Photography Tim Palen
Behold the exclusive first look at the concept art of Paz De La Huerta (of Boardwalk Empire and Enter the Void fame) as Abby Russell, the central character in Lionsgate’s forthcoming “psycho-sexual” 3D thriller, Nurse 3D. The film, to be directed by emerging filmmaker Douglas Aarniokoski, is inspired in part by photographs of fantastical, sado-masochistic nurses by Lionsgate Chief Marketing Officer Tim Palen, a well-known tastemaker within the horror genre—and the photographer behind the image above.
“In his original nurse photos and the fan conversation that ensued, Tim had clearly scratched the surface of a very great concept,” says the studio’s President of Production, Mike Paseornek. “The idea of a film noir depiction of a beautiful nurse who uses her sexuality to very severe ends.” He adds, “That concept was the perfect germ for this thrilling story, which will be extremely visceral in 3D.”
Principle photography on the film will begin on September 6th in Toronto.
