Watchmen and The Final Girls actress Malin Akerman will executive produce and star in K. Asher Levin’s With Teeth with Lydia Hearst (Z Nation), Kara Hayward (Moonrise Kingdom) and Jack Donnelly (Atlantis).
Co-written by Levin with Zack Imbrogno, it follows a group of superstar Internet influencers who are drawn to a reclusive billionaire’s mansion only to find themselves trapped in the lair of a horrifyingly evil vampire. The only way out is to be saved by a famous online gamer (Hayward) and an old school vampire hunter, who is set in his ways.
Akerman tells Deadline: “I’m thrilled to be producing this film. The script, written and to be directed by my friend Asher Levin, is a daring new take on the vampire genre, with themes relevant to the times we’re living in. Coupled with the amazing cast we’re putting together, I’m excited to help bring Asher’s vision to life!“
Executive producer Clay Epstein added: “With Teeth is a fresh, fun, and pulse-pounding take on the Vampire genre. With this remarkable cast and filmmaking team, we’re excited for the film to find its audience.”
Levin, Daniel Cummings, Zack Imbrogno, Matthew Helderman, Luke Taylor, and Grady Craig are producing with Epstein serving as executive producer alongside Akerman. Lydia Hearst is a co-executive producer.
