ACQUISITION

Gravitas Ventures will release the horror/thriller “All Light Will End” in November, Variety has learned exclusively.

It was written and directed by Chris Blake.

The story centers on a young, successful horror novelist whose new book is taking the genre by storm. Her father, the police chief of her small hometown, investigates murders and foul play too grim for their bucolic life. As she and her friends settle in for a relaxing weekend at her childhood home, the dark secret at the crux of her success stirs in her dreams and seeps into her reality.

PRODUCTION COMPLETED

Richard Thomas, Lynn Mancinelli, Emrhys Cooper, and Kristin Carey have wrapped production on Tony Germinario’s “The Price for Silence.”

Mancinelli stars as a flawed but strong woman who is forced to confront her past so it can no longer define her. Thomas stars as a man who has it all, and Cooper stars as Mancinelli’s equally troubled brother.

Germinario, who is the writer, director and producer, directed the 2017 film “Bad Frank” starring Tom Sizemore, Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, and Brian O’Halloran.

Music for “The Price for Silence” was composed by Paul Carbonara, former guitarist for the band Blondie.
