Andy, in preparation on the new Spiderman, is currently dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in New York, while Vic prepares to direct Nicholas Cage in the long anticipated Left Behind Series. “But,” says Andy, “when it comes to horses and action sequences, there is nobody on the planet more knowledgeable and seasoned in the art of heavy action direction than Vic. And of course, I am very keen on producing material that Vic directs.”
This surprise tag-team announcement rounds out a well-seasoned A List crew currently lining up to work on the Surprise Blockbuster, including legends such as Producer Billy Badalato, long-time Action Veteran’s Steve Old, Peter White, Stephane Lefebvre, Mike Chute, Jeffry Ong, Casting Director Robyn Owen, Visual Effects Supervisor Stephen Sobisky, and even the mastermind of Cinematography himself, Dean Cundey.

It’s evident Ms. Fontaine has been carefully assembling some of Hollywood’s greatest minds, and has quietly been compiling a team dynamic that can rival even the biggest of studio film releases.
“I am extremely excited to be able to work on a film of this caliber. In my thirty years in the industry, I have never had a script draw me into another world so unique and so completely, that I couldn't put it down! Danica has worked very hard reaching out and pulling in the cream of the crop and the most elite that Hollywood has to offer, and I just can't wait to get started”, says Producer Billy Badalato.
