For They Live in the Grey (fka The Uncanny), I reteamed with The Vang Brothers after our success on Bedeviled. After almost three years of development, we were excited to go into production in summer of 2018 with an amazing cast led by Michelle Krusiec (Hollywood) and Ken Kirby (Grand Hotel, Dynasty). As the principal producer, I’ve been deeply enmeshed in every major decision from script notes to casting to physical production to sales and distribution. We recently brought on CAA to sell US rights and are excitedly looking forward to taking the film to market.
I was especially proud to help Abel and Burlee recognize their goal to have Asian leads in this film – a goal that was often resisted as we initially sought to get the project off the ground. It’s an incredibly diverse cast and set that I believe is a strong model for how film can – and should – be made.
