Hollywood, California (FSCwire) - The Wonderfilm Media Corporation (“Wonderfilm” or “Company”) (TSXV: WNDR) is pleased to announce it has commenced production on the Company’s next feature film.
Guy Pearce is set to star as a small-town marshal in Wonderfilm’s new action thriller, Disturbing The Peace, which starts principal photography in Alabama this summer. Nicolas Chartier’s Voltage Pictures is handling international sales; Oceanside Studios is providing the equity, with David Gilbery’s Media Finance Capital banking the sales and tax credits. York Shackleton (211, starring Nicolas Cage) directs from an original script by Chuck Hustmyre (End of a Gun, House of the Rising Sun).
Pearce plays the local marshal in a small town invaded by a gang of outlaw bikers intent on robbing the town bank and a nearby casino. The marshal, an ex-Texas Ranger who refuses to carry a gun because of a shooting that went bad several years before, is forced to pick up a gun again to protect his town.
“Disturbing The Peace,” is our third thriller this year following “Moose” starring John Travolta that’s in post production and “Primal,” starring Nicholas Cage and Famke Janssen, that’s currently shooting in Puerto Rico. This continues Wonderfilm’s mandate to produce star studded entertainment for the world marketplace,” said Kirk Shaw, CEO of Wonderfilm, in a joint statement with producer Daniel Grodnik,
Jeffrey Bowler and Bret Saxon are executive producers for Wonderfilm Media. Paul McGowan and Larry Howard are also executive producers.
Wonderfilm is the collaboration of four Hollywood producers, Daniel Grodnik, Kirk Shaw, Jeff Bowler and Bret Saxon, who combined their talents in 2017 to create a leading publicly traded (TSX Venture Exchange) entertainment company with offices in Beverly Hills and Vancouver. Wonderfilm’s main business is the production of high-quality feature films and episodic television that offer international appeal through the Company’s guiding philosophy of bringing new financing solutions to an entertainment industry increasingly looking for funding and co-production alternatives.
