Principal photography has begun on HOAX, an upcoming horror feature starring Ben Browder ("Farscape", "Stargate"), Hutch Dano ("Zeke and Luther", ZOMBEAVERS), Cheryl Texiera ("Girl Meets World", "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), Shoshanna Bush (FIRED UP), Brian Thompson (DRAGONHEART, JOE DIRT), Max Decker ("All My Children", "Days of Our Lives"), Matt Reidy ("Scandal", "Mad Men") and Anthony Ray Parker (THE MATRIX, THE FRIGHTENERS).
A love letter to monster movies of the past, HOAX tells the story of an investigation into a camping trip gone wrong, turning into a fight for survival when the team, including a brilliant primate specialist and led by a ruthless television producer, must come to grips with the possible existence of Bigfoot.
HOAX is being directed by Matt Allen and produced by Mitch Dickman (ROLLING PAPERS, HANNAH RANCH) and Michael Haskins (DECAY, GNAW).
Special effects and make up artist William Munns (THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD, SWAMP THING, THE BEASTMASTER) will be providing creature design and legendary composer and sound designer Alan Howarth (ARMY OF DARKNESS, THEY LIVE, STARGATE, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA) will score the film and provide sound design.
Other key members include Director of Photography, Scott Park and Co-Producer, Chadwick Struck.
HOAX is being made possible through the support of the State of Colorado's exceptional film incentive, and the people of Lake City.
Projected wrap for principal photography is set at September 2nd, 2016.
