’24’ vet clocks in as feature helmer

Krantz makes 'Sublime' move

Tony Krantz, one of the original exec producers of “24,” is segueing into feature helming with “Sublime,” the second direct-to-vid horror pic from Warner’s Raw Feed Prods., a venture Krantz helped launch this spring.

Tom Cavanagh stars as a patient who becomes trapped in a hospital where people come to die. Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs and Kathleen York also appear in the pic, penned by co-producer Erik Jendresen. It is expected to hit stores in 2007.

Krantz, a former topper of Imagine TV, created Raw Feed with Daniel Myrick (“The Blair Witch Project”) and “The X-Files” vet John Shiban in March. Each will take turns helming genre fare for the series, with all to be released direct-to-vid.

Shiban helmed the first pic, “Rest Stop,” which will hit in October; Myrick will take the helm for the third.

Warner has promised budgets of $5 million for the venture, which ties into a larger push into made-fors by the studio.

Warner plans to release 10 to 15 made-fors annually, all with budgets in that range. It is in the process of creating a partnership between its theatrical and homevid divisions to handle all projects outside the Raw Feed series.

The studio recently began lensing its first project under that partnership, “The Dukes of Hazzard: New Beginning,” with “Arrested Development” vet Bob Berlinger at the helm (Daily Variety, June 13).
