The filming of Adam Sherman’s fantasy movie ‘The Green Fairy’ starts in Savannah, Georgia, this month. The film revolves around a coven of vampires, who struggle to come to terms with the modern world and their own mortality as they are locked in a battle with a deadly foe in this twisted fairytale.
Sherman also penned the film. The filmmaker’s last release was the comedy thriller ‘This Game’s Called Murder,’ starring Ron Perlman, Natasha Henstridge, and Vanessa Marano. His recent credits include Tao Okamoto and Haruka Abe-starrer crime drama ‘She’s Just a Shadow.’ After making his directorial debut with ‘Dead Doll,’ Sherman went on to direct ‘Happiness Runs’ and Lukas Haas-starrer ‘Crazy Eyes’ as well.
The cast of the movie is yet to be announced. Since the production received interim agreements from SAG-AFTRA to proceed with casting and shooting of the project, the ongoing actors’ strike does not affect the same.
George Lee and Marcus Englefield produce the fantasy drama for Storyoscopic Films, one of the production companies behind Netflix’s animated movies ‘Animal Crackers’ and ‘Trouble’ and Sarah Grey-starrer ‘The Accursed.’ Furthermore, Lee and Englefield’s credits include ‘Men in Black 3,’ ‘Battle of the Year,’ and ‘Priest.’ Sherman is also part of the production through his company Adam Sherman Film (‘Wristcutters: A Love Story’ and ‘Mafia Girl’).
Sherman is seemingly shooting in Savannah as a feature film director for the first time. The coastal city is a significant filming location of several of this year’s major releases, including Emily Blunt and Chris Evans-starrer ‘Pain Hustlers,’ Todd Haynes’ ‘May December,’ and ‘The Exorcist: Believer.’ Popular movies such as ‘The Menu,’ Will Smith-starrer ‘Gemini Man,’ and Matt Damon and Christian Bale’s ‘Ford v Ferrari’ were also filmed in the region. The production is scheduled to conclude on December 5.
