Well - we have a new title! Alice D is now: "The Haunting of Alice D" which was picked up and renamed by RLJ Entertainment, formerly Image Entertainment, and will be coming out on May 3, 2016 on DVD and VOD! RLJ is an excellent distribution company and I really couldn't be more excited to have my movie released by them. They also created a new poster from all of the photos we sent them, and I managed to get my mug on the cover. It's such an honor. Mark your calendars... May 3, 2016... "The Haunting of Alice D" is coming to you!

I'm so excited to share with you, Alice D is opening this years 14th annual Shriekfest... in Hollywood! Shriekfest is such a fantastic festival, and we have the honor of being the first movie up:
October 3rd at 7pm at Raleigh Studios.
I couldn't be more proud! For Tickets and more info: Click here!
It's been an insane month... we are working hard to get Alice ready for festivals, the score and finishing touches on the edit are all coming together wonderfully... and the word from director Arthur Luhn is that The House Across the Street is a few days/weeks away from being complete as well!!!!
In the meantime I shot a co-star role for the new HBO show, Hello Ladies. It's Stephen Merchant's new show which he created and stars in, and it's hysterical. Check out the trailer HERE.
I was so honored to have a small role as a casting assistant in scenes with Christine Woods, Jenny Slate and Miriam Tolan; directed by Greg Daniels; produced by Dan Kaplow, ex produced by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. I'm a lucky girl and so grateful.
Look for me in Episode 7! In the meantime, you can laugh at me being a silly actress in my trailer what should I do while in hair and make up and waiting....??? Duck face, of course.
I've been couped up in this production trailer (ha ha) for way too long, going a little stir crazy. Literally it's been Alice prep all day everyday, good thing Kristina Page and I have unlimited plans...
Draft 7.0 of Alice D is done and already needing to be revised. (no one in Rhode Island has a hot tub in January...so that scene is out) It's getting so good, I'm really really excited!
:) Oh, and as I mentioned... we are going to be shooting in Rhode Island. The place we are renting is going to be its' own character in the movie, it's that special, all 9000 sq ft. of it.
Alice casting is almost done and we will update the Alice D website with our cast as soon as we finish up (some offers are out/ approved/ pending and a couple are going out next week). We decided to forgo callbacks, and cast the movie on our instincts from the first round of auditions. It's unbelievable that so many talented people are out there... and I wish I had room in the movie for more of the actors we saw. That being said, I am VERY happy with our choices so far. And- I can tell you my favorite wrestler in the world is coming out for a nice cameo. If you know me, you know who he is. (he's a fantastic actor, too) And we will have some other familiar faces in there as well, not just from my world... but from yours too.
On my Alice downtime I am studying for my next role in the web series: Red Sleep (formerly I Kill). I start work on Monday and have a couple more days after Thanksgiving. I get to play a femme nikita type, or at least that's how I'm interpreting her. :)
I have gotten word that several of my projects from last year have a rough cut assembled: American Girls, Rabid Love and The House Across the Street. I can't wait to see them all finished up and share them with you.
Money Shot is also coming out on December 11th - but I will do a seperate update closer to the date with all the info on its' release. :) The new poster is fantastic and our Distro company will be unveiling it shorty!!!!
okay... that is all for now. I will eat, sleep and prosper when the movie is done. Happy weekend to you!
