Anonymous Content and T&C Pictures have signed Mark Blucas (Thr3e), Nicki Aycox (Dead Birds), Eva Amurri (pictured inside; Saved!), Andy Comeau (The Babysitters) and Naveen Andrews (pictured inside; Grindhouse, Lost) for the horror film Animals, which begins production this week in Salt Lake City. Craig Spector (A Nightmare on Elm Street: The Dream Child) adapted his original novel, which he co-wrote with John Skipp. Helming the pic is Doug Aarniokoski (The Safe Side, Highlander: Endgame), assistant/second unit director on projects for Robert Rodriguez such as “Once Upon a Time in Mexico.” The story centers on a blue-collar man in a dying factory town whose life is jolted after becoming involved in a romantic triangle amid a spate of uncontrolled violence.
