Horror genre fan favorite Danielle Harris is set to make her feature directorial debut with the upcoming film ‘Among Friends,’ ShockTillYouDrop is reporting. The screenplay was written by Harris’ friend Alyssa Lobit, who previously penned ‘The Things We Carry.’ There’s no official word yet on what ‘Among Friends’ will be about, but several taglines that have been released. They include “This dinner party’s gonna be killer” and “A game of CLUE gone wrong. Like, totally.”
Harris, who is remembered for starring in several ‘Halloween’ sequels and the 2007 remake and its sequel, will also appear in ‘Among Friends.’ Lobit, who also starred in ‘The Things We Carry,’ has been cast in ‘Among Friends’ as well. The film also stars Chris Backus, Jennifer Blanc Biehn, AJ Bowen, Briane Davis, Dana Daurey, Kamala Jones, Chris Meyer and Tanya Newbould.
Jay Lobit and Bill Allison will serve as executive producers for ‘Among Friends,’ which is set to begin filming in early August. The film will be financed by Three Little Birds and Hollywood Treasures Inc.
Harris and Blanc Biehn, who are long-time friends, recently worked together in ‘The Victim.’ The film, which was written and directed by Michael Biehn, is a Grindhouse-inspired project, and is due out later this year. The film follows a man, James Harrison, played by Ryan Honey, who accidentally kills Harris’ character Mary. Her best friend Annie, played by Blanc Biehn, witnesses the killing, and is pursued by James and his partner Coogan, played by Denny Kirkwood.
