A Grim Becoming, a new film from Adam R. Steigert that we’ve been keeping our eyes on, has found its leading man, and we have all the info for you right here.
From the Press Release:
DefTone Pictures Studios continues to put Buffalo, New York, on the map with its film productions. Currently in pre-production is the company’s next feature film: a horror comedy entitled A Grim Becoming, directed by Adam R. Steigert (Ombis 2013) and written by Steigert, Janeen Avery, Christopher Brechtel, and Mark Mendola.
DefTone’s search to find the actor to portray the lead character of Raphael is over. Raphael is a young, bitter executive who is on the verge of losing a multimillion dollar architectural deal when a sudden death in his family forces him to return to his home town of Metzburgh. With the role of Raphael depending a lot on an actor’s physical abilities, casting the role was a challenge. DefTone is proud to announce that Brandon Williams has signed on to play Raphael. Brandon is an actor who can hold his own with his comedic abilities, and he should take the character of Raphael to a new level.
As Raphael returns to Metzburgh, he experiences a life changing event: witnessing a Grim Reaper taking a soul. This sighting results in Raphael becoming a Reaper and having to explore his own conscience and the lengths he will go to get his own life back. But Death, played by Michael Sciabarrasi (Ombis, Black Guy on a Rampage: Homicidal Vengeance), has other plans for the naive young executive.
The official theatrical teaser trailer is set to be released in May 2013 and will feature a sneak-peek look at the character of “Death,” who goes by the more human name of Magoo. A Grim Becoming stars Brandon Williams, Britt Griffith, Devanny Pinn, Bill Oberst, Jr., Michael Sciabarrasi, Jessica Cameron, Melantha Blackthorne, Lynn Lowry, Patrick Mallette, Valerie Lynn Hanna, Melyssa Jade, Mike Sarcinelli, Christopher Brechtel, and Aryn Fitzgerald.
Principal photography on A Grim Becoming will start June 1st, and the film has a tentative release date of June 21, 2014.
