DREAD CENTRAL: Casting News and an Update on The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story.
With production set to kick off in a few days, an update has arrived for The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story, the sequel to The Night Visitor, Jennifer Blanc-Biehn’s directorial debut, which has been hitting the film fest circuit with a vengeance.
Internationally acclaimed psychic and paranormal investigator Chip Coffey (“Psychic Kids,” “Paranormal State”) has joined the cast of sci-fi thriller The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story, featuring Caitlin Carmichael (“True Blood,” “Bag of Bones”), Mark Gantt (The Night Visitor, The Bannen Way), and Jennifer Blanc-Biehn (Wrong Cops, Everly, The Victim).
The film is directed by Brianne Davis (pictured; The Night Visitor, “True Blood,” Prom Night) and produced by Blanc/Biehn Productions and Lony Ruhmann in association with Give & Take Productions.
The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story is a sci-fi thriller that runs parallel to the original The Night Visitor, telling the story of Heather (Carmichael), a special young girl who must protect her family and the planet from the same other-earthly being. The sequel delves deeper into the mysteries that plagued the Stevens family and their son, Ricky, with the help of psychic and medium Daniel (Coffey).
“After producing and directing the first film, Lony Ruhmann and I began discussing ideas about the sequel to The Night Visitor, and we could not be happier about the talent involved with the film,” said Jennifer Blanc-Biehn. “It’s exciting to have Chip Coffey join the cast. His expertise will add authenticity to the feature.”
The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story was written by Kevin and Bradley Marcus and Mark Gantt. Executive producers include Lony Ruhmann, Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Michael Biehn, and Brianne Davis. The film is produced by Mark Gantt and Dylan Matlock.
Chip Coffey is an acclaimed medium, paranormal investigator, and speaker. He hosted “Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal,” a one-hour documentary pilot followed by three seasons of the groundbreaking series that aired on both A&E and Biography. Coffey was also featured on thirty-one episodes of the popular A&E series “Paranormal State.”
Filming for The Night Visitor 2: Heather’s Story begins February 15th in Los Angeles so expect lots more soon.
