The Oklahoma Film + Music Office, with producer Mike Leahy of Strike Accord and in association with Puzzle Box Returns, Inc., announced the start of production of the feature film Judgment in Oklahoma City and Guthrie.
The film is using the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program and began principal photography on February 15.
Leahy is returning to Oklahoma, after producing the film Great Plains, which utilized the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program in the fall of 2015. “The rebate program and Oklahoma Film + Music Office were instrumental in bringing Great Plains to shoot in Oklahoma,” said Leahy. “In addition to those two assets, the capable crew and Oklahoma connections made the decision to return with Judgment an easy one.”
Judgment features “a police officer’s pursuit of a serial killer who undergoes a final accounting of his soul by creatures of the underworld.” The film marks the return to directing of Gary Tunnicliffe, a veteran of the makeup effects industry for the last 23 years, having designed and created makeup effects on over 60 feature films, and his credits include Hellraiser, Halloween, Candyman, Mimic, Prophecy, Pulse, Children of the Corn, Exorcist, Wishmaster, Dracula, Scream and Blade.
