Going to the camera in Puerto Rico is the “Last Story of David Allen.” The Company’s second film to shoot on the beautiful island location, this action movie stars Kellan Lutz, Ron Perlman, and Isabel Lucas. Kellan Lutz plays a hitman facing life and death complications on his final assassination assignment.
The next film called “Steal the Night” is set in the Romanian countryside. In this exciting co-production, the star character battles to save an innocent teen from a gang of human traffickers set on selling her on the slave market in Eastern Europe.
Continuing the Company’s co-production focus on Asia, the third film shooting in November features Zombies attacking the beaches of Thailand. This fun horror homage brings a new twist to the Zombie genre after a secret research scientist’s experiment goes terribly wrong.
Wonderfilm’s CEO Kirk Shaw: “November is an exciting milestone month for all of us at Wonderfilm. Optimizing the Company’s movie packaging strengths, all three films have been pre-sold leaving minimal financial risk for the Company and based on genre and market research, we have targeted these films to enjoy an upside once released next year.

In addition to making three movies in three countries, we are also releasing two Christmas movies in November shot earlier this year.”
