‘Twiharder’ eyes distribution

Low-budgeter still seeking distribution

TV thesps John Gearries (“The Young and The Restless”) and Christopher Sean (“The Bold and the Beautiful”) have completed production on “Twiharder,” their spoof on the “Twilight” franchise.

Story centers on a vampire who must face flamboyant werewolves and teenage heartbreak even though he’s 105 years old while a werewolf who looks like a lumberjack is faced with the reality that he just doesn’t have the right look to get the girl — unless he gets a total body makeover.

The filmmakers are seeking distribution on “Twiharder” and are working on a campaign that will capitalize on the release of “Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” on Nov. 16. “Twiharder” was shot in Los Angeles and budgeted at $300,000.

Gearries and Sean also wrote the project and serve as producers for Between the Lines Prods. Italian filmmaker Giorgio Caridi is making his directorial debut on the project, which also stars Laura Niles (“Californication”), Josh Cruze (“Collateral”) and Tanya Zoeller (“Cougar Town”). Also producing are Richie Million Jr. of Wit Philly Prods., Irish producer Emma Owen of Baby Jane Prods., Alessandra Marianelli and Clint Keepin. “Twiharder” began as a Web series and morphed into a full-fledged indie feature following fan response to the first two episodes.

Gearries is represented by Malaky Intl. and DPM Talent, Sean by Abrams Artists and Shelter Entertainment.
