Not too long ago we covered Todd E Freeman’s M is for Marriage, an entry to the 26th director competition to win a place in the ABCS of Death 2 which also served as a concept piece for his upcoming film Love Sick. Today there has been further developments as Freeman has announced that the American Mary scene-stealer Tristan Risk has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming feature for Polluted Pictures.
“I saw her mind blowing performance in American Mary and thought immediately that I wanted to work with her on Love Sick,” says Writer / Director Todd Freeman. “While talking with her about the script and the character of Rebecca, it became even more obvious that it was a perfect marriage of actor to material. I saw the character of Rebecca on the (Skype) screen for the first time and, quite honestly, it was electric. I can’t wait for people to see her dissolve into this role. It’s a goopy mess of a movie and Tristan is front and center for the entire run time. Genre fans have a lot to look forward to.”
The film tells the story of a couple whom, after much thought, have decided to part ways. However, after their separation they realise how hard it is to disconnect from one another as the pain of their lies and betryal begin to manifest physically within both of them and to the others they have become involved with.
Risk says, “After watching the proof of concept piece [M is for Marriage] and reading the feature script, I became really excited. I love a good slasher horror but Love Sick is different: It has the ability to haunt you well after you’ve seen it. It leaves you questioning your own relationships, makes you wonder how well you know those closest to you, and what horrors lay just beneath the surface.”
We here at Cinema Chords are not only excited about this news but we strongly recommend that you check out Freeman’s short M is for Marriage and see what the world of Love Sick has to offer you.
The film is currently still in development and will move toward production in late spring.
