Film Harvest and Snowfort Pictures announced today that filming is finally underway on The Butcher Brothers’ The Thompsons, their vampire sequel to the indie smash The Hamiltons (cute title, right?)
“In the sequel, a bloodbath at a gas station in the desert puts the family on the run, eventually seeing them resurface in the U.K. under a new identity as “The Thompsons.” Desperate for protection in this unfamiliar country, the Thompsons seek out the help of a shadowy underground rumored to be sympathetic to vampires.”
The original cast are reprising their roles, with Cory Knauf, Samuel Childs, Mackenzie Firgens and Joseph McKelheer being joined by newcomer Ryan Hartwig as the youngest sibling “Lenny.” The film is being produced by Film Harvest’s Eben Kostbar and Joe McKelheer and Snowfort Pictures’ Travis Stevens (A Horrible Way to Die). The script was written by The Butcher Brothers and Cory Knauf.
