A new behind the scenes picture has emerged from the set of "All Cheerleaders Die". The movie involves a high school setting and it is a supernatural type thriller written and directed by Lucky McKee and Chris vertson. The film is being produced by Andrew van den Houten and Robert Tonino.
It stars: Caitlin Stasey, anoa Smit-McPhee and has the introduction of Tom Williamson. Executive producer is Arrien Schiltkamp along with Russell Dinstein as co-executive producer.
This production marks the second collaboration involving McKee and Modernciné, who both worked together beforehand on the thriller "The Woman". "All Cheerleaders Die" will be the first time Chris vertson will be working with the company. This project is a re-imagining of a project that McKee and vertson wrote and shot together immediately following graduation from USC Film School 10 years ago.
“All Cheerleaders Die is leading us into the exciting world of popcorn fare, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have the creative freedom that a company like Modernciné provides for writer/directors. This is going to be a thrill-packed extravaganza with a hot young cast to die for,” said McKee and vertson.
“Working on my first collaboration with Mr. vertson and second feature with Mr. McKee is an honor and real opportunity to promote the artist-driven approach I believe in. It’s what Modernciné is all about. Everything begins and ends with the directors’ vion, and with that approach originality and timeless entertainment is born,” said van den Houten.
