Sign of the Phoenix
Signs, which has been shooting since mid-September, is set in Bucks County, Philadelphia, and revolves around the mysterious appearance of an array of enormous circles and lines carved into the crops of a farm family. Rory Culkin, the younger brother of Macaulay and Kieran, has also been cast based on his performance in You Can Count on Me (alongside Ruffalo) for which he was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award.
The House of the
Based on a script by Altman (Free Enterprise) and Dave Parker, the story takes place on an island off the coast of Florida that is inhabited by zombies, monsters and creatures that wreak havoc on land, in the air and in the water. A rave attracts a group of partygoers to the island where they must battle for their lives against an evil entity. The House of the Dead games are very cinematic, Altman said. The games are divided into chapters and use filmic camera angles to keep the action flowing. They provide a great template for us to work with in the film."
