Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #194. Jerome Sable’s Stage Fright

Stage Fright

Director: Jerome Sable
Writer(s): Jerome Sable
Producer(s): Serendipity Point Films’ Ari Lantos, Jonas Bell Pasht.
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Minnie Driver, Meat Loaf, Allie MacDonald and Douglas Smith

As we revert back to his brilliant 2010 short The Legend of Beaver Dam as an indication of better and bigger things to come, while this horror musical Stage Fright (shot in September of ’12) remains in post, its director has soaked himself in more red corn syrup. We could feasibly getting two Jerome Sable films in ’14 with his participation on the ABCs of Death 2 omnibus.

Gist: Minnie Driver plays Kylie Swanson, the enigmatic and haunted star of the Broadway stage, and mother of siblings Camilla (MacDonald) and Buddy (Smith) who find themselves at the centre of the unfolding horror at the camp. Meat Loaf plays Roger McCall, the fallen-from-grace Broadway producer turned camp director.

Release Date: With no mention of the completed film at TIFF or Sundance, we’re guessing that the film may still not be ready. Fall fest showing might be in the cards.
