In preparation for the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival (running September 5-15), we have an exclusive look at the new teaser trailer for director Jennifer Blanc-Biehn’s The Night Visitor. See if you can spot the film’s surprise guest star!
From the Press Release:
Blanc/Biehn Productions has signed a foreign distribution deal with Taylor & Dodge on Jennifer Blanc-Biehn’s directorial debut, THE NIGHT VISITOR. The deal was brokered by Richard M. Blank, Esq.; and Tyler W. Konney at Taylor & Dodge will be repping the film.
“Foreign buyers love Jennifer and everything she touches.” says Konney, “Add to that the excellent production team and cast she has behind her on THE NIGHT VISITOR, and it’s a recipe for success.”
The producing team on THE NIGHT VISITOR includes Mark Gantt, Brianne Davis, Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Mark Burnham, Kate Rees Davies, Lony Ruhmann, and Michael Biehn for Blanc/Biehn Productions. Ruhmann wrote the story as well, and Blanc-Biehn says, “Lony is not only an executive producer, but he has a distinct vision and is a creative force.”
The cast is led by Brianne Davis (Prom Night, Among Friends, Jarhead), Vedette Lim (Halo 4, “True Blood”), Gary Cairns (Hero Wanted, “Justified”), Jennifer Blanc-Biehn (“Dark Angel”, Wrong Cops, The Victim), Mark Gantt (The Bannen Way, Ocean’s 11), and Tara Buck (“True Blood”, “Justified”, Tomorrow You’re Gone). The film introduces young actor Hudson Pischer, and yes, that’s Michael Biehn making a special appearance in the teaser.
“Michael directed me in his first feature, and I got the opportunity to direct him in mine.” says Blanc-Biehn. “Michael and I, as well as our producers Mark Gantt, Brianne Davis, and Lony Ruhmann, are so excited to have Tyler & Dodge on board. They totally get our vision and make the perfect match with us to bring THE NIGHT VISITOR to the foreign market.”
Anticipation for the film overseas is high in the wake of the husband and wife duo’s latest success, THE VICTIM, and their currently shooting remake of Chilean director Patricio Valladares’ HIDDEN IN THE WOODS. Buyers will get their first glimpses of THE NIGHT VISITOR, currently in post-production, in Toronto.
When a suburban couple hires a new age spiritualist to help with their troubled marriage, her advice to video their lives 24/7 to help reunite the family turns out to reveal their son is having conversations with an unseen entity, calling itself the Night Visitor. Beware of those that come at night.
