‘Playback’ to hit start button

Cast, production set for supernatural thriller

Bennett Robbins Prods. has teamed with Emmett/Furla Films on supernatural thriller “Playback,” with filming to start next month in Grand Rapids, Mich.

“Playback” will star Johnny Pacar in the lead along with Toby Hemingway (“Black Swan”), Brooke Smith (“The Namesake”), Alessandra Torresani (Caprica”), Jonathan Keltz, Ambyr Childers, Daryl Mitchell and Jennifer Missoni.

The film will be produced by John M. Bennett and Lawrence Robbins in conjunction with Randall Emmett and George Furla.

Michael A. Nickles (“Just Peck”) is directing from his own script, centered on high school students digging into their town’s infamous past and unwittingly unlocking a demon that preys upon their classmates. Possessing its victims through video playback, the demon closes in on one specific soul, threatening to expose the town’s deepest, darkest secret.

Bennett Robbins developed the property and financed through private equity. The company was previously involved with “The Betrayed” starring Melissa George and “Coming and Going” directed by Edoardo Ponti, starring Rhys Darby and Sasha Alexander.

Emmett/Furla Films has produced “Righteous Kill” and “Conan.”
