Actor/Filmmaker Spencer Squire has just wrapped his first feature as a director, and he had a pretty incredible cast to help him do it.
It was revealed this week that filming on the upcoming horror-thriller ‘Abandoned‘ recently wrapped. The film stars Emma Roberts, John Gallagher Jr. and two-time Oscar nominee Michael Shannon.
Abandoned follows a mother, father, and infant son as they move into a remote farmhouse, which harbors a dark, tragic history. As their home’s past is revealed, the mother’s fragility escalates to a state of psychosis that jeopardizes her own safety and that of her newborn son.
The movie, which sounds low budget, was fully financed through the partnership between Vertical Entertainment and Three Point Capital.
In a joint statement, the companies had this to say…
Abandoned begins a new chapter for Vertical Entertainment and Three Point Capital and we could not be more excited to be partnered together on this journey. As we successfully did with Abandoned, our financing strategy moving forward will be hyper-focused on the symmetry of art and commerce making sure that the ratio of story, talent (both in front of and behind the camera) and spend equates to a fantastic consumer experience that is beneficial to both Vertical’s and Three Point’s bottomline.
No word on when this movie is expected to be released, but we’re assuming it might have a release date in 2022, maybe around Halloween?
In the meantime, you can catch Emma Roberts in the upcoming Marius Balchunas film, About Fate.
