Benetone Hillin Entertainment has signed writer Gordon Bressack to the live-action feature Oliver Storm And The Curse Of Sinbad’s Treasure.
The film marks the first family title to be produced by the newly formed global production and production services company, the result of a merger between Hillin Entertainment USA and Thai producer Benetone Films.
Bressack, who has won Emmys for children’s animation, will co-write Oliver Storm with his son James Cullen Bressack. The shoot is set to take place in Thailand.
Benetone Hillin Entertainment partners Daemon Hillin, Rachvin Narula and Kulthep Narula serve as producers and the executive producers are Rajpal Narula and Gordon Bressack.
“We are thrilled to partner with the multi-talented Gordon Bressack on Oliver Storm And The Curse Of Sinbad’s Treasure,” said Hillin, the Benetone Hillin president of production who oversees the domestic arm of the company from Santa Monica.
“Bressack and his work further reflect Benetone Hillin Entertainment ‘s commitment to producing a diverse slate of high quality and marketable independent films.”
Benetone Hillin is in post-production on Pernicious, the horror film that James Cullen Bressack (pictured at right) wrote and directed starring Ciara Hanna, Emily O’Brien and Jackie Moore.
“Our reach and relationships span the world with an emphasis on the United States and Southeast Asia which includes 11 countries that reach from India to China,” said brothers Rachvin and Kulthep Narula of Benetone Films, who will remain on site in Thailand where they say they have produced more than 75 features and 600 television commercials over the last decade.
“We look forward to sharing our areas of expertise to further promote film-making in these affordable and naturally beautifully locations. In turn, we are proud to refer film-makers in Southeast Asia wanting to shoot in the United States to the capable hands of our partner Daemon Hillin.”
