Regular readers should be familiar with the name Andrew Jones.
The man behind Wales-based production company, North Bank Entertainment, Jones recently co-wrote and produced director James Plumb’s Night Of The Living Dead: Resurrection, a re-imagining of George A. Romero’s seminal 1968 shocker.
After securing global distribution for NOTLD:R, Jones teamed up with Plumb again for Silent Night, Bloody Night: The Homecoming, a re-working of the obscure 1974 slasher flick, with Plumb once more the man behind the cameras.
Principal photography has now wrapped on SNBN and the film is now firmly into post-production.
So what’s next for Jones?
Well, we here at AndyErupts can exclusively reveal that Jones will be continuing his partnership with Plumb, though with roles reversed, for an original project entitled The Amityville Asylum.
FROM THE PRESS RELEASE
UK based production company North Bank Entertainment, in association with Mad Science Films, will begin principal photography on THE AMITYVILLE ASYLUM, their third collaboration with financiers Independent Moving Pictures, in January 2013.
The three companies have previously collaborated on ‘Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection’, which will be released later this year by Grindstone Entertainment Group & Lionsgate Home Entertainment in the USA and 4Digital Media in the UK, as well as ‘Silent Night, Bloody Night: The Homecoming’ which is currently in post-production. THE AMITYVILLE ASYLUM will be written, produced and directed by North Bank Entertainment’s Andrew Jones with Robert Graham of Independent Moving Pictures and James Plumb of Mad Science Films as executive producers.
The synopsis is as follows,
Lisa Templeton begins a new job as a cleaner at High Hopes Hospital, a mental institution in Amityville, Long Island. Initially delighted to get the job, Lisa soon realises that all is not as it seems. Intimidated by staff and the psychotic ramblings of the patients, she is further unnerved by apparent supernatural occurrences on the night shift. To preserve her sanity Lisa must uncover the mysterious history of the institution and it’s inmates. But the truth is far more terrifying than she could ever imagine.
Jones had the following to say on the project, “I am delighted to be teaming up again with Independent Moving Pictures and Mad Science Films for THE AMITYVILLE ASYLUM, and particularly excited to be directing this project. We intend to utilise that creepy staple of the horror genre, the insane asylum, to combine supernatural scares with real life horror and take audiences on an unrelenting, terrifying ride.”
Principal photography is slated to begin on January 9th, 2013.
