Actors set for ‘Banshee’

Blair Erickson directs horror film

Ted Levine, Katia Winter and Michael McMillian will star in the horror film “The Banshee Chapter,” with Blair Erickson making his feature directorial debut from his own script.

Zachary Quinto’s Before the Door Pictures is partnered with Sunchaser Entertainment and German producer Christian Arnold-Beutel on the project in a deal announced early this month. Sunchaser’s Stephanie Riggs and BTD’s Corey Moosa are producing, and Arnold-Beutel, Quinto, Neal Dodson, Ben Samuels and Sean Akers are exec producing. Lensing begins this week in New Mexico.

Winter portrays a female journalist who follows the mysterious trail of a missing friend, played by McMillian, who had been experimenting with mind-altering chemicals developed in secret government drug tests. Levine plays a counterculture novelist with a penchant for substance abuse and firearms.

BTD’s first feature, J.C. Chandor’s “Margin Call,” premiered at Sundance and will be released domestically by Roadside Attractions and Lionsgate on Oct. 21. The company is currently in post-production on an untitled romantic comedy that wrapped in May.

Levine was seen in “Shutter Island,” and Winter was in “Arena.” McMillian has a recurring role on “True Blood.”

Levine is represented by Robbie Kass of Kass & Stokes Management. Winter is repped by Innovative Artists and Schachter Entertainment in the States and the BWH Agency in the U.K.
