Spygirl Pictures, a New York-based genre film and television company, will be collaborating with Belfast-based Causeway Pictures to form Causeway NY, the US arm of the genre-based production company. The new firm plans to combine resources and funding opportunities to produce original content in Northern Ireland, Ireland and the US.

The first project to benefit from Causeway NY will be the US elements of ‘Hostage to the Devil’, a feature documentary about exorcist Father Malachi Martin in New York, which is helmed by Irish director, Marty Stalker. The film is currently in production, with shooting in the USA commencing this month. Umbrella Entertainment has already signed on to distribute the documentary in Australia and New Zealand.

Formed by Chris Patterson and Paddy McCarney in 2009, Causeway Pictures has co-produced incoming productions while developing a bank of original genre scripts. It aims to create Ireland’s only genre production house.

Managing director of Causeway Pictures, Chris Patterson, explains the benefits of this latest development for the film: “Having a trans-Atlantic presence is vital to the on-going development of our business strategy and we are elated to be teaming up with the talent at Spygirl Pictures to form Causeway NY.”

Female-owned and operated, Spygirl Pictures specializes in horror, science fiction, fantasy, and comic-based media for film, television, and the web. Spygirl founder Kathleen Green said, "We're incredibly excited to be teaming up with a company whose aesthetic is so closely aligned with ours, in a way that gives us all greater flexibility in how we create fun media."

Spygirl founder Kat Green’s credits include editing and post-production projects for the Weinstein Company, HBO, A&E, MTV, and the Sundance Channel. Head of business development Susan Archer has a combined background in acting, production, and finance.

Spygirl Pictures and Causeway will work together on a genre feature slate that will consist mainly horror and sci-fi projects including horror actioner ‘Creedmore’ and apocalyptic love story ‘Dinner of the Dead’ by comic author Chris Miskiewicz, about a couple hashing out their relationship issues while fighting the zombie apocalypse.

Causeway NY will also provide production services in both locations for foreign and corporate projects.
