Wolf Creek director Greg McLean has backed upcoming genre film Territorial as executive producer.
His company, Wolf Creek Pictures, will now produce the horror-thriller-western with Odin’s Eye Productions, the production arm of sales agent Odin's Eye Entertainment.
Territorial was penned by director Matthew Holmes and Alex James and has previously received development support from Film Victoria.
In a statement announcing his involvement, Mclean said: "I and Wolf Creek Pictures (currently in production on Wolf Creek 2) are thrilled to be working with director Matthew Holmes to bring his exciting, genre-splicing horror film Territorial to the big screen. Similar to Red Hill and Crawlspace, Territorial is highly original cinema that will give full reign to Matthew's creative skills as a prodigiously talented filmmaker and storyteller."
Holmes first feature was Twin Rivers, released in 2007, and he has also directed short indie feature comedy The Biscuit Effect (2005) and spin-off web series Crooked (2009). McLean, who is currently directing Wolf Creek 2 in the South Australian outback, also executive produced both Red Hill and Crawlspace.
Odin’s Eye Entertainment is currently shopping the script at EFM/Berlinale ahead of a planned September 2013 shoot date.
