CANNES (June 15, 2020) – Clay Epstein’s Film Mode Entertainment (FME) in partnership with BondIt Media Captial is pleased to announce of WITH TEETH, a high-octane, sexy horror film that raises the bar for commercially viable genre films. Malin Åkerman is serving as an executive producer for the feature. The film will be introduced to buyers for the first time at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival’s Marché du Film virtual platform.
The film will be directed by K. Asher Levin and produced by K. Asher Levin, Daniel Cummings & Zack Imbrogno. BondIt Medial Capital’s Matthew Helderman, Luke Taylor and Grady Craig alongside Film Mode’s Clay Epstein and Malin Akerman serve as the executive producers for the film which is currently in pre-production. Lydia Hearst is co-executive producer. The film is written by Levin along with Zack Imbrogno. Packaging for WITH TEETH was put together by Sola Fasehun, an agent at Buchwald. Sola is helping to develop the MP Lit and Indie Film Divisions at Buchwald. WITH TEETH is the first package under Buchwald's newly formed Indie Film division.
The powerful, female-lead cast features Lydia Hearst (Z NATION, BETWEEN WORLDS, GOSSIP GIRL, and THE HAUNTING OF SHARON TATE) and Kara Hayward (MOONRISE KINGDOM, ISLE OF DOGS, and US). The talented team is rounded out by Jack Donnelly (ATLANTIS) with additional casting news to come. Malin Åkerman is also eyeing a key-role in the film.
WITH TEETH follows a group of superstar Internet influencers who are drawn to a reclusive billionaire’s mansion only to find themselves trapped in the lair of a horrifyingly evil vampire. The only way out is to be saved by a famous online gamer (Hayward) and an old school vampire hunter, who is set in his ways.
“With Teeth is a fresh, fun and pulse pounding take on the Vampire genre. With this remarkable cast and filmmaking team, we’re excited for the film to find its audience.” Said Epstein.
“I’m thrilled to be producing this film. The script, written and to be directed by my friend Asher Levin, is a daring new take on the vampire genre, with themes relevant to the times we’re living in. Coupled with the amazing cast we’re putting together, I’m excited to help bring Asher’s vision to life!” Said Åkerman.
