Production has started on the psychological thriller Escapee from Hollywood Media Bridge and Tall Tales Entertainment in association with Voltage Pictures and Nantucket Productions.

Voltage will handle international sales on the film. Dominic Purcell from Prison Break and the upcoming The Killer Elite stars as a psychotic criminal who escapes from a secure hospital and embarks on a murderous spree in search of a specific female target, played by Christine Evangelista.

Campion Murphy wrote and is directing and Escapee producers are Phillip B Goldfine, Faith Ford, Scott Anderson, Bryan Sexton and Benjamin F Sacks.

The story is based on events that took place in Ford’s hometown of Alexandria, Louisiana, and also stars Melissa Ordway, Carly Chaikin and Scott Michael Elrod.

“I’m so thrilled to be working on such an exciting and unique film, especially when the location is hometown to myself and much of the crew,” Ford said.
