XLrator Media (Jimi: All is By My Side, The Machine) and IndustryWorks Studios (American Mary) have announced a three-picture production slate of action-thrillers, which they will co-produce and distribute worldwide.

The two companies recently collaborated on the award-winning horror film and cult classic American Mary and the action-thriller Wrecker which were produced by IndustryWorks and released in the U.S. by XLrator Media. The co-production partnership follow’s XLrator Media’s recently announced slates of action films with RNR Entertainment and sci-fi thrillers with New Artists Alliance.

“After our successful releases of American Mary and Wrecker, we are pleased to join forces once again with the talented production team at IndustryWorks Studios for a new slate of action-thrillers for our high-energy TURBO label. This co-production deal represents another milestone in our strategy of providing efficiently budgeted, elevated content to the global marketplace,” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.

The first film in the three-picture slate is the supernatural thriller RESIDUE, written and directed by Rusty Nixon (Candiland), starring Costas Mandylor (Saw) and Taylor Hickson (Deadpool), which will be released in early 2017. The other films are PLAYTIME, to be directed by Micheal Bafaro (Wrecker), and the futuristic action thriller FUSE.

“We’re excited to continue working with XLrator Media and create content audiences will enjoy,”’ said IndustryWorks VP Marketing Caterina Scrivano.

The deal was negotiated by Caterina Scrivano and John Curtis on behalf of Evan Tylor and IndustryWorks Studios with Barry Gordon and Michel Urich on behalf of XLrator Media.
