Residents of the town of Wallingford, Connecticut, are once again finding that their otherwise average New England town is the backdrop for a feature film. Earlier this month, The Midnight Game, starring Renee Olstead, Deborah Twiss, and Shelby Young, kicked off shooting. Little is known about the film at this time, though it is known to be a horror/thriller theme. Director A.D. Calvo, though originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, is no stranger to using Wallingford as the setting for his films. His first feature, The Other Side of the Tracks, was shot almost entirely in Wallingford, and even featured the town mayor in a cameo role. That film was released in 2008. In December 2009, Calvo filmed his sophomore feature, The Melancholy Fantastic, also in Wallingford. Calvo does currently reside in Wallingford, and also had a hand in writing the film.
The Midnight GameI‘s stars are no strangers to Hollywood East themselves. Olstead once appeared on the TV show “Providence,” which was filmed partially in Rhode Island. Twiss has appeared on the TV show “Fringe,” which is set in Boston, Massachusetts. And Young appeared in the movie, The Social Network, which was partially filmed in Boston.
The Midnight Game is set to be released sometime in 2013.
