Three-time BloodList writers Joe Russo & Chris LaMont’s Netflix horror movie, THE LAST WILL & TESTAMENT OF CHARLES ABERNATHY, directed by Alejandro Brugues (POOKA LIVES), is currently in post-production. They recently re-wrote THE LOCKSMITH, a thriller starring Ryan Phillippe, Kate Bosworth and Ving Rhames, shooting in November 2021.
In 2020, the writing duo penned the thriller THE AU PAIR NIGHTMARE, which Russo directed. The movie debuted to strong reviews and ratings, with USA Today saying it “pushes all the right buttons." They wrote the Bruce Willis actioner HARD KILL, which was the #2 movie on Netflix over Thanksgiving.
Russo also directed the short film BE MINE for Crypt TV. His short MIDNIGHT CLEAR (featured on Entertainment Weekly, Nerdist and io9) was released on Gunpowder & Sky’s digital platform, Alter.
As a producer, Russo is currently in production on the Skydance/Apple movie THE GREATEST BEER RUN EVER, starring Zac Efron and Russell Crowe and directed by Peter Farrelly (GREEN BOOK). He has THE UNTITLED HULK HOGAN BIOPIC set at Netflix with Chris Hemsworth starring and Todd Phillips (JOKER) directing. Russo produced the horror anthology NIGHTMARE CINEMA, which was the #2 movie on Shudder in 2019.
