A Snowstorm Prompts The Dark Tale Of 'The Oak Room'

Crypt Teaze has learned that Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment Inc., the filmmaking team behind such genre hits as I’ll Take Your Dead, Let Her Out, Bite and Antisocial have started production on their newest collaboration, The Oak Room.

In the film set during a raging snowstorm, "a drifter returns home to the blue-collar bar located in the remote Canadian town where he was born. When he offers to settle an old debt with a grizzled bartender by telling him a story, the night’s events quickly spin into a dark tale of mistaken identities, double-crosses and shocking violence. You’re not going to believe what happened at The Oak Room…"

After taking some time off after his last film, director/producer Cody Calahan teamed up with writer Peter Genoway to adapt Genoway’s stage play The Oak Room into a feature length film. The original stage production took home first place honors at the Toronto Fringe Festival in the prestigious New Play Contest category while also being selected as a Patron’s Pick (Theatre Passe Muraille’s top box office earner). The play was also nominated for Best Independent Production by broadway.com.

"This script is unlike anything we’ve ever done before," explains Calahan. "The Oak Room is a northern gothic thriller that revolves around the consistent balancing act between power and weakness."

The Oak Room stars RJ Mitte ("Breaking Bad"), Peter Outerbridge (Suicide Squad, "V-Wars") and Ari Millen ("Orphan Black", I’ll Take Your Dead), with Martin Roach (The Shape of Water, Diary of the Dead), David Ferry (The Boondock Saints, "Hell on Wheels"), Nicholas Campbell ("Black Mirror", Antiviral) and Amos Crawley (The Virgin Suicides, "Private Eyes").

Principal photography is set to commence in Burlington, Ontario this month.
