Gould, Akkad and Allard are The Violent Kind


The Hollywood Reporter says that Andy Gould and Malek Akkad, who produced Dimension’s 2007 Halloween revival, and Jeffrey Allard, who executive produced New Line’s two “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” reboots, are teaming up for The Violent Kind.

They are joined by fellow producers Michael Ferris Gibson and Jeremy Platt and executive producer K’Dee Miller on the indie-financed feature, which revolves around a group of young bikers who find themselves tormented by mysterious and gory goings-on in a secluded farmhouse.

The principals summarize the film as centering on a “party (that) quickly turns wild with a typical biker mix of booze, drugs and strippers but shifts into something the likes of nothing they have ever known,” including “mysterious figures glimpsed amongst the woods, ominous sounds heard and friends found injured.”

Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores, known professionally as the Butcher Brothers, are directing from a script they wrote. The Butcher Brothers are reuniting a host of actors who starred in The Hamiltons, including Cory Knauf and Bret Roberts. They also have cast “Heroes” co-star Taylor Cole. Filming begins this month in Southern California.
