The horror movie Liz started shooting in the woods near New York yesterday turned out to be Animal, an original movie produced by the horror network Chiller. There still has been no confirmation from official side, but the cast and crew have been posting a lot of pictures from set, so it's hard to believe that it could be another movie.
Animal is set for a 2014 release, where it will get limited theatrical runs via Synthetic Cinema International before debuting on Video On Demand in partnership with NBCU Digital Distribution. You can read the synopsis below:
When plans for a weekend vacation hit a dead end, a group of close-knit friends find themselves stranded in unfamiliar territory, pursued by a menacing, blood thirsty predator. Holed up in an isolated cabin, tensions mount as long-buried secrets are revealed. As the body count rises, the group must put their differences aside and fight for survival.
Next to Liz, we will also see Keke Palmer, Parker Young, Jeremy Sumpter, Paul Iacono, and others in the movie. Animal is from executive producers Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen, and producers Chris Miller, Ember Truesdell, Kelly Smith and Thommy Hutson for Flower Films. The film is written by Thommy Hutson and Catherine Trillo and directed by Brett Simmons; creature effects are by Gary J. Tunnicliffe.

Further details and the title have yet to be revealed, but it is likely that Keke Palmer will also be part of the cast. Make sure to follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date as more information will hopefully be revealed soon. With Jawbreaker and this horror movie in the works, it looks like we've got an exciting year ahead of us!
Liz is currently shooting a music video with Max Schneider for a new cover that has yet to be revealed! )Some of you will probably remember their insane cover of Somewhere Only We Know from last year.) I've added a few medium quality pictures from set:

Good news for all of you who have missed Liz on Broadway: She has officially been cast for the role of Courtney Shayne in Jawbreaker - the Musical, as producer Darren Stein announced over Twitter yesterday:
"@DarrenStein: @LizGillies Welcome to the cast of @jawbreakerBway #COURTNEYSHAYNE #SATANINHEELS #LEARNITLIVEITLOVEIT"
The musical is based on the 1999 movie starring Rose McGowan, Julie Benz and Rebecca Gayheart, in which three of the most popular girls at Reagan High accidentally kill the prom queen with a jaw-breaker when a kidnapping goes horribly wrong. Liz's character Courtney is the cold-blooded queen bee of the school, who demands respect through terror.
The reading for Jawbreaker will be in the last week of September and after that it will be decided when and where the show will take place. For more information keep and eye on the official website and follow Darren Stein and Jawbreaker on Twitter! Of course we will keep you up-to-date here and on our Twitter as well.
I am very excited to see what this new era will bring and I wish Liz the best of luck!
