With the American Film Market bearing down on us, expect to hear a lot about the horror projects heading to the event. Right now we have the first look at Academy Award-nominated Salma Hayek in director Joe Lynch’s action thriller Everly.
Everly is financed by Vega, Baby! and produced via Everly Productions in conjunction with Adam Ripp, Rob Paris, and Luke Rivett and Andrew Pfeffer. Rizal Risjad and Ricky Budhrani are the executive producers. Brett Hedblom is the co-producer. The film just wrapped principal photography in Belgrade, Serbia.
EVERLY, directed by Joe Lynch and starring Salma Hayak, co-stars Togo Igawa (LAST SAMURAI; MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA), Masashi Fujimoto (SYMPATHY FOR MR. VENGEANCE), Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, and Hiroyuki Watanabe. The Black List script by Yale Hannon is an intense action thriller centered on a down-on-her-luck woman (Hayek) who is forced to fend off waves of assassins sent by her ex, a dangerous mob boss, while trying to save her estranged mother and daughter. The film is set entirely in one apartment and is based on a concept created by Lynch.
AFM kicks off tomorrow, November 6th. Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales and will be presenting Everly footage to distributors this week. CAA is representing the US rights.
