Cast and Crew Talk Thomas Dekker’s Jack Goes Home
Production has commenced on writer/director Thomas Dekker’s Jack Goes Home in Kingston, New York; and Dread Central was recently on the scene. The film is produced by Dekker, Jordan Yale Levine/Yale Productions, and Scott Levenson. Co-producers are Nikki Reed and Jon Keeyes, and executive producers include Shaun S. Sanghani/SSS Entertainment, Jason Rose, and Jessica Chang.
Following is our report from the set along with a look at a few stills and the film’s preliminary artwork that was put together for film fest submissions.
This is Jack Goes Home. This is a gathering of talent to help shape a word of torment and trigger catharsis for its director, Thomas Dekker. What I saw was Jack (Rory Culkin) dressed in white shirt, dancing with his mother, Teresa (Lin Shaye), to a song from a foregone era. Teresa slips from his arms, as if drugged. and falls to the floor of the old house where the production is shooting.
DIRECTOR: Thomas Dekker
CAST: Rory Culkin, Lin Shaye, Britt Robertson, Nikki Reed, Daveigh Chase
‘Jack Goes Home’ Film Directed By THOMAS DEKKER
Outside a sunburst-colored home in Kingston, there is a production team moving cars, setting up chairs and getting ready for the next shot. A production assistant yells, “Rolling! Quiet all around!” and everyone is immediately silent. Inside, lead actor Rory Culkin, who is known for such flicks as “Scream 4,” begins filming one of the most intense scenes of the entire movie.
The film is called “Jack Goes Home,” starring Culkin, directed by Thomas Dekker and produced by Yale Productions. For 18 days in August, the cast and crew filmed in Kingston.
“It’s the third movie that I’ve been a part of in the Hudson Valley,” said co-producer Jordan Yale Levine, who signed onto the project with co-producer Scott Levenson. “The other two movies were shot in Orange County. Our location scout found this home in Kingston and Mayor Shayne Gallo has been completely accommodating and super helpful to us.”
