Professor Wallace at 'Helliversity' lectern
EmptyThe writer-director behind "Halloween III" and "Fright Night Part 2" is taking horror film fans back to school.
Tommy Lee Wallace will helm "Helliversity," the first film in FarCor Studios and Indusa Global's new joint venture to produce low-budget indie features. FarCor co-president Dwayne Corbitt and Indusa president James Ram will lead the endeavor.
In "Helliversity," a group of American exchange students is terrorized by a vengeful spirit while locked inside a high-security foreign university.
A six-week shoot is set for March in Los Angeles and India. Steve Langford, a longtime writer-producer on ABC's "Family Matters," co-scripted with Wallace.
Corbitt and FarCor partner Ralph Farquhar are attached to produce an adaptation of Michael Baisden's best-seller "The Maintenance Man" for Screen Gems and have backed several series, but this is one of Indusa's first pacts.
James Kellem of JKA Talent & Literary Agency, which reps Wallace, Langford and both companies, brokered the deals. (partialdiff)
