Exclusive: Writer/Actress Jamie Bernadette Talks The 6th FriendWARNING: When combined, women, narcotics, epic partying and an uninvited sixth friend may result in serious bodily harm, dismemberation and/or death. Proceed cautiously.

Written by star Jamie Bernadette (pictured; Axeman at Cutter’s Creek), the independent feature flick and party parable The 6th Friend begins casting next month, according to Bernadette, who will also produce alongside co-star Chantelle Albers. Letia Clouston will direct, with a release slated for 2014.

“I wanted to write a story with an all-female principal cast, who were intelligent and strong and who possess a determination to not allow themselves to be oppressed,” Bernadette told us of her inspiration for the script for The 6th Friend. “I intended to create intricate relationships,” she continued, “between complex characters in the midst of a story of real terror and bloodshed.”

As for the writing process, “It was a blast,” she told us. “I love getting lost in the story and in the characters’ lives. It’s an escape for me. I’ve been writing since I was six years old, so it was nice to return to that old love of mine.”

Synopsis:
Six best friends engage in excessive partying and drug use on the night of their college graduation. An uninvited guest commits a horrifying crime on one of the girls, and the girls seek vicious revenge on the perpetrator, which, years later, leads to disastrous results.

Stay tuned for more soon, and in the interim stay up-to-date with The 6th Friend on Facebook, and follow The 6th Friend on Twitter (@the6thfriend).

Live-Action F.E.A.R. Adaptation Coming To Machinima

Published

on

Screenwriter Greg Russo has signed a deal with Machinima to pen an adaptation of the F.E.A.R. video game franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The article did not specify whether the adaptation would be in the form of a film or a series.

Russo, who is a lifelong gamer, will work with Machinima on creating and developing the F.E.A.R. adaptation, although we don’t know much else at this point. Machinima are a subsidiary of Warner Bros., and it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the F.E.A.R. franchise has also been owned by WB since 2009. In other words, Warner Bros. were bound to give us a live action adaptation of F.E.A.R. at one point, so we’re not too surprised by this development.

Russo, who is also writing the scripts for the Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil reboots, was quoted as saying the following:

“As a lifelong gamer, it’s an absolute honor to partner with Machinima, the preeminent provider of digital content to gamers worldwide. F.E.A.R. holds a special place in my heart. I’m excited to bring my personal passion to this and future projects and can’t wait to see where our partnership goes from here.”

An acronym for First Encounter Assault Recon, the F.E.A.R. games focus on an elite task force who fight to stop Alma Wade, a young girl with incredible psychic powers, from tearing apart the fabric of reality. Legendary film director John Carpenter served as story consultant on the third game, which we awarded a highly positive review back in the day. We’ll bring you more on Machinima’s adaptation when it becomes availalbe.

Short Film RETINA Will Strain Your Eyes

Published

on

We’ve been paying a lot of attention to the young filmmaker Alex J. Mann around these parts, because his projects are so unique and innovative that we can never wait to see what he’ll cook up next. Mann has just released his latest short, Retina, on his Space Oddity Films YouTube channel, and you can give it a watch below. It’s just under two minutes long and doesn’t contain any dialogue, but this is still a short which will keep you up at night.

Retina is described as being about “A young man’s fight to shut off his laptop camera turns deadly.” It was written and directed by Mann, and stars Dan J. Johnson in a singular performance. Retina also contains some gruesome images, and is most definitely not safe for work.
