Dark Sky Films has announced that they are producing and distributing Jason R. Miller's directorial debut, Unidentified. We've also been provided with the first photos from the movie.
Dark Sky Films, a unit of MPI Media Group, today announced that it will produce and distribute UNIDENTIFIED, a sci-fi thriller written and directed by Jason R. Miller*, story by Eddie Mui, Parry Shen and Jason R. Miller. Principal photography is currently underway.
UNIDENTIFIED marks the feature directorial debut of Jason R. Miller, co-producer and second unit director of the horror films Hatchet 2 and Frozen.
The movie is an original mix of sci-fi-thriller and horror. During a wild weekend in Las Vegas, four young friends get into trouble with a loan shark and must skip town in a hurry. But gambling problems may be the least of their worries after they get stranded in the Nevada desert. One of the guys discovers a mysterious metal fragment, then promptly goes missing during the night. When the remaining three catch up with their lost friend, there's something different about him. As his condition worsens, the others realize that something unearthly might be stalking them in the desert.
UNIDENTIFIED stars Parry Shen (the Hatchet franchise, Better Luck Tomorrow), Colton Dunn (Key and Peele), Eddie Mui (Call Back) and Eric Artell (Pair of Kings). Parry Shen and Eddie Mui are also the producers, along with director Jason R. Miller.
Dark Sky's recent successes include the Hatchet thrillers, Stitches, Wake Wood and The House of the Devil. Among MPI's diverse hits are The Innkeepers, The Killer Inside Me, Cairo Time and A Bag of Hammers.
Jason R. Miller said, "I am grateful and thrilled to be partnered with Dark Sky and MPI. Together, they have been responsible for some of my favorite horror films."
