EXCLUSIVE: APA has signed Josh Waller, whose Toronto film McCanick just sold to Well Go USA. Waller is partners in SpectreVision with Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah. McCanick, produced by Bleiberg Entertainment, is the last pic Cory Montieth starred in before his death from a drug overdose. Pic is dark, gritty noir drama that takes place in a day, as a corrupt narcotics detective (David Morse) hunts down a seemingly harmless young criminal (Montieth) who knows a truth about his past. In addition to writing, producing and directing numerous short films, as well as a number of feature and documentaries in various stages of production with his SpectreVision partners, Waller previously directed Raze and is working on a sequel. Waller is also repped by Jairo Alvarado at 3 Arts Entertainment and attorney Rob Symanski.
EXCLUSIVE: The genre-leaning production company founded as The Woodshed in 2010 by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller has undergone an identity change. The outfit has been rebranded SpectreVision and has also added a music division, teaming with Redbird Music Management’s Tim Husom to form SpectreVision Management. The name change reflects a wider scope as SpectreVision expands into music while continuing to build a film production portfolio.
“As our company began to expand its horizons, the name SpectreVision served to exemplify more our broadened platform: technology capturing the ineffable,” said Elijah Wood. Among SpectreVision’s current slate are horror-comedy Cooties starring Alison Pill and Rainn Wilson; Toad Road, which is set for a theatrical/VOD release this year by Artsploitation; and Iran-set vampire love story A Girl Walks Home At Night which is in post-production.
