Producers Rick Finkelstein and Steven Chase (How Sweet It Is, Paulie, Death House…) recently confirmed that Entertainment Factory is in pre-production of two new films with a star-studded cast. "Death House" (recently featured on Dread Central) and "Buddies".
"Buddies" tells the story of two mob wanabees witnessing the murder of one of their own and having to go on the run. Tony and Joey are two low-level mob guys, who always think big but never move up or get any recognition. This leads to everyone in the neighborhood gunning for them…well maybe not everyone, and they thought they only had each other. This action/mob-comedy is being directed by and will also star Louis Lombardi (24 & Sopranos) and Steven Chase (Shut Up & Kiss Me & How Sweet It Is). The film will have an "A-List" cast and host of well-known character actors like Scott L. Schwartz (Ocean’s 11, 12,1 3, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Castle), Mike Starr (Goodfellas, Dumb & Dumber) and Michael Madsen (Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2, Reservoir Dogs, Donnie Brasco).
“Death House” is about four horsemen that are the most notorious serial killers of all time. Robert Englund's weapon of choice is fire; Gunnar Hansen has an unquenchable thirst for human flesh; Bill Moseley is a surgeon, and tends to focus on mutilation and torture; and Doug Bradley shares a bond with spiders, particularly the Brown Recluse Spider, whose poison Bradley is happy to dispense among those unfortunate enough to meet him. All four killers are safely housed in a maximum-security wing in the basement of the infamous Dodhoff Prison, aka THE DEATH HOUSE. This thrilling/terrifying story was written by Jay Black, Brian Herzlinger and Gunnar Hansen, and is being billed as the next “Saw”.
According to Finkelstein and Chase, “The key to making multiple films and making them great, is to team up with the right people.” That is just what they have done with Tony Opedisano and Michael Guarnera of Winbrook Entertainment as well as with Jim Cardwell and Jimmy Cummings of E-T Pictures". Filming for “Death House” and “Buddies” will start late summer 2013.
