Glass Eye pal Mike Gingold talks THE RANGER in this Fantasia/Frontières exclusive!
“During this summer’s Frontières International Co-Production Market at Montreal’s Fantasia festival, RUE MORGUE got the chance to chat with several filmmakers who were there pitching ambitious genre projects to potential backers. Among the most notable were Jenn Wexler and Larry Fessenden of Glass Eye Pix, with a unique maniac-in-the-woods chiller called THE RANGER”
Fessenden sits with Sam Zimmerman and hand-picks a variety of scary flicks from Shudder’s collection.
From The Film stage:
Cheap Thrills director E.L. Katz is assembling quite the cast for his follow-up Small Crimes, with Robert Forster, Jacki Weaver, Green Room‘s Macon Blair, Gary Cole, Larry Fessenden, and Molly Parker all joining Game of Thrones regular Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in the thriller slated for next year. Of particular interest is that the script is also co-penned (along with Katz) by Blair, who is also currently working on his feature debut. Coster-Waldau plays the lead, a former cop who gets out of prison and returns to his hometown to start fresh, only to get entangled in the same hullabaloo he originally left behind. The film is an adaptation of a 2008 novel and is currently in production in Montreal.
Similar to the famed Sundance Labs that have helped foster the careers of such future A-list filmmakers as Quentin Tarantino and Cary Fukunaga, Shudder Labs — which held its inaugural edition earlier this month — invites a group of select filmmakers to attend a week-long retreat with established industry names to take their works-in-progress to the next level. The difference? Shudder Labs focuses its mentorship efforts on filmmakers working in the horror genre, providing them with the guidance of such genre vets as writer/director Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, The Last Winter), Snowfort Pictures CEO Travis Stevens and Lindsay Peters, Industry Director of the genre-centric Fantasia Film Festival and Director of the Frontières International Co-Production Market.
