Black Diamond Pictures, LLC an independent film Production Company is announcing the making its first feature film, titled MARKED MAN (www.markedman2012.com). The film is an action-thriller with the current cast of Hoji Fortuna, Jaiden Kaine, Celestine Rae and Gregory Sherad Martin and is directed by Chris Emmons. Principle photography for MARKED MAN will begin early this year; the film doesn't have a release date.
MARKED MAN tells a story about Michael Jones (Martin) who is in search to find his psychopath brother Derek (Kaine) who is killing members of a secret government organization. The organization sends two of Derek's former partners, Roman (Fortuna) and Victoria (Rae) to find Derek in order to protect the organization's secret he has stumbled upon. This film touches some delicate subject matter like government conspiracy, political agendas and corruption, things that are the basis of the recent Occupy movements occurring around the country. The film was written before any of these events transpired but the filmmakers have still seen hesitance from companies to take on this project in reference to these storyline.
MARKED MAN was written by Gregory Sherad Martin who is also producing the film through his imprint, Black Diamond Pictures. Gregory is a former US Marine and his credits include acting, writing and directing. This is the first screenplay that he's written with his other writing credits including articles published in an urban lifestyle magazine and blogging for an online website.
The director Chris Emmons is also a writer, composer and editor from Milwaukee, WI who studied filmmaking at the School of Art Institute of Chicago. His filmography includes independent films such as Beneath the Horizon and Shine Baby Shine in which he directed and edited.
