Ashley Greene, known for her role in the “Twilight Saga,” and Shawn Ashmore, known for his appearances in the “X-Men” series, are set to star in the upcoming horror film titled “It Feeds.” The movie will serve as the first installment in a proposed ten-picture genre slate developed by LA-based Productivity Media Inc (PMI) and Canadian outfit Black Fawn Films.
“It Feeds” is currently in production and revolves around the story of a young girl who insists that a malevolent entity is feeding on her. Greene will portray a clairvoyant therapist who must confront her own personal demons in order to save the girl before she falls victim to the entity completely. Ashmore will take on the role of the anguished father, desperately struggling to protect his daughter.
The entire slate of films will be curated, developed, and produced by Chad Archibald and Cody Calahan’s Black Fawn Films in collaboration with Productivity Media. Navid McIlhargey will oversee the project on behalf of PMI. Archibald, the director of “It Feeds,” also wrote the screenplay for the film.
PMI has recently completed principal photography on the directorial debut of Jack Huston titled “Day Of The Fight,” featuring Michael Pitt, Ron Perlman, and Joe Pesci. Other projects in post-production include “Borderline,” starring Samara Weaving and Ray Nicholson; “Queen of Bones,” starring Julia Butters, Jacob Tremblay, Taylor Schilling, and Martin Freeman; “Some Other Woman,” directed by Joel David Moore; and “Littlemouth,” featuring Isabelle Fuhrman, Josh Hutcherson, and Dennis Quaid.
Black Fawn Films, known for their work on genre films such as “Vicious Fun,” “Death Valley,” and “The Oak Room,” will bring their expertise to this partnership. The collaboration between PMI and Black Fawn aims to deliver a diverse range of genre films to audiences worldwide.
