Azura Skye, Bill Sage, John Hennigan

Shooting set to start in New York next week

Azura Skye, Bill Sage and John Hennigan have come on board to topline Dena Hysell’s indie horror-thriller “The Factory” for Rumpus Room Prods.

Sirad Balducci (“Gun Hill Road”) and Hysell are producing with shooting starting next week in New York.

“The Factory,” penned by Golan Ramras based on a story by Isak Borg and Hysell, chronicles a group considering buying an old factory who then get trapped inside trying to escape the demons from the factory’s past.

Hysell, who directed the documentary “The Paladins,” said the story was inspired by recent garment factory fires in Pakistan and Bangladesh.

“How is it possible that a century ago, we figured out how to stop these tragedies here, yet for all our talk of globalization, they continue in other countries?” she added. “Now wrap that question up in a good ghost story and we have a movie that we can’t wait to bring to audiences.”
