Jessica Cameron and Jonathan Scott Higgins have re-teamed with their Truth or Dare producer Mem Ferda on their next 3 films. Ferda will serve as the sole producer on all three movies. They have cast actress Tristan Risk of the Soska Sister’s American Mary in the feature film MANIA. Actress Ellie Church of the grindhouse film, Time to Kill has also joined the production. Risk will play the role of Brooke and Church will play the role of Mel.
MANIA is one of three features in Jessica Cameron’s triple feature cross-country extravaganza. In it, Risk will play the crazed lesbian lover of Church’s character Mel. It will mark her 2nd feature as a director from a script Higgins wrote. Desolation will be the 2nd feature film and directed by Ryan M. Andrews from a script he wrote. Risk has also signed on to star as the villain in Andrews’ movie. A feature length documentary titled Kill the Production Assitant, will chronicle the making of this very ambitious project.
On Truth or Dare, Cameron and Higgins were met with difficulties trying to secure a director who could handle the gory script until Cameron finally decided to pull up her sleeves and do it herself. They, along with Ferda, met a new challenge with casting the female leads in MANIA. Numerous actresses have dropped out due to the amount of nudity in the script.
Principal photography begins on November 3rd and they will be filming all three films while traveling cross-country in an RV! The filmmakers had a campaign on their website where fans helped decide which states to film in. The top states with the most pre-orders came down to California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Ohio, and Alabama. The map can be seen on the website here: www.killtheproductionassistant.com.

Fans will meet the newest character on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” Sunday when Season 5 introduces Gabriel Stokes, a reverend Rick and the group encounter.
Gabriel is a well-known character from Robert Kirkman’s comic book. Unfortunately Gabriel and Rick are at two very different ends of the spectrum in terms of the zombie apocalypse. Rick has come to terms with doing everything it takes to stay alive. Gabriel is a reverend who still hasn’t realized it takes brutality to survive. The two will likely have the same trust issues on TV that they do in the comic book.
Gilliam is the third alum of “The Wire” to join the cast of “The Walking Dead.” Lawrence Gilliard Jr. (Bob Stookey) and Chad Coleman (Tyreese”) also starred on HBO’s Baltimore-based series. Gilliam is a gifted actor who’s also made memorable appearances on “Homeland,” “The Good Wife” and “Oz.” If the Season 4 finale of “The Wire” was any indication (Gilliam’s best performance to date), expect him to bring emotional depth to the character of Gabriel.
Here’s a preview of this weeks episode of The Walking Dead titled “Strangers”

LOS ANGELES, October 16, 2014 – The Romero family’s directorial legacy continues with a son following in his father’s footsteps. G. Cameron Romero (STAUNTON HILL), son of George A. Romero (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) announced today that he has launched his campaign on Indiegogo, for ORIGINS, the genesis story of the first Romero zombie in his father’s iconic masterpiece NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, with a goal of $150,000 for pre-production costs.
Fans can contribute to the ORIGINS campaign by visiting helptelltheorigin.com.
“I feel carrying on my dad’s legacy is something that I not only want to do, but it’s something I HAVE to do,” says Cameron Romero, Director of ORIGINS. “…because I, like all my dad’s fans, was raised on his creation.” Set in the turbulent late sixties, the film tells the story of a brilliant scientist – Dr. Alan Cartwright – who strikes a deal with the military that will give him all the resources he needs to finalize his work in exchange for what he later learns is a price all mankind will have to pay.
Producer Darrin Reed (“Lila and Eve”) said, “The origin story deserves to be told by someone who passionately loves and has a unique insight into the original movie and nobody has that more than George’s own son.”
Through perks for contributing to the campaign, legions of fans will have the unique opportunity to participate in the making of the film by being part of a ‘brain trust’ that will be polled to help answer questions during the pre-production of the film. Other perks include items such as signed ‘legs’ and ‘arms’, the ability to visit the set, and perhaps most enticing of all – being in the film as a zombie and killed on camera.
Bloody Disgusting, a well-recognized name in horror news is featuring ORIGINS through its partnership with Indiegogo. This historical relationship marks the first time that a horror site has partnered with a crowdfunding platform. Continue reading “Cameron Romero’s “Origins”” »
