Thriller Films, LLC, in association with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO), is pleased to announce the start of production on the feature film “Last Exorcist” in Tulsa and the surrounding region. The film is utilizing the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program administered by OF+MO, and will commence principal photography on October 25, 2017.
“We’re thrilled to welcome back Thriller Films to the Tulsa region. We’ve been able to work with producers and connect them with our unique locations, talented crew, college film programs, and our film-friendly process with our office and the City of Tulsa. Tulsa’s hospitality shines when we are able to collaborate and share all that we have to offer,” Abby Kurin, Director of the Tulsa Office of Film, Music, Arts & Culture, the only city film commission in Oklahoma.
“Last Exorcist” tells the story of Joan Campbell, who must battle a demon from her past that currently possesses her mother. The film marks the second Oklahoma-based project for Producers Zeus Zamani and Justin Jones who return to Tulsa after producing the film “The Recovery”, which also utilized the state’s film incentive program in the fall of 2016.
“After having a very streamlined and enjoyable experience filming in Oklahoma last year, we are extremely excited to be coming back to the state where we have established a great, and hopefully long lasting relationship with the local film crew, vendors, film office, and the general population,” said Zamani. “We look forward to further exploring the many location gems that exist throughout the state”.
“The Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program has afforded producers like Mr. Zamani the opportunity to bring multiple projects to Oklahoma creating a win-win opportunity for both the producers making their films as well as our film industry members who are provided sustained work and our local communities who are positively impacted by film production,” said OF+MO Director Tava Maloy Sofsky. “We’re incredibly grateful to our partners at the City of Tulsa and in the surrounding region for their hospitality and support.”
