Petty, McKenny first out of the gate
Effective immediately, the two entities will begin developing a number of new horror films. J.T. Petty (The Burrowers) begins this fall on There’s No Place Like Home. Meanwhile, James Felix McKenney (Automatons) is prepping Hypothermia, a creature feature, for a winter start.
“My producing partners Peter Phok and Brent Kunkle and all of us at Glass Eye Pix are very excited to able to continue our mission of making auteur-driven genre movies with this collaboration with Dark Sky films,” says Fessenden in a press release. “We’ve had a great dialogue ramping into it with Greg Newman, Marie-Therese Guirgis and Senior Producer Derek Curl and we all see eye to eye on what these movies are going to be like. I think the fans are going to be especially excited. We’ve got great talent creating original material; a little bit pulpy, a little bit high-brow. Can’t wait to get started.”
