Director, producer and writer Rick Bieber (Flatliners) and Ken Clark have partnered to form a new independent feature film production company, MiNDS i CiNEMA.
The first project under the banner will be the demonic love story, The Other.
The psychological horror stars Dominic Sherwood, pictured, as Zach Bradford, a young man tormented by the possibility of descending into the depths of insanity, or worse, become the target of an actual demonization. The terrors surrounding Zach, his family and friends grow to deadly proportions and he is forced to question his sanity and fears for his girlfriend Shawn’s (Charlbi Dean) safety. Once the threat of psychotic behavior reaches its climactic conclusion, Zach is confronted with an unimaginable horrific reality.
Based on a screenplay which was written and will be directed by Rick Bieber, the film will star Dominic Sherwood (Vampire Academy), Jill Hennessy (“Crossing Jordon,” “Law & Order”), Emmy Award Winner Drea de Matteo (“Sons of Anarchy,” “The Sopranos,” Dark PLaces), Charlbi Dean and Sinclaire Schaefer.
“Although unquestionably scary, The Other is also a classic love story with believable characters confronting provocative and somewhat spiritual themes,” said Bieber. “It’s our hope that the new company will produce very commercial films with evocative story lines and strong and well developed characters, regardless of genre. We’re anxious to create an appealing new home for talented emerging and established filmmakers and actors alike.”
The Other begins shooting in Los Angeles in January 2015.
