Actor Beau Fowler is still in the mix these days, just completed his newest short film proof of concept, Red (working title, subject to change) last weekend from Ki Films. The actor took to social media last week on Thursday to tease fans with a mystery image, revealing himself opposite actress Jennifer Lim (A Monster Calls) in an intense scene.
Fowler wrote the proof late last year and began a collaborative development soon with filmmaker David Newton (Wrath Of God, The Last), constructing a short story to serve as preamble to a hopeful feature-length endeavor later down the line. Plot details are underwraps though, but I am told the project is described as “an emotionally driven action thriller set in the world of organ harvesting”.
Red rejoins Fowler with Newton, himself an industry stunt performer, independent filmmaker who made the festival rounds in 2018 with his feature debut, Amber – later titled The Take Down for its North American release.
Fowler first landed on Film Combat Syndicate’s radar with a seperate proof of concept in director Brandon Kahn’s Enter The Streets Of Myth back in 2013 opposite Zara Phythian. Next to The Take Down, his credits also include Avengement, and Ross Boyask’s I Am Vengeance and the Bryan Larkin-led assassin threequel short, Dead End: Dead Man Walking, and is also in development with several other projects on his watch at Ki Films with crime thriller 3 Days Of Dark and action comedy, Express Delivery.
Newton broke ground in 2016 co-starring in actor/director Marcus Shakesheff’s dynamic breakout Welsh martial arts action indie, Kamikaze. Newton’s extensive resume in stunt performance will soon see him credited in theaters this November for Daniel Craig’s final bow as James Bond in No Time To Die.
Exec producers on Red are Peak’s End Pictures, Century Park Entertainment and Archangel Financial Services.
