Hannover House Partners with Illusion Film Studios On 3-D Feature Production of “Dances With Werewolves”
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hannover House, the entertainment distribution division of Target Development Group, Inc. (Pinksheets: TDGI) (Other: www.HannoverHouse.com), has partnered with producer Rohan Ghodsi’s Illusion Film Studios for the production of “Dances With Werewolves,” a thriller by screenwriter David Chirchirillo based on the legendary, supernatural transformative powers of some Native American Indian warriors. The film will be produced in 3-D for theatrical release in 2012 through Hannover House, which will also represent the film for sales and licensing throughout all of North and South America.
Chad Ferrin (“Someone’s Knocking At The Door”) will direct the film, with Nicole Reid and Niklas Larsson sharing producing duties with Ghodsi. Hannover House principals Eric Parkinson and Fred Shefte are Executive Producers.
“The legend of Native American warriors transforming themselves into enormously powerful wolves is centuries old,” said Hannover House C.E.O., Eric Parkinson. “But it’s a concept that for many audiences was only recently re-introduced through the successful ‘Twilight’ series of books and films. We think that screenwriter David Chirchirillo has skillfully crafted a commercial thriller around this legend, and that Rohan, Chad and the entire production team will make a terrific movie from this property.”
The film will commence principal photography on October 24, 2010 in Michigan, with full delivery scheduled for September, 2011 and U.S.A. theatrical release set for February, 2012. Casting is currently underway for principal stars, with key talent to be announced in July.
Other upcoming theatrical releases from Hannover House include the Joel Schumacher thriller “Twelve” on July 30, and the Sundance 2010 Film Festival Audience Award Winner, “HappyThankYouMorePlease” on September 3. Upcoming DVD and Blu-Ray releases from Hannover House include the action-thriller, “Boilermaker,” the critically-praised drama, “Cook County” and director Abel Ferarra’s “Chelsea on the Rocks,” starring Ethan Hawke and the late Dennis Hopper in one of his last film appearances.
