Fort gives shelter to Gay’s ‘Twilight’

New production co. acquires rights to mystery

Newly launched indie shingle the Fort has acquired feature rights to William Gay’s Southern murder mystery “Twilight.”

Principals Chad Feehan ( “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane”) and Amanda Micallef (“Grand Champion”) will produce.

“Twilight” centers on two teen siblings who suspect something’s amiss with their whisky bootlegger father’s burial and soon learn that an undertaker is manipulating the dead in a small Southern town.

Feehan and Micallef joined forces in 2006, when they optioned the memoir “One Ranger,” by H. Joaquin Jackson and David Marion Wilkinson. The project’s now a Texas-Mexico border thriller called “Devil’s Swing,” which they are producing with 2929 Prods. and State Street Pictures.

The duo also recently developed “Venom: The Resurrection of a Hair-Metal God” with screenwriter Eric Nelson and are partnered to produce with John Jacobs of Smart Entertainment. Feehan’s also making his writing and directorial debut with “Underbelly,” a thriller with Micallef producing.
