U.S.-Hungarian Co-Production Deal Signed after Cannes
Leomark Studios and Digital Movie Production to Produce "Calculating Euphoria"
Calculating Euphoria, to be directed by Richard Marks (Code Noir, A Kid in Aladdin's Palace) from an original script by award-winning filmmaker, author and playwright, Don Bapst (email@example.com, The Hanged Man), follows film school buddies Jonathan and Brian on a road trip to Hollywood. Along the way, the young wannabes challenge each other to invent the Best Horror Movie Ever. Each begins to spin a tale for the other, casting versions of themselves in the lead roles. But the line between fantasy and reality begins to blur, and by the time they get to Brian's seedy apartment in L.A., nobody's sure where the movie-in-a-movie ends and the real terror begins in this homage to horror, Hollywood, and the power of YouTube.
Hungarian actor András Pál (Login) will play a supporting role in the film, which stars Zach Tinker (Law & Order True Crime) as Jonathan and James Nitti (Dragons of Camelot) as Brian. Casting continues for additional supporting roles. Erik Lundmark (Devil's Cove, Where Cars Don't Dare) will lense and compose the score. Pamela M. Staton (Better Criminal, Freedom H.U.D.) is also a producer on the project and serves as casting director.
Leomark Studios is a U.S. production company, distributor and international sales agent with a catalog of more than 200 titles in distribution worldwide. It is the parent company of Team Euphoria LLC. To learn more, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
