HeroesMilo Ventimiglia, Fairly Legal star Sarah Shahi and Sara Paxton (The Last House on the Left) are toplining Static, a 3D supernatural thriller from New Artists Alliance and Caliber Media.

Ventimiglia and Shahi will play a young couple on the verge of divorce and dealing with the loss of their child. Their life is complicated even further by the arrival of a young visitor (Paxton) with supernatural implications.

NAA, founded by Gabriel Cowan and John Suits, specializes in micro-budgeted and small-budgeted films. Their first effort, Breathing Room, was made for under $20,000 and sold to Anchor Bay and 40 international territories. For their horror pic Growth they used Skype to direct actors for a sequence shot in Korea.

Cowan and Suits are using their low-budget expertise to allow for 3D filmmaking and will use a specialized rig they helped design to hold two Sony PMW-F3 cameras.

NAA’s Cowan and Suits arranged the financing for Static and will produce the movie alongside Andrew Orci and Kerry Johnson. (Levin, Cowan, Suits, and Orci also co-wrote the script.)

Caliber’s Dallas Sonnier, Jack Heller and Jared Schwartz are exec producing. Ventimiglia and his DiVide Pictures producing partner Russ Cundiff are also exec producing.
