Sector 5 Nabs Indie Horror Pic ‘2 Jennifer’; Production Begins on Thriller ‘Applecart’
Exclusive: Sector 5 Films has picked up World-Wide rights to the iPhone-shot indie horror pic 2 Jennifer, with plans for release later in 2016. Written & directed by Hunter Johnson, the sequel to the director James Cullen Bressack’s 2013 iPhone horror film To Jennifer stars Johnson, alongside David Coupe, with rising horror newcomer Lara Jean Mummert in the title role. Shot entirely on the iPhone 6, the very meta plot sees filmmakers attempting to make the sequel to To Jennifer, only to find a dark secret threatening the lives of everyone involved. Jennifer, a beautiful actress, now has two options: become the heroine of the film, or face a brutal death.
Also featuring supporting performances by Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Erin Marie Hogan (House of Manson) and Jody Barton (To Jennifer), 2 Jennifer is the first feature length horror film produced by Johnson’s LAHorror.com imprint. Frank Merle, Jarrett Furst, Christian Ackerman & Megan Perrin produce alongside Bressack and Johnson. Merle’s previous work includes The Employer, while Bressack is known for Pernicious and Blood Lake.
M3 Creative, the production team behind the acclaimed 2012 horror-comedy pic John Dies At The End have begun production on its next project, the thriller Applecart from first time feature director Brad Baruh. Telling a dual storyline exploring two very different perspectives of a family’s murderous encounter in the woods, Applecart utilizes both a documentary-style and a cinematic narrative to play with structure as the story unfolds. Brea Grant, Barbara Crampton, AJ Bowen, Sophie Dalah, Elise Luthman and Joshua Hoffman star.
The M3 Creative production is shooting now in Lake Tahoe and Los Angeles, with plans for a festival circuit push similar to John Dies At The End, including a Sundance debut followed by TIFF, SXSW, AFI and more. Andy Meyers and Baruh are producing, with Don Coscarelli (Bubba Ho-Tep, John Dies At The End) executive producing.
