'Lion' by Melini set to premiere 2017 -
"Man's biggest fear has risen again!"
Italian director and screenwriter Davide Melini (Assistant Director in Dario Argento's "Mother of Tears: The Third Mother", "Penny Dreadful" and "Into the Badlands") will be offering up what looks to be an exceptionally tasty treat later this year with his latest horror short 'Lion'.
Melini surrounded himself with some incredible talents to help him bring "Lion" to life for genre fans. Produced by Luca Vannella ("Avengers", "Thor", "Harry Potter"), Alexis Continente ("Transformers: The Last Knight"), Vincenzo Mastrantonio ( "Moulin Rouge", "The Passion of Christ"), Bobby Holland ("The Dark Knight Rises", "Game of Thrones", "Quantum of Solace"), Ferdinando Merolla ("Troy", "Hannibal Rising"), Roberto Paglialunga and starring Michael Segal ("Colour from the Dark", "Anger of the Dead"), Tania Mercader ("Nosotros seremos libres") as well as introducing Pedro Sánchez as Leon. After a few delays Lion is now in post and is set to premiere later this year.
"An isolated chalet in a snowy forest... A man blinded by alcohol... A woman unable to rebel... And an 8-year-old child troubled and dark... The silent night is broken with cries... the start of a terrible nightmare..."
Lion looks to be a tense atmospheric ride, and we can't wait to see where it takes us! Just take a look at the teaser below and follow Lion, for the most current info.
