Mount Savage, Pompian plot pics

Shooting on 'e-Strangers' to begin in January

HOLLYWOOD — Mount Savage Prods. has teamed with former Crusader Entertainment exec Paul Pompian to finance and produce three films.

First pic, budgeted at $4 million, is the thriller “e-Strangers,” which Pompian will produce; TV writer Jaron Summers co-scripted. Shooting will begin in January in Chicago.

All three titles are being fully financed by Mount Savage, bankrolled and headed by CEO Woody Norris, who is chairman-chief exec of American Technology.

Norris, a successful entrepreneur and self-taught inventor, holds 44 U.S. patents. His latest invention is an Air Scooter that won him Popular Science magazine’s Grand Award last year.

Shingle also is developing “1-800 for Murder,” penned by Norris and Summers, about a college student whose CIA father constantly travels. In his father’s secure room, the son finds a phone book filled with 800 numbers that involves a technology designed to kill terrorists.

Company is developing a potential franchise with “Windows,” a special effects-driven pic about a scientist working on wormholes, windows in space that permit a traveler to span a great distance by merely stepping through one.
