Deskpop Entertainment, the company that recently released 13 Fanboy, a slasher tribute to Friday 13 franchisee of Friday the 13th: a new startDeborah Voorhees, has now secured the distribution rights to director Harley Wallen’s ‘brutal and violent’ urban legend thriller Ashes and bones. Deskpop confirmed that they would give Ashes and bones both a theatrical release and a home video, but have yet to reveal the full release strategy or specific release date (s).
We heard about it for the first time Ashes and bones About two and a half years ago, Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) was expected to be part of the cast. The role that was to be played by Taylor-Compton ended up being filled by Jamie Bernadette (Let’s be mean). Bernadette is joined in the cast by Mel Novak (Bruce Lee’s Game of death), Angelina Danielle Cama (Abstruse), Kaiti Wallen (Agramon’s gate), Jimmy Doom (Kill the Irishman), Erika Hoveland (Eternal code), Mason Heidger (Batman vs. Superman) and Harley Wallen (Tale of tails).
The film was produced by Annette Cama of Cama Productions, Harley and Kaiti Wallen of Painted Creek Production, Joe Williamson of The Williamson Management Company and Nancy Oeswein of Auburn Moon.
Written by Bret Miller, Ash and Bone has the following synopsis:
A troubled teenage girl is taken to the peace and quiet of the countryside by her father and stepmother in an attempt to calm her wild tendency. But after crossing paths with the infamous McKinley family, it becomes clear that sometimes danger lurks in the weeds, ready to strike anytime.
Wallen had this to say about the distribution agreement:
It was really important to find the right distributor for Ashes and bones. I really felt that everyone was doing their best on both sides of the camera. I’ve seen it now in enough festivals and theaters to know that we have success in our hands if it can be heard by our audiences!
Deskpop’s Mat Levy said:
Ashes and bones gives horror fans exactly what they want right from the foreground. It’s scary, bloody, and brings us all to a small town that no onlooker will ever dare to step foot in in real life. We are very proud to launch this spooky film as one of the debut titles on our new Desktop Entertainment label.
