Revolver Picture Company and Random Bench are teaming up to produce independent filmmaker Jason Banker’s next feature, Variety has learned exclusively.

Banker directed horror-thrillers “Toad Road” and “Felt” and the documentary “My Name is Faith.” The untitled upcoming project will be set in the jungles of South America. Revolver will fully finance, and the label’s Nick Phillips and Kelly Wagner will produce alongside Random Bench’s Adrian Salpeter and Liz Levine.

“Toad Road,” produced by Random Bench and Banker, was executive produced by Elijah Wood through his horror film company SpectreVision. Banker won best director for “Toad Road” at the 2012 Fantasia International Film Festival.

Amplify is releasing “Felt,” starring Amy Everson and described as a feminist psychological thriller in which a woman creates an alter ego to ovecome the trauma inflicted by men in her life.

Random Bench’s latest feature film, the thriller “Even Lambs Have Teeth,” is currently in post-production with WTF Films/France handling international sales.

Revolver’s first two films, “Haunt” and “Midnight,” were distributed in 2014 by IFC Midnight, and “Devil’s Backbone Texas” was released last month from Fox Digital Studios.
