New York, NY â€“â€“ C Plus Pictures, a production company that specializes in creating character driven, multi-themed independent features, recently wrapped shooting on their new vampire comedy ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE UNDEAD.
ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE UNDEAD was filmed entirely in New York City and has an all-star cast including: Jake Hoffman (Arrested Development), Devon Aoki (Sin City), John Ventimiglia (The Soprano’s), Kris Lemche (Final Destination 3), Ralph Macchio (Karate Kid), Jeremy Sisto (Six Feet Under), Joey Kern (Lucky You) and Waris Ahuwalia (The Darjeeling Limited). Sean Lennon is scoring the film.
This independent feature film is the debut of Director Jordan Galland, who also penned the original screenplay.
ROSENCRANTZ centers around Julian Marsh (Hoffman), an out of work lothario, who scores a break as the director of an off-Broadway play. The play is a bizarre adaptation of Hamlet written by a pale Romanian (Ventimiglia) who is actually a master vampire. A perfect combination of low-brow humor and high-brow aesthetics, this comedy/horror film follows an eccentric cast of characters to explain the connection between Hamlet, the Holy Grail, and some very sexy vampires.
The film was shot using a Red Camera, the revolutionary new camera known for its jaw-dropping imagery. The Red Camera is capable of recording resolutions up to 4520 x 2540 using a Super 35-sized CMOS sensor, and will level the playing field for independent filmmakers.
