Thomas Dekker Stars in Squatters for Newly Formed Wakefield International PicturesProducers Todd Moyer and Julius R. Nasso just unveiled their new project: Wakefield International Pictures LLC. The new film financing and production company plans to produce between four and six films each year, with the first project out of the gate set to be Squatters starring Thomas Dekker and Gabriella Wilde.
Squatters was written by Justin Shilton and will be directed by Martin Weisz (The Hills Have Eyes II). Filming is expected to begin next month in Los Angeles.
The plot: “The film tells the story of a young homeless couple in Venice Beach who move into a mansion in the Pacific Palisades while the owners are on vacation. When the owners come home early, things get complicated.”
Commenting on Squatters, Moyer said, “When I read Justin Shilton’s script—one of the most powerful and beautiful I’ve encountered in years—I felt we just had to make this film. I’ve known director Martin Weisz for many years and we are proud to support him and these terrific lead actors in this endeavor.”
Nasso added, “We’re pleased to be involved with such incredible material, and was hugely impressed with the readings of our two young leads. I think with such an excellent script, Dekker and Wilde have the chance to really embrace these roles and break out on the highest levels. We believe the film has very broad demographic appeal and expect everyone from 15-80 will like it equally!”
