The Dark Around Your Heart



Later this year we’ll be doing a film noir entitled THE DARK AROUND YOUR HEART. The story involves a hard boiled private eye who gets wrapped up in a mystery involving vampires, mummies, and magic. Think of it as THE BIG SLEEP crossed with KISS ME DEADLY with a dash of CAST A DEADLY SPELL, and you’ll get an idea of what type of vibe we’re going for. We haven’t talked about it much on the Splattercast, but we’ve been real busy the past few months castingĀ  and doing pre-production even as we continue to shoot Shivers Down Your Spine shorts and finish ISABELLE. Well, we’ve officially announced the female portion of the cast. I am very pleased to announce this extraordinarily talented cast:

  • Danielle Wolverton as VERONICA PAYNE
  • Christina Olson as MALLORY BLACKWOOD
  • Joanna Kingsbury as MIKA DALTON
  • Lindsay Washburn as TABITHA CARNOVASCH
  • Chianna Fisher as SATIAH
  • Jazmyne Van Houten as GEMMA STOKES
  • Ellen Gould as PENELOPE ANDERS
  • and Zenaida Smith, Allison Munger, Desiree Cade and Brandy Howell as the victims of Khufu

We have a Facebook Group for the film that will follow the entire production of the project and it includes character descriptions for many of the roles listed above as well as concept art.

Keep checking back for progress on the film.

The Dark Around Your Heart

Izzy is nearing the finish line, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start thinking about our next movie! I’ve spent a long time writing what I think is the coolest story I’ve done. Part of the reason we started Izzy this summer was because I wasn’t ready with the script for this and I wanted us to at least get something done. It just so happened that a lot of people enjoyed the Izzy script so we might as well, right! But now that the main principal photography of Izzy is fairly close to being completed, I’m beginning to plan a bit for things next year. We’re not holding auditions for this until later this fall, but I wanted to put it out there so area actors and crew members will know that something rad is coming their way soon. I’ve posted a Craigslist notice detailing a few of the characters and locations we’re looking for.

There will be curves, guns, and smoking. Lots of smoking.

If you are an area actor or potential crew member looking to get in on this project early, just shoot us a message via the CL ad and we’ll get you more details.
