Michael Corrigan, a former CFO at MGM, has joined Afterburner Films as vice chairman.
Afterburner, which CEO David Riggs founded last year, has embarked on a four-picture slate, kicking off with the action thriller “Fast Glass,” the indie company’s second film.
“Glass,” a tale of California surfers who get caught up in airborne drug smuggling, stars Andrew Keegan, Brandon Quinn, Nick Carter, Greg Grunberg and Natalia Cigliuti. Writer-director Kim Bass (“Ballistic”) is helming the project.
Other titles on Afterburner’s slate, which it will be offering at the Cannes Film Market, are horror thriller “Scareport,” treasure-hunt movie “50 Large” and love story “Through the Cracks.”
Afterburner’s first feature, “Succubus: Hell-bent,” written and directed by Bass and starring Lorenzo Lamas, David Keith, Gary Busey and Kelly Hu, was released domestically by Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
Before MGM, Corrigan was a senior partner in the Entertainment, Media and Communications practice at PriceWaterhouse.
