The Butcher Brothers (Mitchell Altieri and Phil Flores) have yet to premiere their latest film, THE VIOLENT KIND, at Sundance this week, but they’ve already secured financing for their next. Cynthia Stafford and her Queen Nefertari Productions will package and finance BLACK SUNSET, which Altieri and Flores have already written and will direct.

BLACK SUNSET revolves around ”seven friends on a surf trip to Mexico that turns into something that these jaunts often tend to in horror films: a gory, betrayal-filled nightmare.” THE VIOLENT KIND has a similar feel, following a group of biker friends whose weekend trip to a cabin turns…well, messy. Stafford attributes her interest in the film her desire to work with “two of the most talked about directors at Sundance.”
Jeremy Platt and Andy Gould will produce BLACK SUNSET, and Stafford and Queen Nefertari executives Lanre Idewu and Jeff Kalligheri will executive produce. The film is scheduled to start production this summer.

If you’re up at Sundance, be sure to check out one of five screenings for THE VIOLENT KIND. You can get tickets HERE.
