Yesterday we told you about a new supernatural horror thriller being made called Hellbenders, starring Clifton Collins Jr. (Star Trek), Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption) and Dan Fogler (Fanboys). The movie is about a secret group of elite demonologists in a Brooklyn diocese who battle a terrifying supernatural force that threatens their lives and faith.
We were sent over a batch of images from the film which come from the first day of shooting. We also have some more details to share with you on the film below, and it sounds pretty freakin' cool! It's described as a genre mash up of The Hangover and The Exorcist. Check it out!
Filmmaker JT Petty (“The Burrowers” and “Splinter Cell”) has begun shooting his genre-twisting new movie, HELLBENDERS, in 3D using the very latest cutting edge camera technology.
The production, which top lines Clancy Brown , Clifton Collins, and Dan Fogler as an elite and secretive division of exorcists fighting the worst of the demonic, is described as a genre mash up of “The Hangover” and “The Exorcist.” Lawrence Mattis of Circle of Confusion, which produces the elevated genre hit “The Walking Dead” on AMC, is producing, along with Jon Denny, David Moscow and Offhollywood Picture’s Mark L. Pederson and Aldey Sanchez. The film is being lensed in Brooklyn, NY.
Hellbenders is using the new EPIC camera systems from RED Digital Cinema, which is also being used to shoot Spiderman 4, The Hobbit and Jack The Giant Killer.
Stereoscopic visual effects are being provided by The Molecule.
JT Petty recently sold “Zombie vs Robots: Inherit the Earth” to Sony, based on the IDW graphic novel, with Platinum Dunes and Circle of Confusion producing.
