranger, Night Terrors, and Run, is currently raising funds on Kickstarter to complete his latest ambitious project, the werewolf short Werehouse. Like most of Mark Young’s films, it will be penned by his frequent writing partner James Craigie.

As its name suggests, Werehouse will be a werewolf tale set inside, you’ve guessed it, a warehouse. A group of students seek refuge in the storage facility to escape from a violent protest, but they find that they may be in even greater danger after discovering that a ravenous beast may be trapped inside with them. The short will star Amy Tyger, Harriet Rees, Oliver Roy, and Derek Nelson.

Werehouse will be shot in black and white, although the filmmakers are using a special technique to isolate the color red in order to highlight the copious amounts of blood shown onscreen. Should the funding be successful, filming is expected to commence in April, and the film will be released on Amazon Instant Video this Halloween.

Los Angeles Overnight – Do Us a Favor and Watch This Exclusive Clip

Published

on

Weird. That’s exactly what this exclusive clip from the indie flick Los Angeles Overnight is, and we’re ready to share every pixel of it with ya! Why? Because we like weird. A lot.

The directorial debut of filmmaker Michael Chrisoulakis will launch a limited national, theatrical release on March 9, followed by a digital release through Freestyle Digital Media on March 20.

Synopsis:
Inspired by the L.A. Modern Noir genre and populated with distinct and dynamic characters, Arielle Brachfeld (Consumption) stars as Priscilla, a struggling actress who inherits a bevy of colorful villains after desperation drives her and her gullible boyfriend, a lovelorn mechanic (Azim Rizk, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk), to steal big from the Los Angeles underworld.

No amount of preparation could ever prepare this actress for a blood-soaked role filled with seedy criminals and “hot loot.” Entirely shot in Los Angeles, the cast is appropriately peppered with titans of the Hollywood scene including Peter Bogdanovich, Sally Kirkland, and recent CineAsia Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Lin Shaye.

Insidious Composer Joseph Bishara’s Score for The Worthy Being Released Tomorrow

Published

on

Tomorrow will see the digital release of the original soundtrack for The Worthy, a post-apocalyptic thriller that was one of the largest Arabic genre film productions in the Middle East. Featuring music by Joseph Bishara (Insidious, The Conjuring), the album will be released via the composer’s label, void recordings. Pre-orders are already open on Bandcamp.

Bishara explains, “Going into this, it was clear that [director] Ali [Mostafa] didn’t want a necessarily Middle Eastern sound though the film is of the region. He described it as taking place in a world after extremism, a relatable and possibly devastating scenario.

The composer adds, “Thematically the film deals with personalities that emerge through orchestrated chaos and how various types handle danger and adversity. There is a clear path for the hero to rise out of the situation, and his musical journey was worked backwards starting with the final scene, then deconstructing into the earlier setup.

The Worthy was directed by Ali F. Mostafa and written by Vikram Weet. It stars Ali Suliman, Maisa Abd Elhadi, Mahmoud Al Atrash, Samer Ismail, and Habib Ghuloom.
