‘Raid 2’ Star Arifin Putra Wraps Sean Cronin’s Vampire Road Movie ‘Bogieville’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Indonesian film star Arifin Putra (“The Raid 2”) and emerging actor Eloise Lovell Anderson (“Villain”) have wrapped principal photography on Sean Cronin’s vampire road movie “Bogieville.”

Written by Henry P. Gravelle (“The Over Easy Courthouse Cafe”), the film follows a couple on the run who come across a derelict trailer park, Bogieville. Convinced to stay by the sinister caretaker, they soon learn that he is a guardian to the residents of Bogieville, a pack of vampires.

The cast also includes Cronin himself as the lead vampire, Sarina Taylor (“Solitary”), Poppie Jae Hughes (“Our Kid”), Daniel P. Lewis (“Wuthering Heights”), Andrew Lee Pots (“The Crown”) and Katie Sheridan (“The Royal Nanny”).

The film is produced by Djonny Chen for Silent D Pictures, along with Cronin for Magnificent Films. Cronin has played villains in some 89 films, besides directing several titles.

Putra said: “I was really drawn to the unique portrayal of vampires and how they coexist with humans in this story. Never a dull moment working with Sean Cronin, and it was fascinating to see him masterfully juggle all his various responsibilities on this production. My favourite experience was being directed by Sean in full vampire make up and costume, quite surreal.”

Anderson added: “The script immediately drew me in, although a vampire theme, it’s primarily a character-driven narrative. Working with Sean, our director, for the first time was a fun experience and his portrayal of the antagonist was nothing short of a consummate embodiment – no spoilers, you’ll have to see for yourself.”

Philippe Ashfield from Instant Entertainment and Motion Pictures Entertainment is handling publicity.
