Filming will begin in late 2011 on Tracey’s Slumba Party, according to Arclight Films.
From the studio:
Arclight Films horror/sci-fi unit Darclight (www.arclightfilms.com) has picked up foreign rights to director Louise Alston’s (All My Friends are Leaving Brisbane) next film, a horror musical spoof entitled Tracey’s Slumba Party. Darclight will take charge of foreign sales outside Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
Arclight Managing Director Gary Hamilton announced that the film would be produced by Michael Robertson and Kent Smith under their new genre banner Croweater Entertainment, a production alliance between Robertson’s Prodigy Movies and Smith’s producer/distributor Kojo Pictures. Darclight will produce with Croweater.
The film centers on a teen girls’ sleepover gone-wrong that quickly evolves from “manicures and boy talk to murder and mayhem,” says Smith. Alston expects to start filming later this year in South Australia with stars Kate Geck and Mel Sano from the cult punk girl group “Toxic Lipstick” (www.toxiclipstick.com).
“Darclight are pleased to support this exciting new production team,” says Hamilton. “Both Michael and Kent are experienced producers in the world of low budget, genre-driven films, and their talents in Croweater present a potent combination. We’re looking forward to Tracey’s Slumba Party helping keep Darclight at the forefront of horror films aimed at young audiences worldwide.”
