Hey, look! Amityville news! We haven’t had much of that lately! This latest bit is for the Geoff Meed directed cinéma vérité style flick, Amityville Haunting. The first casting news is in. Read on for details.
From the Press Release
Luke Barnett (pictured right) has joined the cast of “AMITYVILLE HAUNTING”, the latest of the three Amityville-based films currently in development.
Producers are keeping the story under wraps, but we have gotten word that this will be a “found footage” film based on the Benson murders from the early 80’s. Production is currently under way in Los Angeles.
Director Geoff Meed wrote in to let us know that although the characters’ names are similar to the Benson murders (which was optioned by the original Amityville filmmakers back in 1986), there is NO relation to the actual people or events in his upcoming film. Confusing? Yeah, just a little.
Relatively unknown, Barnett has a list of movies slated for release this year including “STATIC” with Milo Ventimiglia, Sara Paxton, and Sarah Shahi, “SEDONA” with Frances Fisher, Beth Grant, and Lin Shaye, and “COFFIN” with Bruce Davison and Kevin Sorbo. Luke also previously appeared in “MAMA’S BOY” with Jeff Daniels and Diane Keaton.
Barnett is also currently on stage in Los Angeles every week playing 10 characters in “Bayside High School Musical”, a musical parody of the hit 90’s sitcom “Saved by the Bell”.
