Valley of the Gods intertwines the stories of the richest man on earth, an ancient Najavo legend and writer John Ecas (Hartnett), who possesses an unbridled imagination. John, the film’s narrator, has the ability to alter reality, launching the narrative into the realm of spectacular fantasy. The film follows the three narratives as the characters attempt to escape the inevitable drama that is about to unfold when supernatural visions ultimately clash with impending reality. Principal photography is set to commence in mid-May 2016.
The film is produced by Royal Road Entertainment’s (Blue Blood) Filip Jan Rymsza and Carla Rosen-Vacher and The Safran Company’s (The Conjuring) Peter Safran and Angelus Silesius. Fortissimo Films is handing international sales.
