Canadian director David Hackl is hitting Kickstarter for his new indie horror. Hackl, a veteran of the horror genre, started out as the production designer on the Saw films and went on to direct Saw V. His next film GRIZZLY, starring Billy Bob Thornton, Thomas Jane and James Marsden, hits the screens later in 2014.
Hackl has teamed up with writer Michael Gilvary, (executive story editor and producer on Dick Wolf’s CHICAGO FIRE), who has created Earthworks; an intense and chilling story set in the trenches of World War 1. The film centers on 5 young US soldiers who are lured away by the fog of No Man's Land while on a mission on their first night at the Front. They lose their bearings and sanity.
At the top end of the pledges is the chance to play a background extra. At £4500 this might seem expensive but unusually it includes flights and accommodation for Croatia where it will be filmed. Not only that, they will also pay for flights and accommodation for a SECOND trip included in the package, for a screening in LA or NYC where you can hang out with cast and crew yet again.
There are also top pledges that include a week shadowing the director on set, great for anyone contemplating a directing career or just someone wanting to see the Wizard-of-Oz stuff.
Every pledge over £30 /$51 includes a download of the movie making donors the first to see and won the film and as of this week EVERY donation of £75 and over gets a punky graphic t-shirt. Below is a small sampling of pledge amounts and perks, for the full list be sure to visit Earthworks Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/781054231/earthworks-0
The cast line-up includes Daryl Sabara of SPY KIDS fame, who also stars in Eli Roth’s upcoming THE GREEN INFERNO, Michael Zegen best known as Benny Siegel in BOARDWALK EMPIRE and Randall in THE WALKING DEAD and the Canadian actor Adam Butcher known for his teen debut in SAINT RALPH and for the Tribeca award-winning DOG POUND. Adam will soon be seen in WOLVES with two superheroes, Jason Momoa (AQUAMAN) and Lucas Till (HAVOK).
