The table read will be directed by Jerren Lauder.
Jerren went to film school in Fullerton, CA, thinking he would be the next Terrence Malick. After making a 30-minute film entirely of wheat blowing in the wind, he said "NOPE" and started working on genre films instead, where his talents are better suited.
He recently directed his first feature film, Stay Out of the F*cking Attic, for Top Dead Center Films. He has directed comedy, genre and animation content for Fox Digital, Machinima, and Super Deluxe. He and his writing partner Jesse recently optioned their horror/revenge script, Borderline to Patriot Pictures and are currently being spotlighted on the ISA Top 25 Writers to Watch 2020 list.
Jerren’s a pretty good guy, ask anybody. Except his uncle Rick. That guy’s a liar.
