First Clip From The Well Fights Back

21 May 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

In a post-apocalyptic world you have to do whatever it takes to survive against its many dangers. Need an example? Check out this exclusive clip from Tom Hammock's (You're Next, V/H/S/2, The Guest) new flick, The Well.

From the Press Release

At the edge of an expansive barren valley, all that remains of The Wallace Farm for Wayward Youth is a few hollowed-out husks of buildings. Seventeen-year-old Kendal (Haley Lu Richardson) can barely recall when the Oregon valley was still lush.

It's been a decade since the last rainfall, and society at large has dried up and blown away. Kendal and the few others that remain barely scrape by, while dreaming of escape. When a greedy water baron lays claim to what little of the precious resource remains underground, Kendal must decide whether to run and hide or bravely fight for the few cherished people and things she has left. »

Wild Side walks into Dead Lands

27 January 2014 1:22 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Xyz Films has licensed French rights to Wild Side on its upcoming Maori combat project heading into the Efm.

Toa Fraser (pictured) is currently in production in New Zealand on The Dead Lands.

Xyz holds world rights excluding Australia and New Zealand and will show early footage to buyers in Berlin as part of a dynamic genre slate that includes Kevin Smith’s Tusk.

The Xyz Films principals told ScreenDaily they expect The Dead Lands to raise the profile of Maori hand-to-hand combat in the way their action franchise The Raid has done for the southeast Asian Silat martial art.

Glenn Standring wrote the screenplay about the vengeful son of a Maori chieftain who must enter the forbidden Dead Lands and forge a pact with the mysterious “Warrior” to avenge his slain tribe.

James Rolleston of Boy fame stars alongside Lawrence Makoare, Te Kohe Tuhaka, Xavier Horan and Once Were Warriors cast members George Henare and Rena Owen »
