Tomorrow, an all new horror movie by a former Yoda winning Best Producer is coming out in theaters. We asked him the six most important questions that can be asked…
Bargain is a Lucian film being released by Lucian. It stars Tom Selleck (you’ll see why later) as the older husband of a young woman played by Anna Faris (you’ll see why later). Also appearing is a mysterious well dressed man (Christopher Plummer in his second Lucian film).
The husband, who is never named, wakes his wife with breakfast in bed. But it’s not just a kind gesture. He has some bad news to break and it involves a bargain he made just after they met.
The entire short takes place in the bedroom, a set we constructed on stage.
This is very much an “eternal present” film.
I wrote this piece as I searched for a new tale of modern horror for publication. Although currently very short I hope to expand it after I get a first round of reviews.
For years I have been sitting on a “Tommy Can You Hear Me?” award which allows for a free film based on a Who song. One night, not that long ago, I went searching through The Who’s vast repertoire until I found a song called “Bargain” which was new to me. The song is about doing anything for the grace of Jesus but I wondered if it could be twisted in another way. From there the idea came to me and it was a quickly written story. Searching my other awards I found an “Anna Faris is Tough” award that thrust her into the role of the younger, devoted wife. A Christopher Plummer talent voucher filled the role of the well dressed man and another allowed Clive Barker to direct for free. Making my own poster and website meant the entire film was free, since I saw no reason to spend any extra money on ad budget than the 40 million my filmography and items allow me. While this may seem like a quick and cheap film it actually matters to me since I want to expand and sell it. So I’m pushing for as many reviews as possible and will reward everyone who provides one with an HTG-Ray (if they have a player) or some other item.
Bargain hits theaters tomorrow, February 1st, 2013.
