EXCLUSIVE: Oscar nominee and Golden Globe winner Sally Kirkland (Anna) and Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp) have signed on to star alongside Sparkle Soojian, Dawna Lee Heising, Vida Ghaffari and newcomer Ollie Ameera in the thriller Film Fiend, from director Michael S. Rodriguez, which is currently in production in California.
In the film, Gary Augustyn (Ameera) begins to blur reality with his twisted love of classic horror films and obsession for the late-night horror personality Dara (Soojian), beginning to stalk her and slowly dragging her into his sick web of madness for a deadly game of cat and mouse. Kirkland will play Gary’s tough-as-nails and protective mother Emma, with Erik Anthony Russo, Samantha Wolf, Drew Eash and Debra Dutch rounding out the cast.
Lee Turner wrote the script, with Joseph Kelbie Williamson set to produce in conjunction with Rodriguez and MSR Studios. Kirkland is repped by Greene and Associates and McCaffrey Talent Management.
