Blanc/Biehn Productions, formed by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn and her husband/partner, Michael Biehn, has announced new acquisition/distribution deals for three of its signature films, including the long-awaited remake of Hidden in the Woods. We have the details on that along with updates on both The Girl and Altered Perception.
From the Press Release:
The long-awaited Hidden in the Woods remake of the Spanish-language thriller, from acting-producing-directing duo Jennifer Blanc-Biehn and Michael Biehn’s Blanc/Biehn Productions, is slated for a U.S. release through Origin Releasing/eOne at the end of 2016.
Directed by Patricio Valladares (who also helmed the original) from a screenplay adapted by Kevin and Bradley Marcus, the tense thriller stars Michael Biehn, Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, William Forsythe, Jeannine Kaspar, Electra Avellan, Chris Browning, Ricco Ross, Andy Mackenzie, Richard Gunn, Caitlin Keats, Grace Powell, Mark Gantt, Cody Hackman, Nick Bateman, and Krzysztof Soszynski. FX work was provided by Vincent Guastini, and the producers include Cody Hackman, Hallie Jordan, and Loris Curci along with Blanc-Biehn.
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.
In addition, The Girl (UK title Psychopath) has been acquired by IndustryWorks Pictures/Origin Releasing and Safecracker Films. It is also set for release later this year. The Blanc-Biehn-directed thriller – written by Bradley and Kevin Marcus based on a story by executive producer Lony Ruhmann – stars Biehn, Tia Carrere, Evie Louise Thompson, Tristan DeVan, Lorraine Ziff, Hallie Jordan, and Nick Nicholson.
A kidnapped girl is rescued by a young boy and in return is compelled to save him from the horrors that lie in his home.
Lastly, IndustryWorks Pictures has secured Blanc/Biehn Productions’ Altered Perception, directed by Kate Reese Davies, written by Travis Romero (Treachery), and starring “Castle’s” Jon Huerta and Blanc-Biehn with Matthew Ziff, Hallie Jordan, Jade Tailor, Emrhys Cooper, Mark Burnham, Rico Simonini, Larry Wade Carrell, and Jenise Blanc.
