Filming kicked off yesterday, July 1st, in Texas on Blanc/Biehn Productions’ remake of Hidden in the Woods helmed by director Patricio Valladares, who also directed the original, and we have some exclusive behind-the-scenes images to share.
Hidden in the Woods is a remake of the 2012 Chilean horror film En las afueras de la ciudad. The story follows two sisters raised by their abusive father in a remote locale who must answer to their drug baron uncle when their father is imprisoned.
Michael Biehn stars alongside William Forsythe. Jennifer Blanc-Biehn produces with Loris Curci; Hackybox Pictures recently joined the project as a producer as well. The film’s co-stars include MMA fighter Krzysztof Soszynski, Chris Browning (“Sons of Anarchy,” The Book of Eli), Ricco Ross (Aliens), Jeannine Kaspar (“House of Lies,” “Nip/Tuck”), Andy Mackenzie (Sushi Girl, “True Blood”), Electra Avellan (Grindhouse, Machete Kills), Mark Burnham (Wrong, Wrong Cops), Jennifer Blanc (The Victim, Wrong Cops), and Richard Gunn (“Granite Flats,” “Dark Angel”) along with Caitlin Keats (Broken English, Kill Bill Volume 2, Treachery), Mark Gantt (The Night Visitor, Among Friends), Evie Louise Thompson (The Call, Heebie Jeebies), Nick Bateman (Hobo With a Shotgun), Cody Hackman (Tapped), Grace Powell (Jacob), Larry Carroll (Dark Horse, Jacob), Cheryl Hawker (“My Name Is Earl”), and Greg Ingram (Machete).
Thanks to photographer James C. Weems for the stills. Look for lots more soon as we’ll be following the progress of the film from start to finish.
“We feel this story needs to be told,” producer Jennifer Blanc-Biehn said previously. “It’s based on a true criminal case. Three out of every four women are abused throughout the world so we hope to be able to not only tell a story but also donate some of the proceeds to a few women’s charities to stop the violence.”
Hidden in the Woods tells the story of two sisters who have been raised in isolation, subjected to the torment of their abusive, drug dealing father. When they finally decide to report him to the police, he kills the two officers and is put in jail. But things go from bad to worse when the girls must answer to their Uncle Costello, a psychotic drug kingpin, who shows up looking for his missing merchandise which is hidden in the woods.
