Auds to write end of film

'Power of Few' invites online edit

The day when audiences will be able to decide the ending of the films they watch is drawing closer.

Director/writer Leone Marucci and actress Q’orianka Kilcher (“The New World”) have invited online auds to determine the final cut of their new pic, “The Power of Few,” via a digital editing contest dubbed “Scene 64.” Using raw film footage and editing tools on the film’s Web site, participants can cut a scene from the film. One of the favorites, as voted by fans, will be used in the finished movie and the winner will receive a screen credit.

“Scene 64” features Kilcher and co-star Jesse Bradford (“Flags of Our Fathers”) in an action sequence shot on location in New Orleans. The pair co-star with an ensemble cast, including Christopher Walken and Christian Slater.

On the site, players can download pages of Maurcci’s script, access a video library containing all footage shot on location, and edit the scene as they envision it. Entrants will also have access to audio tracks from the film’s score by Mike Simpson.

“We’re doing something that’s never been done before,” said Kilcher. “We’re creating a direct connection between a passionate global audience and Hollywood, with an Internet connection being the only requirement.”

In addition to Walken and Slater, the film’s ensemble cast includes Moon Bloodgood, (“Terminator Salvation”), Nicky Whelan (“Hall Pass”), Devon Gearhart (“Changeling”), Jordan Prentice (“In Bruges”), Navid Negahban (Fox’s “24”) and rap artist Juvenile.

“The Power of Few” was written, directed and produced by Leone Marucci under his Steelyard Pictures banner; produced by Q’orianka Kilcher’s iQ Films; exec-produced by Todd Trosclair, Roy Kurtluyan, Whitney Kroenke; and produced by Jimmy Holcomb, Jay Thames, Roy Scott Macfarland and Fred D’Amico
