“The Jurassic Games” Begins Production in Oklahoma

High Octane Pictures, in association with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO), is proud to announce the start of production on the feature film “The Jurassic Games”. The film is utilizing the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program administered by OF+MO, and has started principal photography as of March 17, 2017, with filming scheduled for multiple locations around the state.

Starring Oklahoma native Ryan Merriman (“Final Destination 3”, “The Ring Two”) and Perry Reeves (“Entourage”, “Old School”) with an entirely Oklahoma based crew, “The Jurassic Games” marks the third feature film from Oklahoma’s own Director Ryan Bellgardt.

A unique mixture of “The Hunger Games” and “Jurassic World”, this film imagines a world set in the near future wherein ten death row convicts are chosen to compete in The Jurassic Games, the ultimate virtual reality game show that pits its players against dinosaurs and each other. However, there is a catch. If you die in the virtual game, you also die in reality, and for Anthony Tucker (played by Oklahoma resident Adam Hampton), survival is his one chance to be reunited with his children after having been wrongfully imprisoned for the murder of his wife. As the devious Gamemaster continues adding improbable challenges, the characters will find the odds stacked against them as only one victor can emerge as winner and reclaim their freedom.

“Our office looks forward to working with Ryan Bellgardt and his team on their most ambitious project to date,” said OF+MO Director Tava Maloy Sofsky. “We appreciate Ryan’s loyalty and commitment to producing films in Oklahoma, and we are thrilled the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program has afforded him the opportunity to do so as his productions continue to provide job and educational opportunities for our local talent, crew and students.”
