DefTone Pictures Studios Inc continues to put Buffalo, New York on the map with their film productions. Currently in preproduction is their next feature film: a horror comedy entitled A Grim Becoming. Directed by Adam R Steigert (Ombis 2013) and written by Janeen Avery, Christopher Brechtel, Mark Mendola and Adam R Steigert.
DefTone Pictures Studios Incâ€™s search to find the actor to portray the lead character of Raphael is over. Raphael is a young, bitter executive who is on the verge of losing a multimillion dollar architectural when a sudden death in his family forces him to return to his home town of Metzburgh. With the role of Raphael depending a lot on an actorâ€™s physical abilities, casting the role was a challenge. DefTone is proud to announce that Brandon Williams has signed on to play the role of Raphael. Brandon is an actor that can hold his own with his comedic abilities and he should take the character of Raphael to a new level.
The official theatrical teaser trailer is set to be released May 2013 and will feature a sneak-peek look at the character of â€śDeathâ€ť who goes by the more human name of Magoo. A Grim Becoming stars Brandon Williams, Britt Griffith, Devanny Pinn, Bill Oberst Jr., Michael Sciabarrasi, Jessica Cameron, Melantha Blackthorne, Lynn Lowry, Patrick Mallette, Valerie Lynn Hanna, Melyssa Jade, Mike Sarcinelli, Christopher Brechtel and Aryn Fitzgerald.
DefTone Pictures Studios Inc begins principal photography on A Grim Becoming starting June 1st, 2013. The film has a tentative release date of June 21, 2014.
