Film producer Casey La Scala, who has been involved in the production of such diverse films as A Walk to Remember, Grind and Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie, took a marked change of direction as not only the producer, but co-writer and director of the biblically-based horror film, The Remaining.
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has tabbed Jan. 27 as the street date for both DVD and Blu-ray editions of the film … the ARR works out to 144 days and ticket sales from the film’s limited theatrical run (under 100 screens) currently stands at $1.2 million.
It’s a blissful day for Skylar (Alexa PenaVega — From Prada to Nada, Walkout) and Dan (Bryan Dechart) as they are getting married. Family and friends are gathered, they are pronounced man and wife and then without warning The Rapture begins. Those that are left behind, which includes the newly married couple, are faced with the horrors of this biblical prophecy.
The Remaining plays like a supernatural horror film, complete with creatures (demons), end-of-the-world weather events (hail the size of bowling balls) and survivors huddled together trying to make sense of what is happening on a global scale.
Bonus features include the featurette titled “Divine Revelations: Making The Remaining” and a deleted scene.
