Named one of the “Seven Fresh Faces of Sundance 2012” by Gen Art, Alexia Rasmussen, along with Alexa Havins (“Torchwood”) have joined the cast of the indie-thriller, Proxy. Directed by Zack Parker of the critically acclaimed Scalene, which releases everywhere on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD on July 31st, the film is being produced by Parker’s Along The Track Productions, and Faust Checho’s FSC Productions. The screenplay was penned by Parker and Kevin Donner, and is also set to star Kristina Klebe (pictured; Rob Zombie’s Halloween) and Joe Swanberg (V/H/S, Youre Next, A Horrible Way to Die).
“A very pregnant Esther Woodhouse (Rasmussen) is walking home after her latest OB appointment, when she is brutally attacked and disfigured by a hooded assailant. When Esther seeks consolation in a support group, she finds friendship and empathy in Melanie (Havins), another mother scarred with tragedy. Esther soon begins to believe that the horrific event might be a bittersweet act of fate. However, friendship and empathy can be very dangerous things when accepted by the wrong people.
‘Proxy’ is a European-style suspense-thriller that promises to challenge the traditional cinematic form.”
Parker will reunite with The Newton Brothers to compose the score, and Jim Timperman will return as Director of Photography to lens the film. A notable addition to Parker’s crew is seasoned Special F/X Make-Up artist James Ojala (“True Blood”, Hellboy II, Lady in the Water, X-Men: Last Stand).
Proxy is set to begin production mid-July on location in Eastern Indiana. Get more on the official Facebook.
