Ashley Greene (Burying the Ex, Twilight, The Immaculate Room) and Shawn Ashmore (X-Men, Frozen, “The Boys”) are attached to star in Chad Archibald’s upcoming horror film, It Feeds, which marks the first instalment in a ten-picture genre slate deal between LA-based Productivity Media Inc (PMI) and Canada’s Black Fawn Films. Greene and Ashmore are teaming up once more following their recent work together on Peter Winther’s Aftermath.
Currently in production, It Feeds centres on a young girl who is convinced that a malevolent entity is feeding on her. Greene will play a psychic practitioner who must grapple with her own personal demons to save the girl from being consumed whilst Ashmore will play the goril’s distraught father, desperately seeking ways to protect his daughter from whatever it is that is tormenting her.
The ten-picture slate will be curated, developed and produced by Chad Archibald and Cody Calahan’s Black Fawn Films banner in association with Productivity Media, with Navid McIlhargey overseeing the latter.
Commenting on the recently-inked deal, McIlhargey said, “We have been aware of Black Fawn for some time and are truly excited to create this long term partnership. This slate of genre pictures adds to the breadth of films we want to bring to audiences worldwide.”
Black Fawn’s Clahan added, “We are beyond thrilled to embark on this new venture with PMI, creating a unique brand of genre films that will not only engage and terrify but pull at the heart strings of our audience.”
And the film’s director, Archibald commented on exactly the type of content this deal will be bringing to the table: “This slate won’t just include horror films — there will be content specifically crafted for today’s audiences, blending genres to shock and surprise viewers.”
PMI’s William G. Santor commented: “The team at Black Fawn is a perfect addition to the partnerships Productivity is creating around the world that center on content creators who are best of breed. We look forward to working side by side with them for years to come crafting compelling entertainment.”
