New York, NY, Raleigh, NC, and Los Angeles, CA. September 6, 2023 – American Picture House Corporation (OTC: APHP), an entertainment company with a focus on producing feature films, limited series, and entertainment enhancing technologies, today provided a corporate update for shareholders.
American Picture House supports the ideals behind the two current industry strikes — brought by the Writers Guild of America (“WGA”) and the Screen Actors Guild (“SAG”) — and joins the many reasonable voices urging for a fair and timely resolution.
Update on Feature Films –
American Picture House commenced preproduction on two feature films, ASK CHRISTINE and DEVIL’S HALF ACRE. Both productions are subject to interim agreements with SAG, with production for each project planned for late 2023 or early 2024.
ASK CHRISTINE is a horror/thriller set in small-town USA. James Bruce (SURVIVOR, INDIVISIBLE: HEALING HATE) is in negotiations to direct based on a script by Danielle Silvie Gershberg. John Luessenhop (TAKERS, TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D) and Bannor Michael MacGregor (BUFFALOED) are producing.
“DEVIL’S HALF ACRE” is an 1870’s period drama with maritime elements set in Coastal Maine, centered around the era’s most notorious poker game. Dashiell Luessenhop will be making his directorial debut based on a script he wrote. Filming is planned for Budapest, Hungary.
American Picture House intends to announce a full-slate of films later this year, including production of THE SECRET WAR, an historical-war drama based on CIA heroes in Laos during the Vietnam era, co-written by William J. Macdonald (ROME, THE SAINT) and John Luessenhop, to be directed by Luessenhop. Filming is planned for Thailand.
