Reps from Anchor Bay Films informed us today that the company has acquired Slasher Film’s Nothing to Fear.
Slasher Films is the new horror label conceived by guitar hero Slash and the producing team of Rob Eric and Academy Award-winning producer Michael Williams (Session 9, Transsiberian).
Nothing to Fear is the first film to be produced in the Slasher Films slate. The film will be directed by Anthony Leonardi III. Leonardi has been the lead creature artist and storyboard artist for such films as Constantine, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Rango and the upcoming 47 Ronin. Slash will be co-producing the score of the movie.
Nothing to Fear is about a family whose journey towards a better life in a small town is savagely derailed by a charismatic but emotionally conflicted man of the cloth.
Stemming from folklore surrounding the actual town of Stull, Kansas, generations of residents and outsiders alike have proclaimed Stull to be one of the seven known gateways to Hell, where once a year, the Devil will rise from the towns modest graveyard to walk the Earth. For decades, television, music, movies, and more have cautiously addressed the town; its horror is so infamous, even Pope John Paul II refused to fly over its grounds. Nothing to Fear finally pulls the folklore to the forefront and reveals the unsettling fact and fiction rumbling beneath the surface.
Anne Heche, James Tupper, Willa Holland, Rafi Gavron and Jennifer Stone star.
