Indie thriller ‘Evidence’ adds six to cast

'Found footage' story has started lensing in L.A.

Exclusive: Dale Dickey, Caitlin Stasey, Torrey DeVitto, Nolan Gerard Funk, Albert Kuo and Harry Lennix are starring in indie thriller “Evidence.”

Olatunde Osunsanmi (“The Fourth Kind”) has started lensing in and around Los Angeles from a script by John Swetnam. Osumnsamni came on to direct this spring with Marc Platt Prods., Bold Films and Film Engine producing (Daily Variety, April 28).

“Evidence” is a “found footage”-style story that opens in the middle of the desert outside of Los Angeles where a massacre has just occurred. The only evidence at the crime scene is the victim’s personal electronic devices, including a camcorder, Flip Cam and two cell phones — leading to detectives analyzing bits of the found footage to piece together the identity of the ruthless killer.

“When I read ‘Evidence’ I was very jealous I hadn’t written it myself and I feel fortunate to be able to bring this incredibly unique story to life,” Osunsanmi said.

The team behind the upcoming FilmDistrict release “Drive” has reunited for “Evidence” — including Marc Platt and Adam Siegel via Marc Platt Prods. along with David Lancaster and Michel Litvak for Bold Films, and Anthony Rhulen for FilmEngine. Bold Film’s Gary Michael Walters and FilmEngine’s Jake Wagner will exec produce, with Bold Film’s Garrick Dion is a co-producer. Sierra/Affinity is handling international sales on “Evidence.”

Dickey was last seen in “Winter’s Bone” while DeVitto was in “The Rite” and has a recurring role in “Pretty Little Liars.” Funk’s credits include “Triple Dog.” Kuo was in “The Hard Times of RJ Berger”; Stasey was in “Tomorrow When the War Began” and Lennix was in “State of Play.”

DeVitto is repped by APA.
