Tony Todd

The Candyman himself, Tony Todd has signed onto ‘#Jennifer’, the third installment of the found footage ‘Jennifer’ franchise.   The film centers on a struggling actress named Jennifer (Danielle Taddei), who gets dropped by her manager because her social media following is not large enough. After losing her grip on reality, Jennifer dedicates herself to a strange plot for revenge in an attempt to gain Internet fame.

THR reports exclusively that Tony Todd will play Jennifer’s eccentric manager, whose actions push the actress to take desperate measures to become famous. “Are you ready for your close up?”

#FromJennifer is described as a spiritual sequel to To Jennifer (2013) and 2 Jennifer (2016) and features a stand-alone story and characters connected to the previous installments — through themes such as obsession and surveillance. The first two films were shot entirely on the iPhone, while the latest film — which has wrapped principal photography— was shot using multiple GoPro cameras.

#FromJennifer is from writer-director Frank Merle and also stars Derek Mears, Aaron Abrams, Meghan Deanna Smith and Trae Ireland.

Merle and Hunter Johnson are producing, with James Cullen Bressack and Warren Croyle serving as executive producers. Sector 5 Films is handling distribution and also release the previous two installments on VOD.
