EXCLUSIVE: Things are about to get creepy and terrifying for Adam Korson. The alum from Bravo’s Imposters is set to lead the indie creature feature The Stairs from director Peter “Drago” Tiemann. The movie is currently shooting in Seattle.
Co-written by Tiemann & Jason Lowe, the film starts in 1997 when 11-year-old Jesse and Grandpa Gene go on a hunting trip deep in the woods. While tracking a deer, Jesse and Gene are separated. As the shadows of the forest grow deeper, Gene finds the deer and Jesse finds something only a little boy’s nightmares are made of. Fast forward 20 years later and a group of hikers, led by brothers Nick (Korson) and Josh, set off into the very same woods. Unfortunately for them, nothing goes as planned and they all come face-to-face with the very same creature Jesse discovered all those years ago. This is a story of fear and death and heroism in the unlikeliest of circumstances.
The Stairs is produced by Wandering Dragon Productions, Inc. with executive producers Andrew Nevils, Karl Lindor, Scott Riefler, John Kritsonas, Wesley Barker and producers Amanda Jones and Tiemann.
