After Dark to Co-Produce Butterfly Effect 3

A serial killer stalks the latest installment

BenderSpink and FilmEngine announced today that they will produce the third installment of the cult classic The Butterfly Effect with After Dark Films.

The genre banner know for its yearly 8 Films to Die For, headed up by Courtney Solomon, is planning to distribute the second sequel in the franchise through the After Dark Horrorfest. The film marks the third original film created for Horrorfest that After Dark is producing and distributing theatrically. It also signals the theatrical return of the Butterfly series – the second installment was geared direct-to-DVD in 2006.

Principal photography begins this September in Vancouver based on a screenplay by Holly Brix (MTV Films/Paramount’s The Lost Girls). Casting is currently underway.

In The Butterfly Effect 3, a young man discovers he has inherited the powers of “The Butterfly Effect” and attempts to solve the mystery of his high school girlfriend’s death using his newfound ability, only to unwittingly unleash a vicious serial killer.

Courtney Solomon will executive produce along with company’s Laura Ivey and Stephanie Caleb.

“We’re taking the Butterfly Effect to a whole new level of insanity,” says BenderSpink’s Chris Bender. “Holly’s script is a tremendous ride and her take on time-travel is one that’s truly original. This film will blow audiences away. We’re thrilled to bring this franchise back to the big screen through After Dark Films and Horrorfest.”
