New York genre house Glass Eye Pix has teamed with Dogfish Pictures on LIKE ME, “a genre- and mind-bending neo-noir” thriller starring THE TOWN THAT DREADED SUNDOWN’s Addison Timlin, pictured here. Read on for more info.
Directed by feature first-timer Rob Mockler, who also scripted, LIKE ME casts Timlin as Kiya, a discontented loner who goes on a crime spree and shares it on-line via social media—which wins her a disturbing Internet following. Glass Eye topper Larry Fessenden, who served as executive producer with Peter Phok, also co-stars as Marshall, “a paint-huffing motel owner who crosses her path,” and the cast additionally includes Ian Nelson, THE BATTERY director/star Jeremy Gardner and Stuart Rudin. Jenn Wexler, Jessalyn Abbott and James Belfer produced, with James Siewert as cinematographer.
“Rob originally pitched the project to me via a tweet,” Belfer says. “I found that really fitting considering the subject matter and the way Rob is presenting the dark obsessions with social media. He’s really got his head wrapped around this subculture, and I can’t wait for audiences to witness the monster he’s created.”
Mockler says, “It was a truly magical experience working with such a dedicated and collaborative cast and crew. Addison crafted an incredibly nuanced performance and brought Kiya to life with an unnerving realism. She never failed to surprise me.” Adds Fessenden, “There is a real off-kilter genius to the footage. We’re excited to bring it into postproduction to compose something truly special and genre-defying.”
LIKE ME lensed this past December on locations in Brooklyn, Queens and Woodstock, NY. Keep your eyes on this site for more on the movie.
