FilmDistrict Co-Financing ‘The Last Word’

Horror project set for summer 2014 release

Facinelli’s A7SLE Films developed the story, then partnered with Boss Media and brought on Ketai.

Ketai’s credits includes Crackle’s “Chosen,” starring Milo Ventimiglia, and the FEARnet series “Devil’s Night” and “30 Days of Night.”
