With his last feature film directorial effort Dysfunctional Friends on its way to home video after a theatrical run, writer/director Corey Grant is already on to the next one...

This time, a found-footage thriller titled The Lost Coast Tapes.

What's it about? Per Variety...

Story's set in 2011 with found footage of a group of investigative journalists who disappear after traveling to a site in Northern California to verify the discovery of a dead Sasquatch.

The film will star Drew Rausch (Battleship), Rich McDonald (Generation Kill), Noah Weisberg, Frank Ashmore and Ashley Wood.

It's listed as being in post-production, with sales company Continental Media selling the film to multiple international territories, and will screen the film for stateside buyers next month. 

Not much media on it yet, but check out the 2 teaser posters I found online:

    Roll sound, Camera, ACTION! This thread has the makings of a great movie. I am reminded of the film Get Shorty starring John Travolta. it's a hilarious fast-paced romp through the international movie industry with all of its odd writers, bizarre crew members, equally bizarre clients and actors of questionable talent. It's all here... Corey Grant, the alledged shady director with skeletons in his closet. Richard Rapper, Corey's agent is there. He's running interference with the speed and believability of O.J. Simpson. Then there's the victims, Brandon Wilson and his lovely wife Linda. There can't be an intriguing story without a hint of love, extortion, blackmail and infidelity. Speaking of love, in walks Miss Nadine. She exudes love, compassion and understanding. She's the voice of reason who has admittedly gone places where others only dream of. She tries to pull Brandon's coat on the evils that lurk ahead, but Brandon (with his wife's encouragement) says "Bump that Nadine, this is not my first rodeo and I need people to know that Corey is a baby face wolf in sheeps clothing (and hair extensions)". Off in the dark wings there's Natasha Fatale & Boris Badenov, aka Mark & Darla. She met Boris Badenov, when they were both arrested for throwing rocks at Girl Scouts hawking Girl Scout Cookies. Immediately smitten with her charms, she and Boris have been partners in crime ever since. However, we don't know their place nor purpose in this film until we hear Natasha (Darla)whispering... "Raskolnikov! Ruthless people, Pottsylvanian ain't got nuthiiiiing on S & A". Boris (Mark) says, "Sharrup you mouth!" However, in the final scene (can't give it away) when Mark and Darla are stuck in their own "mine field", he says to her "Natasha, next time I get fiendish plan, do me big favor? Sharrup my mouth!".

    Ruthless People.

    Sounds like sour grapes Brandon, I have had discussions about projects with Corey and he has been 100% solid in his word. Sounds like you are "green" to the business and if you had a good lawyer you wouldn't have been in that position.

    I hear ya'...

    @Nadine - Thanks for the link and the advice but I ran that equation before I posted. I'm not concerned about any of that. I learned plenty from my mistake with Corey Grant and am not likely to repeat it. I don't really care about conventions of "not going there". In a victim-blaming society like ours I know how much people dislike hearing someone say they were wronged. And I don't care.

    Brandon, I understand your difficulty and I'm glad you anticipated the "you're a hater" responses, because you're going to get more if more people respond to your post. I'm pretty seasoned and have worked with many a-holes who have been featured on S&A but, you know, you kind of can't go there, you know what I mean? I wonder if, even true, your words could become a real liability for you financially and in terms of your reputation. Be careful. What little I can do to help is this, Harvard Law has clinics for artists and production companies. Be sure to cover yourself with General liability Insurance, Auto, etc... as well which is really inexpensive, like 20-60 a month depends. Oh, and here's the link for the Harvard Law Clinic: - We've got to start taking advantage of these resources. I wouldn't get into too many back and forths about your issue on the boards because, really, I think people just won't appreciate the "smearing" and feel your attacks personally because they wouldn't appreciate it being done to them. I'm sorry about what happened with you and your wife, but the lesson, I think, is to cover yourself... sit down and talk through a contract, and seeing as you have a contract, use that jammy in a court of law! (but not on the boards which will just make you mad).

    I predicted I'd get a "You're just a hater" response and here it is. Dick, I don't care about your experiences with Corey. He misunderstood, attempted extortion, and then destroyed my property. If you think that's just "sour grapes" then you apparently have as much a defective moral compass as Mr. Grant.

    I didn't have a lawyer. I made the movie for a mere $9,000. But I had integrity. And nobody out there can say I did anything underhanded to them like Grant did to me. I'm just as proud of that as I am proud of my films.

    Save your Jon Oliver routine for someone you know a little better. When you've done more than talk to Corey, your words might carry more weight.

    Corey Grant held my movie hostage because he misunderstood his contract. When his mistake was pointed out to him he said he didn't care if he'd made a mistake. When he couldn't extort any money from me and my wife he erased the fine cut and I had to edit my film myself. I pray for the people he does business with now that he's grown out of his thuggish ways.
