Cam Gigandet is reuniting with his Magnificent Seven director Antoine Fuqua for a starring role in Ice, Fuqua’s drama series for A&T’s Audience network. Jeremy Sisto will star opposite Gigandet in the project, along with Donald Sutherland and Ray Winstone.
The 10-episode Ice, from Fuqua’s Fuqua Films and Entertainment One, was named after the slang word for diamonds. Written/exec produced by Robert Munic, it follows the Green family as they plunge into the underbelly of the L.A. diamond trade. Jake (Gigandet) and Freddy (Sisto) are half-brothers brought together by their father Isaac (Sutherland), the patriarch behind G&G Diamonds, and their uncle Cam (Winstone). After wild card Freddy kills a prominent diamond dealer, Jake must bail him out and save the family business while maneuvering among jewelry thugs, blood-diamond deals, false certificates and the feds.
Fuqua will direct the first episode and serve as executive producer on the show, which begins production this month in Vancouver for a premiere later this year.
XLrator Media and Benattar/Thomas Productions have kicked off production on their latest action-thriller, The Base, starring Cam Gigandet (The Magnificent Seven, Twilight) and directed by Jesse Gustafson. XLrator Media is eyeing a 2017 worldwide release date via its Turbo action label and is also selling foreign rights at the Cannes market beginning this week.
Rick Benattar, Nigel Thomas, Barry Gordon and Michael Radiloff and are producing the film, which is being financed by The Fyzz Facility, with Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones executive producers.
Gigandet stars as the leader of a “Dirty Dozen”-esque band of military prisoners who have to fight off a terrorist attack on the remote “black site” prison in which they’re being held, which, unknown to them, is a cover for a secret drone control facility. The pic is based on an original story by Thomas and Benattar and written by Guy Stevenson.
Cam Gigandet Fan is celebrating its sixth year online today! Thank you to our frequent visitors and all who have supported the site all these years. Shoutout to the previous owners, Holly, Michelle, Jen, and Ursa! And of course, to our previous host, Gertie (Fan Sites Network) for hosting the site for its first 5+ years.
As you can see, I have put up new layouts here on the main site and in the gallery. I had time to work on it last month, and I thought it would be a nice idea to apply it on the site’s anniversary. Hope you all like it as much as I do! And I’m sorry for the minimal updates recently. Things have been quiet recently regarding Cam, but I’m hoping we get new stuff with The Magnificent Seven coming out this year. :)
