Shock first told you about the Vincenzo Natali-produced 388 Arletta Avenue during our American Film Market coverage, providing you with some early sales artwork. Today, we’ve received an official release. Read on for casting news and more:

Principal photography has begun on 388 Arletta Avenue :), an unsettling Hitchcockian thriller written and directed by Randall Cole (Real Time, 19 Months). The film stars Nick Stahl (Sin City, Carnivale, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines), Mia Kirshner (Vampire Diaries, L Word, The Black Dhalia) and Devon Sawa (Final Destination, Nikita). Executive producer Vincenzo Natali (Splice, Cube), produced by Steve Hoban (Splice, Ginger Snaps, Ryan) and Mark Smith (The Spine, Ryan).

388 Arletta Avenue 🙂 is filming in Toronto and will be a 2011 release in Canada by eOne Films Canada, in the UK by Optimum Releasing and worldwide sales are being handled by TF1 International.

“388 Arletta Avenue : ) is a wickedly smart mystery-thriller,” says executive producer Vincenzo Natali. “And it’s a story that could not have existed until recently, thanks to the astonishing and invasive technology that is now widely available. The fact that it is possible makes it truly terrifying.”

“388 Arletta Avenue : ) plays with the notion that if you could scratch to beneath the surface of what most supposedly ordinary people present to the world, and even to themselves, you would find very interesting and possibly very dark things,” says Randall Cole. “If exploited, some of those things could even result in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, as it does for our lead character.”
