Exclusive Cast Update - Writer/Actress Jamie Bernadette Talks The 6th FriendAnother entry in the slasher genre is gearing up for principal photography, and we caught up with The 6th Friend writer and actress Jamie Bernadette to get an update on the “party gone awry” flick. Read on!

Scripted by Bernadette (pictured; who also stars), the feature film The 6th Friend (which we first reported on here) is slated to commence principal photography in Southern California this October, with an eye for a 2014 release. Directed by Letia Clouston and executive produced by Sommer Leigh Studios’ Lyle Albers, the production has now additionally nabbed the acting talents of Dominique Swain (Alpha Dog, Lolita), Jessica Morris (Reel Evil), Chantelle Albers (Axeman at Cutter’s Creek), Sadie Katz (House of Bad) and Theresa June-Tao (Battle of Los Angeles).

Speaking exclusively with Dread Central, Bernadette stated of the cast, “I am thrilled. I worked with Chantelle Albers in Axeman at Cutter’s Creek, and I saw how talented she is, and we hit it off so well that we decided to produce The 6th Friend together. I also worked with Jessica Morris in Reel Evil and this past summer with Theresa June Tao in the horror feature film Mile Marker Seven. Both of them are so talented. Sadie Katz and I are scheduled to work in Jim Towns’ horror film 13 Girls together, and I am very familiar with her work from House of Bad and Nipples and Palm Trees. In both her performance is stellar.”

As for Swain, “I have always been very familiar with her, ever since I saw her in Lolita years ago, and she has continued to do very impressive work,” offered Bernadette. “We presented the script to her and she absolutely loved it, and she wanted to come on board! We were thrilled to have such a great talent join us, and she is perfect for the bubbly, comedic role of ‘Heather’. Lyle (Albers) couldn’t be more thrilled with the cast that we have put together, and neither could Chantelle and I.”

Commented director Clouston (via the official PR), “This is an exciting opportunity to work with these six accomplished actresses and see the dynamic unfold onscreen. The film will open with a shocking beginning and then lead the audience through a bloody trail of suspense and terror.”

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.
