LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, July 28, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Paranormal occurrences are on the rise in Flint, Michigan this summer. On August 7, 2022, writer/director Bron Theron’s latest film, Half Dead Fred, will debut at the famed Capitol Theater. The new film, shot in Flint, will feature Corin Nemec and Jordan C, Michael as they work to solve a mysterious supernatural murder case. Rising actress Heidi Schooler, known for her on-screen and voice-over work, plays Roberta Dalton’s leading supporting role. Jason London, a star in his own right, stars as Matthew, Roberta’s husband.

Schooler reflects on the project, saying, “I had the honor of being part of the fabulous paranormal thriller, Half Dead Fred, which we shot in Flint last October. Bron is an incredibly talented writer and director, and the entire cast and crew were great to work with.

Heidi Schooler has worked steadily in Hollywood for years. Viewers may remember her in recent roles such as Scarlett Watkins in the Roku TV series, Cypher, or the title role in the new comedy series, Read to Me, Heidi, in which Heidi and her famous puppet , Millicent, tell stories with the help of Heidi’s many voice-over characters.

Together with director John Beaton Hill, Schooler stars in and is the creator/producer of the comedy film Millicent & Me and the Apple Tree, which made its mark on the independent film festival circuits. She has just won her recent victory for “Best comedy short film” at the Côte d’Azur Film Festival. Prior to that Schooler was nominated for over ten others including Toronto Independent Film Festival of Cift, London Indie Short Festival, San Francisco Arthouse Short Festival, Niagara Falls International Short Festival, Kapow Intergalactic Festival (in LA) and the Hong Kong Independent Film Festival. Also entertaining audiences, it was officially selected at the Paris Independent Film Festival and the We Make Movies International Film Festival (in LA).

Bron Theron’s Half Dead Fred is one of Schooler’s most exciting projects to date.

“What was so exciting about Half Dead Fred was that I knew it would be a fabulous movie to work on as soon as I read the script! Bron wrote such a cool supernatural movie that’s also funny, with wry humor, so I know audiences will enjoy it as the story unfolds! I was also super excited to work with this particular cast! They’re all really wonderful actors, so having the chance to work with each of them was a real treat!

The story behind Theron’s inspiration for the film helped Schooler better understand the characters. Theron began working in Flint to help beautify the community with the Flint Public Art Project, where he met FPAP founder and one of the feature film project’s future producers, Joe Schipani, who wrote the book titled “Haunted Flint”. Schipani is also featured in Half Dead Fred as the character “James”. The world premiere is a red carpet event that will see the cast, crew and production crew return to Flint next month to launch the film.

Half Dead Fred will premiere on August 7, 2022 at the Capitol Theater in Flint, MI – You can purchase tickets for the event by clicking here.
