Fellow genre veterans Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D), Jamie Kennedy (Scream), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow), and Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs the World) have come aboard in supporting roles.
Vancouver-based Media House Capital, a senior debt lender to the global film industry, is providing financing against foreign sales. MHC’s managing director Aaron L.
