“Nothing To Fear”, a horror movie co-produced by Slash through his horror film production company Slasher Films has been picked up by Anchor Bay for distribution. Creature and storyboard artist Anthony Leonardi III, who worked on “Rango” and the upcoming “47 Ronin” will direct the movie, which will start shooting next month in Louisiana.
“Nothing To Fear” is based on an actual town in Kansas, which, according to legend, is one of the seven gateways to Hell. Slasher Films also has three other films in development, including “Wake The Dead”, which based on the graphic novels by Steven Niles, with Haley Joel Osment playing Victor Franklin, a college student experimenting with reversing death. Slash has described “Wake The Dead” as “basically a modern, young Frankenstein story about a brilliant college student who’s discovered how to animate dead tissue, but he’s a teenager so he goes overboard.”
“Anchor Bay is thrilled to be working with the Slasher Films team,” said Kevin Kasha, EVP Acquisitions and Co-Productions at Anchor Bay Films. “We knew we wanted to work with Slash when he announced the formation of the label back in September at Toronto, and after having read this script, we are even more excited.”
Slash added: “Anthony Leonardi’s vision of this story is exceptionally unnerving and dark. It will keep you totally engaged from the first second of the film to the last. It’s guaranteed to scare the hell out of you.”
