Two new projects that we learned about this week have something else in common besides being written by Brian Pickard and co-starring Melinda Chilton: Soap opera heartthrob Sean Kanan (“The Bold and the Beautiful”, “The Young and the Restless”) has joined the casts of both.
The films, slated to shoot this summer in New England, also share producer Pietro D’Alessio of Alexius Omnimedia, who is partnering with Breaking Waves Entertainment’s Bradley Hvolbeck, Jr., on Watch Island (being directed by Matt Zettell) and Pickard’s Penobscot Films on Slayers! (being directed by Kevin MacDonald).
Kanan will play the role of producer Ryan Terriault in Watch Island. The project is described as “Big Brother” meets Friday the 13th and is a 1980’s throwback with a ghost hunting twist. The proposed franchise introduces a new iconic killer known as “The Cameraman”.
In horror comedy Slayers! Kanan will portray an 1800’s baron. The film revolves around four friends who band together to save one of their own when their small town is threatened by a very real vampire.
