Flat Earth rolls in action

F/x house forms prod'n arm to develop pics

Visual f/x and post-production shop Flat Earth Prods. Inc. has launched Flat Earth Entertainment to co-produce as well as develop its own slate of pics. The company would produce the effects for the films.

The first two projects the Burbank-based company is co-executive producing under the new banner include the indie pics “Final Voyage” and “Intrepid,” with Andrew Stevens’ Phoenician Entertainment.

“Final Voyage” deals with a group of terrorists who, during an attempted robbery on a cruise ship, accidentally blast a hole in the vessel, ultimately sinking it.

Actors Dylan Walsh, Erika Eleniak, Ice-T and Claudia Christian star. Jim Wynorski helms the $1.2 million pic from a script by J. Everitt Morley and Noble Henry.

James Coburn stars in the action thriller “Intrepid,” about an ocean liner that is struck by a giant tsunami wave and overturned, similar to “The Poseidon Adventure.” John Putch (“Valerie Flake”) helms.

Flat Earth’s co-founders Kevin Kutchaver, Kevin O’Neill and Doug Beswick will co-executive produce both films, with Kutchaver also serving as second unit director on “Final Voyage.”

The company has three other pics in development inhouse, which it plans to sell at the American Film Market, including:

  • The sci-fi action pic “Perdition,” about a maintenance vehicle and its crew, who are drawn into the middle of an explosive prison break. Chris Walas (“The Fly 2”) is in talks to helm from a script penned by Matthew Feitshans (“Dead Presidents”). Doug Beswick executive produces.

  • “Neuroceptor,” about mercenaries who release a deadly airborne disease while hijacking weapons at a military base. Scott Narrie and Don Pugsley penned the script.

  • And “Alien Harvest,” about a group of friends who shoot an alien.

Flat Earth, launched in 1995, creates f/x for Universal’s “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Xena: Warrior Princess.” It also created over 60 visuals for New Line’s “Blade.”
