THR reports that Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores, the horror duo known as The Butcher Brothers (The Violent Kind, pictured, The Hamiltons, April Fool’s Day), have cast their upcoming film The Beginners Guide to Snuff, setting Joey Kern (Cabin Fever, “Workaholics”), Luke Edwards (The Wizard), Bree Williamson (“True Detective”) and Brad Greenquist (Water for Elephants) to star.
“The story centers on two actor brothers (Kern and Edwards) who are trying to make it in Hollywood, and decide to make a pretend snuff film to get ahead. In hopes of making it more realistic, they kidnap an actress (Williamson) so they can capture her terror on film. But they soon discover they have messed with the wrong woman. Greenquist will play the head of security at a theme park who has a dark edge to his work.“
Cory Knauf, Adam Weis and Mitchell Altieri wrote the script for The Beginners Guide to Snuff.
Principal photography will begin this month in Los Angeles.
