Casting News Bleeds from the Pages of Artik
We’re always on the lookout for new and, more importantly, interesting projects to get our ghosts. The new flick Artik may just do the trick.
Word has come across our desk that Lauren Ashley Carter (Jug Face, Darling, The Woman) and Chase Williamson (The Guest, Bad Match, John Dies at the End) have joined the cast of writer/director Tom Botchii Skowronski’s latest thriller. Jerry G. Angelo (Warfighter, The Rambler, Fright Night) and indie horror favorite Matt Mercer (Contracted, Contracted: Phase II, The Mind’s Eye) co-star.
Artik marks Skowronski’s feature film debut and will be produced by Fire Born Studios. Led by up and coming producer Kodi Saint Angelo, Artik will be Fire Born Studios’ sophomore feature and will follow their early 2018 release Warfighter.
The story centers around a family-run sunflower farm, where comic-book obsessed serial killer Artik (Angelo), his life partner Flin (Carter; pictured), and their family of foster kids are on the hunt for the ultimate comic book hero. Until Holton Shudcase (Williamson), an Al-Anon attending, straight-edge punk purist, comes between them.
