Canadian starlet Amanda Crew is toplining director Robert Cuffley’s Ferocious, a delightfully sleazy-sounding thriller that finds Crew playing a popular American actress out to retrieve a humiliating sex tape of herself shot during her days as a stripper.
The film’s official synopsis reads:
Leigh Parish (Crew) is the star on one of North America’s most popular TV shows. Beautiful, charismatic…her star’s ascension seems to have no ceiling.
On a return trip home and during a standard paint-by-number television interview, one of the phone in callers trips her up, unearthing an all-consuming anxiety within Leigh…one she had hoped was permanently buried.
Maurice is Leigh’s former boss, back when she worked in a sleazy nightclub, long before becoming famous. In his possession is a videotape with Leigh as the star. If distributed, the tape would effectively end Leigh’s career in the entertainment business.
The mere thought of the tape is enough to get Leigh’s blood pressure to rise. Maurice knows this and is intent on extorting Leigh for the rest of her life. But Leigh isn’t paying Maurice another nickel. She’s going to break into the club, retrieve the tape and destroy it. Or so the plan goes…
Or, so the plan goes? Hmm. Maybe she doesn’t get the tape back and instead goes on to land a Ryan Seacrest produced-reality show … terrifying.
Crew made her feature film debut in the 2006 frightener Final Destination 3. She has since gone on to star in Rampart Films’ upcoming sci-fi drama The Repeaters, the 2008 Lionsgate sleeper A Haunting in Connecticut and Summit’s criminally underrated—but hilarious Sex Drive.
Ferocious will shoot in Saskatoon, Canada through mid-December. Kim Coates (”Sons of Anarchy”) Stephen Huszar (30 Days of Night: Dark Days), Michael Eklund (The Divide) and Amy Matysio (Rabbit) costar.
