‘90210’s’ Shenae Grimes, Rachel Melvin Starring in Horror-Thriller ‘The Rake’

“90210’s” Shenae Grimes, Rachel Melvin, Izabella Miko and Joey Bicicchi are starring in the horror-thriller “The Rake” for Red Band Films, Variety has learned exclusively.

Tony Wash is directing from his own script. The film follows three siblings as they return home to reconcile the murder of their parents 20 years earlier, and discover a startling connection to a local urban legend.

Mike Dozier will produce “The Rake,” while Jason Howard, Tommy Vlahopoulos and Matthew Lamothe will serve as executive producers.

The project came together after Wash’s short “The Muck” debuted at last year’s SXSW.

Red Band Films is the three-year-old genre division of Unified Pictures. Unified produced “The Driftless Area,” William H. Macy’s “Rudderless,” Clark Gregg’s “Trust Me” and “A Single Shot.” Sony recently acquired U.S. rights and most worldwide rights to “The Driftless Area,” starring Zooey Deschanel and Anton Yelchin.

Unified co-founder Keith Kjarval told Variety that Red Band is planning to produce three films a year — matching the current pace of Unified. He pointed to the success of Radius’ “It Follows,” which grossed over $14 million, as evidence of strong audience interest in genre films.

Paradigm is handling domestic sales on “The Rake.”
