Ron Perlman, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Tom Bower and Devon Graye are rounding out the cast of indie thriller “Angry Little God,” opposite Mark Webber and Rutina Wesley.
Principal photography begins Tuesday with Daniel Stamm directing the English-language remake of the Thai thriller “13: Game of Death.” IM Global’s genre label Octane is producing and financing the film alongside Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik and Kiki Miyake’s Little Magic Films.
IM Global’s Stuart Ford, Deepak Nayar and Michael Roban, and Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions are executive producing with Somsak Techaratanaprasert. Dimension Films will release the film in the U.S.
Stamm and his writing partner David Birke adapted the script from the original film which follows a bright but meek social services coordinator who’s drowning in debt and desperate as he’s about to marry the love of his life. He receives a mysterious phone call informing him that he’s on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a cash prize of over $6 million, He accepts the challenge, but even with thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, he realizes he’s in over his head.
Octane wrapped principal photography last week on Catherine Hardwicke’s erotic thriller “Plush,” produced by Blumhouse. It will co-finance “Sacrament,” to be directed by Ti West and produced by Eli Roth, starting production on Oct. 15.
