LOS ANGELES — Adam & Eve Pictures on Thursday announced it has tapped Will Ryder to write and direct an original sci-fi sex thriller.
Casting is underway for Oh My God No! with Kira Noir and newcomer Dakota Tyler cast as the ‘conflicting’ female leads. Nathan Bronson will play a desperate man caught in an impossible situation he cannot escape.
The production green-light comes on the heels of Love, Sex & Fashion, a Ryder feature movie comedy which was just released two weeks ago.
“Comedy is what Will does best,” said Rachel V, head of production for Adam & Eve Pictures. “However, he’s not limited to one specific genre because we also enjoyed a lot of success with the movie The Cursed XXX which was Scott David and Will Ryder’s first attempt in the thriller genre so when they talked to us about this new movie synopsis, we absolutely loved it.”
The studio indicated Oh My God No! will tell "the harrowing story of young newlyweds that find themselves in unimaginable trouble."
“That’s all we will say for now about the story because this script is going to scare a lot of people,” Ryder remarked. “I will however, be happy to talk about my female leads because they are the fuel that will ignite this story.”
Veteran superstar Kira Noir has never worked with Ryder before but the movie’s co-producer Scott David was quick to point out, “Will was adamant that we get Kira in this feature movie so we’re pretty excited to have her join the cast of this thriller.”
“Kira is a fabulous talent and a very believable actor,” Ryder said. “I’ve wanted to work with her for a few years now and I know she’ll be up for the acting challenge this story presents. This is the type of role that actors relish and when Kira reads the script, she’s gonna love it and be consumed by it.”
The director was equally enthusiastic albeit a bit cautious, when talking about Dakota Tyler.
“This is a casting gamble because Dakota is so new,” Ryder said. “When I read her for the part, I was looking for realism and the ability to take direction and improve with each take. What I discovered, is a natural actress, young and very pretty so I have no doubt she will really kill this part. In fact, the more I think about it, this role was made for her because she’s perfect to play Mandy.”
“I can’t believe that I got the opportunity to read for the part of Mandy let alone get it,” Dakota said. “I don’t know the entire movie story yet, only the couple of pages I tested on, but I got chills just reading those lines.”
“Dakota Tyler hails from Connecticut and brings a sweet vulnerability to the role yet has an internal toughness that will be an asset in a huge movie shoot like this,” Ryder concluded.
