New Look At Michael Paré In ‘The Shelter’


John Fallon’s directorial debut The Shelter, starring Michael Paré (The Lincoln Lawyer, Streets of Fire), Gayle James, Rachel Whittle, Lauren Thomas, Brigette Rose and Amy Wickenheiser enters post production this week. The film was financed by Bruise Productions and JoBlo Movie Productions, and Holbrook Multi Media will be handling the Post duties.

On a star filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas (Michael Paré) finds shelter for the night when he falls upon a vast two story house with the lights on and an inviting open front door. He strolls on in thinking he just caught a lucky break and for a while, it would appear as though he did. But soon enough, he realizes that the house won’t let him leave, as its doors are all locked while its windows cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. What does it want from him? Will he survive the ordeal?

John Fallon directed the film from his own screenplay, Donny Broussard (Little Houses) and Fallon produced the picture, Erin Bennett was the production manager, Shawn Knippelberg will be scoring the film while Thomas Wilson (James Wan’s The Conjuring, Insidious: Chapter 2) is handling the film’s VFX.

Once Post completed The Shelter will hit the Festival circuit and will be seeking worldwide distribution. The film will have a presence at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival. You can follow the film’s progress on its official Facebook page.
