Content is delighted to confirm production commenced on Slasher Films’ horror film Nothing to Fear last Monday, May 14 in Covington, Louisiana. Anchor Bay previously acquired US rights.
The cast includes Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption), Anne Heche (Rampart), James Tupper (Mr Popper’s Penguins), Jennifer Stone (Wizards of Waverly Place), Ethan Peck (In Time), and Rebekah Brandes (Bellflower).
Nothing to Fear is the first feature from the horror shingle launched by iconic rocker Slash (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver) and Academy-Award winning producer Michael Williams and Rob Eric (Transsiberian, Session 9, The Fog of War). At the directing helm is Gore Verbinski protégé Anthony Leonardi III, who has worked alongside Verbinski on such films as Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Rango, and the upcoming Lone Ranger. Leonardi has also worked as a creature designer on many films, including Francis Lawrence’s Constantine and the upcoming 47 Ronin.
“‘Nothing to Fear’ is the tale of a family whose journey towards a better life in a small town is savagely derailed by a charismatic but emotionally conflicted man of the cloth. The movie is based on an actual town of Stull, Kansas, which is surrounded by Internet folklore proclaiming the town to be one of the seven gateways to Hell.“
