AJ Bowen and Barbara Crampton Shout 'Grow Up, Tony Phillips' for Emily Hagins
Filmmaker Emily Hagins is nothing short of an inspiration for horror fans of every age to go out there and make their movie! And that's just what this lovely young lady is doing again. You almost have to wonder how long before she's a household name?
From the Press Release
AJ Bowen (A Horrible Way to Die, You're Next) and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, From Beyond) have signed on for Grow Up, Tony Phillips, the fourth feature film from writer-director Emily Hagins (pictured; My Sucky Teen Romance, Pathogen). The pair join previously attached cast members Tony Vespe, Devin Bonnée (both of My Sucky Teen Romance), and Jamie Landau (son of Jon Landau, in his feature film acting debut) in the independently-produced comedy about a Halloween-loving teenager who doesn't think childhood passions should have an expiration date.
Grow Up, Tony Phillips is the fourth feature film from young director Emily Hagins, who drew an international spotlight when she set out to make her first feature, the zombie film Pathogen, at only 11 years old. Her most recent film, the vampire comedy My Sucky Teen Romance, enjoyed its world premiere at the 2011 South by Southwest Film Festival, where it was acquired by Dark Sky Films for American distribution. Producing are Paul Gandersman and Peter Hall, founders of the Austin, Texas-based Arcanum Pictures. Filming is set to begin in late 2012, with principal photography taking place in and around Central Texas.
