Tosta’s character, Liv, joins Cage’s character, The Janitor, in their bid to survive a hellish night trapped inside an abandoned family entertainment center populated by possessed animatronics.
“I’m so excited to be working with Nicolas Cage, who has always been one of my favorite actors, in this totally fun and unique feature film,” said Emily Tosta.
“When I first saw Emily in Mayans M.C., I was struck by her unique combination of toughness and sensitivity and knew immediately we found our perfect Liv,” said Lewis.
Production is underway in Atlanta on the film, which also stars Beth Grant (No Country for Old Men), Ric Reitz (The Resident) and Chris Warner (Machete).
Foresight Unlimited is handling worldwide sales and will present the film at the European Film Market later this month.
Landmark Studio Group has joined Landafar Entertainment, JD Entertainment, Saturn Films, and Screen Media Ventures to produce the film in association with Baffin Media Limited with the support of Great Point Media.
“We are thrilled to be working with Nicolas, Emily and this amazing team to produce what is sure to be a future genre classic,” said Landmark Studio Group CEO David Ozer.
The screenplay was written by G.O. Parsons. Landmark’s CEO, David Ozer (Dirk Gently, Wynonna Earp), Grant Cramer (Lone Survivor), and Jeremy Davis (The Street Racer), are producing along with Cage and Mike Nilon.
Foresight Chairman Mark Damon, Screen Media Ventures President David Fannon and SVP of Worldwide Acquisitions Seth Needle are executive producers.
