Actor Michael Pare (The Lincoln Lawyer, The Virgin Suicides) has officially been cast as the lead role of Thomas in John Fallon’s upcoming feature length directorial debut The Shelter.
In the film, “On a star filled night, widower and homeless man Thomas (Michael Pare) 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. Inside, with nobody in sight, he finds all of the comforts that he used to have. After taking a bath, feasting wholeheartedly on some food and relishing the silliness on the tube, he gets some well-earned shut eye.
All is well until a restless Thomas wakes up in a panic and finds a loaded revolver resting on his lap. Baffled, he picks up the weapon, checks the barrel and notes that it is fully loaded. A visceral sense of unease invades him immediately. Something is very wrong and he decides that it is time to leave. Alas he finds out swiftly that the premises won’t let him depart so quickly. The doors are all locked, and the windows puzzlingly cannot be opened or broken. Destiny has brought Thomas to this place. Will he survive the ordeal?”
The Shelter is written & directed by John Fallon and produced by Donny Broussard (Bigfoot Productions Inc.) and John Fallon (Bruise Productions Inc.). Michael Paré will also be the film’s executive producer.
It is presently in pre-production and slated to start filming in January 2014. READ MORE
