Independent Canadian film studio Foresight Features has teamed up with celebrated author Tony Burgess in a deal that includes three exciting new genre projects, and we have the skinny on a couple right here including Ejecta!

From the Press Release
Following on the heels of its award-winning 2011 films Monster Brawl and Exit Humanity, independent Canadian film studio Foresight Features has teamed up with celebrated author Tony Burgess in a deal that includes three exciting genre projects produced in 2012 and set to premiere and release worldwide in 2013.

The first film in this all-Canuck collaboration is the gripping sci-fi chiller EJECTA, directed by Foresight filmmaker Matt Wiele from a script by Burgess, which wrapped production in mid-May 2012. The company is also teaming up with Burgess for a Gothic horror throwback directed by John Geddes (Exit Humanity) set for production in July and a survival horror nightmare directed by Jesse Thomas Cook (Monster Brawl) that goes to camera in September. Foresight owners Cook, Geddes and Wiele will executive produce the three-film slate with fellow filmmakers Cody Calahan and Chad Archibald (Neverlost) on board as producers.

Tony Burgess is the author of Pontypool Changes Everything, which he adapted into a script for Bruce McDonald’s cult masterpiece Pontypool in 2008. He has been developing Pontypool II with McDonald, which was recently selected as one of Fantasia International Film Festival’s Frontieres Co-Production Market projects. Last year he released the book People Live Still at Cashtown Corners, published by Chizine. And his latest book, Idaho Winter, was nominated for the Trillium award, Ontario’s most prestigious writing accolade.

“Tony lives in the next town over and we’ve all been friends for years so it was inevitable that we’d finally be working together on something. We’re all very excited to be collaborating with the madman genius of Tony Burgess. He is quite possibly the leading horror author writing in Canada today and certainly the most bizarre. We hope to harness his morbid energy and capture his sharp-tongued wit in three unique cinematic visions.”
-Jesse Thomas Cook
Foresight Director/Producer

“The Foresight crew are smart and restless professionals who wanna do some damage. I’m just along for the wild ride.”
-Tony Burgess
Author/Screenwriter

The first of these films is EJECTA, starring Julian Richings, from such cult classics as Cube and Hard Core Logo, alongside newcomer Adam Seybold, who delivered a standout performance in Exit Humanity, and marks the directorial debut of Foresight producer Matt Wiele.

EJECTA is the terrifying story of two men whose lives cross paths on a fateful night during a solar storm. A terrifying presence besieges the men on a remote farm, triggering an intense struggle to survive the night. During the attack the men discover a truth that will change the way we look at the universe.

Charles Manson. The name alone lives on in infamy even long after his physical remains lay rotting… and rightly so. A new docudrama entitled Charles Manson: The Final Words is on its way, and we have new details and behind-the-scenes imagery for you. Check it out!

The flick made its premiere on the REELZ Channel, and Breakthrough Entertainment has announced that they’ve acquired worldwide distribution rights to the project that features narration from Rob Zombie and is home to the final interview given by America’s most notorious and now deceased cult-leader and mass murderer, Charles Manson.

The opportunity that we have to offer this distinct and truly unique documentary to our international clients is beyond exciting for Breakthrough Entertainment,” said Craig McGillivray, Vice President, Distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment. “We are continuously focused on sourcing captivating new premium content that pushes the envelope and generates mass attention such as this amazing film from James Buddy Day and Pyramid Productions.

The two-hour film narrated by musician Zombie focuses on the so-called Manson family murders told from Manson’s perspective using never-before-seen case files, pictures, and exclusive interviews with Manson himself from inside California State Prison. The feature documentary reveals new details that unveil the true story and motives behind the grisly murder spree. The audio used in the doc contains the last recorded interviews with the infamous killer conducted by director and producer James Buddy Day.

It has been a truly distinct project for us and an experience that very few producers encounter. This film has the potential to captivate global audiences, and we are very excited to have Breakthrough Entertainment on board to share this one-of-a-kind documentary,” says James Buddy Day, Executive Producer at Pyramid Productions.

Look for more on this one soon!
