“This project was very nostalgic for me as a director as I had not directed a horror project since I was trying to make scary shorts in high school. The horror genre was what influenced me to become a filmmaker through the works of John Carpenter and Sam Raimi. I knew how Brittney felt about the genre, so when we started talking about doing a mini series, it was the go to genre for us. Getting back to our roots,” said Brasier, who co-owns American Wasteland Entertainment, LLC. A production company focusing on online based entertainment and film, with Greer.
Stage Fright also boasts some fantastic special effects and make up work from veteran Mike Strain Jr., whose recent horror film projects include the V/H/S and The Aggression Scale.
Brasier served as director, as well co-writer, and producer with Greer, who plays Laney in the series. Zac Rantz portrays Laney’s newlywed husband. The rest of the amazingly talented cast includes Chris Greig, Mickey Stone Kevin Keppy, Stephen Nations, Elaine Jenkins, Marci Manna, Haley Bertrand, Jennifer Eiffert, Jason Knight, and Angel Gonzales.

In other news, NBC’s “Hannibal” has set the stage for a “Wonderfalls” reunion, tapping star Caroline Dhavernas as a series regular and adding L.A. Complex’s Aaron Abrams for a recurring role, states THR. Dhavernas will board the series as Dr. Alana Bloom, a psychology professor at the University of Chicago who also works as a consultant profiler for the FBI, while Abrams will play Brian Zeller, one of three crime scene investigators working with the agency.
Based the books by Thomas Harris, James Bond villain Mads Mikkelsen will play the psychiatrist-turned-serial killer in the 13-episode dramatic take from “Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller. Hugh Dancy stars as Will Graham, the criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI and enlists Dr. Lecter’s help with the case.
Dhavernas’ character is an academic who does her best to keep her work at a strict intellectual distance from her private life, who knows that Will is spectacularly gifted at this kind of work — but believes he needs to keep many many firewalls between himself and the murderers he hunts. An honest, direct woman who would like to be Will’s friend, she fears that Jack Crawford’s recruitment of Will Graham might place Will in harm’s way. She ends up coming to Langley to be Will’s protector, and inadvertently falls for Jack. Abrams’ Brian is a medical school graduate and tech geek who uses forensic evidence and clues from victims’ corpses to determine how they died and who could be responsible. He’s astounded by the absurdity of the serial killer’s tactics and amazed with Will’s insight into the killer’s mind.
They join a cast that also includes Laurence Fishburne, who will recur as Jack Crawford, the head of the FBI’s behavioral science unit.
