Lone Suspect announced last week that production had commenced in Los Angeles on its latest feature film, “Fear, Inc.” Written by Luke Barnett and directed by Vincent Masciale, who are best known for their viral videos on Will Ferrell’s “Funny or Die” website, the film stars Lucas Neff (“Raising Hope”), Caitlin Stasey (TV’s “Reign”), Chris Marquette (“Alpha Dog”) and Stephanie Drake (“Mad Men”). The supporting cast is rounded out with Naomi Grossman (“American Horror Story”), Ashlynn Yennie (“The Human Centipede”), Patrick Renner (“The Sandlot”), Ronnie Gene Blevins (“The Dark Knights Rises”) and “Office Space” star Richard Riehle.

“Fear, Inc.” tells the story of a company of degenerates who can be hired for a premium to bring your greatest fears to life. But after a horror junkie’s customized scare seemingly begins, he and his friends must decide if the company is there to scare them, or actually make them pawns in their own bigger, sicker game. “With the self referential humor of films like ‘Scream’ and ‘Cabin in the Woods,’ and our background with Funny or Die, the goal is to add a large comedic element to the dark material,” said director Masciale.

Barnett and Masciale, along with Heather Kasprzak and Natalie Masciale, are producing “Fear, Inc.” under their Lone Suspect banner. Gabriel Cowan and John Suits of New Artists Alliance as well as Tanner Thomason and Frank Masciale are executive producing the film.
