“For the first time, I will be playing the role of a young mother—and fighting a battle of good versus evil. It’s opportunity to explore a character unlike others I’ve played and I can’t wait to begin production.”
Apache Junction was chosen as the location by the writer/director who goes by the name of Roze.
“Our director, Roze, had scouted around Arizona and found that Apache Junction fit our script beautifully,” said producer Kelly Sallaway in an interview with the Apache Junction/Gold Canyon News.
Sallaway said the “lighting is great” in Apache Junction and they’re thrilled to be filming in the city, especially with the sunrise and sunset over Superstition Mountain.
The crew, which includes 10 student interns, has rented six locations in Apache Junction and shooting will begin on Oct. 12. To follow the progress of the movie, visit www.facebook.com/speaknoevilthemovie.
The film, which has received funding, opens with a single mom’s search for her missing child. Judged by the small town folk and authorities, she receives little help until it is discovered that all the children in the town have disappeared. When the kids do return, they are changed, diseased and violent. Once the story’s demons are revealed, the town becomes a battleground to save or destroy the children. Stone must uncover and use all her love and strength to fight through the evil to save her daughter.
