Double El Productions, Sigil, and Room in the Sky Films in association with Lexicon today announced the start of production on DOE, the sophomore feature-length film for writer-director Justin Foia (Point Defiance) who directs from a screenplay co-written with his brother Timothy Foia (Point Defiance), from a story by Landon Reagan and the Foia brothers.
“DOE is a psychological thriller written in the vein of Memento, Unknown, and Proximity.” Foia says. “When John Hutton (Timothy Davis, “Billions”) mysteriously awakens with no recollection of his past, yet with the ability to speak dozens of languages fluently, he decides to start a new life, marrying Rachel (Tatiana Ali, “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” “Love That Girl!”) and starting a family. Years later, he is sent tumbling down the proverbial rabbit hole after meeting another man that shares a similar condition and learning that there are several more individuals like him, all amnesiacs with extraordinary abilities. With the help of a private detective (Matthew St. Patrick, “Six Feet Under”), John races against time before his past can rise up to destroy himself and his family.”
In addition to Davis, Ali and St. Patrick, DOE stars Mira Sorvino (Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion, “Falling Skies”), Stacey Oristano (“Friday Night Lights”), Aaron Farb (Kill The Messenger, “Powers”), Anne Leighton (“Grimm”), Faithe Herman (“This is Us”), and Steven Swadling (Kickboxer: Vengeance & Retaliation).
Producers on the project are Mark Mathias Sayre (The Timber, Point Defiance and the recently completed Waterlily Jaguar) and Jonathan Piumelli (Waterlily Jaguar) with Larry Nealy (Waterlily Jaguar, Kickboxer: Vengeance & Retaliation, Point Defiance), Christine Kelly, and Steven Swadling (Waterlily Jaguar, Kickboxer: Vengeance & Retaliation, Point Defiance) serving as executive producers.
Production has just commenced and is expected to last several weeks on various locations throughout Los Angeles County.
