Yesterday The Hollywood Reporter ran a story about Horsethief Pictures, a new production banner started by former Paypal Exec. Jack Shelby and two filmmakers, Tiller Russell and Duncan Montgomery. The most interesting piece of the news is that this new interactive production, digital distribution and marketing company plans to release 2-3 films a year, and will encourage audiences to participate in every phase of the movie making process from development to production, distribution and marketing.
Their first feature is a little flick called The Last Rites of Ransom Pride. It will star Lizzy Caplan, Peter Dinklage, Dwight Yoakam, Jason Priestly, Scott Speedman and Kris Kristofferson star in the story of a woman trying to bring her murdered outlaw lover home for burial.
