VISTA, California - Edward Furlong has signed on to star in Green Valley Entertainment’s (GVE) vampire film Kiss of the Sun. "Kiss" is based on the short story "Virtual Day" from Antczak's critically acclaimed collection, Daydreams Undertaken. Set in Miami Beach, a young female vampire searching for her true identity in virtual reality tempts fate when she falls for vampire hunter intent on destroying her master.
"Kiss" is currently casting for a May shoot in Miami and Bucharest, Romania. Furlong, whose credits include Terminator 2 and American History X, has just completed The Crow: Wicked Prayer and The Visitation, which are now in post production.
“We are thrilled to have Eddie on board. We had him in mind when we wrote the script,” explained Micheal Valverde, writer-producer and founder of GVE. "Furlong is repped by manager Mark Rousso at New Wave Entertainment, agent Steve Muller of Innovative Artists, and attorney Bill Skrzyniarz at Skrzyniarz & Associates."
Green Valley has also attached acclaimed short film and commercial director, Jon Hill to direct the South Beach set vampire thriller Kiss Of The Sun.
Hill, who made a splash by winning the National 48-Hour Film Festival competition with his short, White Bitch Down, which is being picked up by the Independent Film Channel, makes his feature debut with “Kiss”. Also an award-winning commercial director, his previous collaboration with GVE was as the cinematographer on the award winning short film No Witness.
"Having worked side by side with Jon on a few projects now, I am convinced he is a true visionary," Valverde extoled.
"Everyone's been watching and waiting to see who will give Hill his first crack at directing a feature and we knew it had to be us," said GVE writer-producer, Steve Antczak. "He brings unbelievable energy to the project."
Green Valley Entertainment has produced four films: “Losing Grace (Lesley Ann Warren, Ronny Cox),” “No Witness” (Corey Feldman, Jeff Fahey), “Sex & Consequences” (Joan Severance, Corbin Bernsen), and “Fatwa” (Lauren Holly).
