While none of Argentinian director Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s films have yet been released in the UK, he is most definitely a director to keep a close eye on. The trailers for his extreme horror films Cold Sweat, Here Comes the Devil and Penumbra all look to be terrific doses of brutal horror, and one day us UK fans will experience these delights.
However, the director is now making Late Phases for Dark Sky Films, and a recent press release has some exciting details on the lead cast member, and also shares the very interesting synopsis.
MPI’s Dark Sky Films, the preeminent independent producer-distributor of high-quality genre films, announced in Berlin that actor Nick Damici (Stake Land, Premium Rush, We Are What We Are) is set to star in the upcoming LATE PHASES, directed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano (Here Comes The Devil, Penumbra). Shooting will start this spring.
MPI’s Dark Sky, who is co-producing LATE PHASES with Zak Zeman’s Site B Productions, has also announced that they will bring on Glass Eye Pix. Previous Dark Sky and Glass Eye collaborations include successful genre films such as The House of the Devil, Stake Land, The Innkeepers, and others. Zak Zeman comes in fresh off the heels of his Sundance success with V/H/S/2. Brent Kunkle will produce for Glass Eye Pix after his success with last year’s The Comedy.
MPI Executive Vice President Greg Newman said, “Nick Damici was a key factor in the success of Stake Land, and he’ll bring that same unforgettable presence to this new film.”
Zak Zeman said, “Nick Damici fits perfectly into this role. Combining forces with MPI and Glass Eye will bring LATE PHASES to a whole new level.”
Said Glass Eye’s Larry Fessenden. “We’re excited to be working with MPI Dark Sky again with a great script and Damici in the lead. I have admired Zak Zeman’s recent work and look forward to joining forces to bring Bogliano’s vision to the screen.”
LATE PHASES tells the story of Ambrose McKinley (Damici), who moves into a community where the residents have been dying in increasing numbers – oddly, all have supposedly been the victims of dog attacks. But after barely surviving his own attack on his first night there, Ambrose discovers that the assailants are much more than canines.
