CrossCheck has entered a first look film deal with STXfilms and this will be their first project.
According to Deadline, Halloween Party follows “two friends on the fringes of Hollywood go on a hunt for a crazy gamer’s fabled Halloween party. Their chase takes them through legendary ragers, haunted mansions, and the hidden depths of their own friendship as they try to get a taste of Hollywood glamor.”
“Josh and Michael [Gruen] are already in business with some of the biggest and most successful content creators and brands in the world, whether it’s Walmart or the NHL. The entire team at CrossCheck Studios are among the most innovative, creative, plugged in and impressive group out there today,” STXfilms Motion Picture Group chairman Adam Fogelson shared in a statement. “This deal is about working with and tapping into a talent pool and team that develops and interacts with a new generation of storytellers differently than any other production company, agency or legacy company around.”
“Adam has been a mentor of mine over the last year and has offered incredible guidance both personally and professionally,” Josh said. “I am proud to join forces with him and the team at STX to continue on my journey to tell amazing stories to Gen Z, a truly underserved generation. Together, we will continue to break the norm and show fellow digital natives that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.”
