As those watching for news leaks from the set of the upcoming X-Files: Fight The Future have learned, writer/director Chris Carter is good at keeping secrets. It should come as no surprise then that the Hollywood Reporter has uncovered that Carter is already midway through the production of his next film, Fencewalker.
The Reporter describes the film as “a coming-of-age semiautobiographical character piece with no supernatural elements.” The cast reportedly includes Natalie Dormer, Katie Cassidy, Xzibit, Derek Magyar and Meckah Brooks.
The fact that the film is more of a drama than a genre piece may explain why it hasn’t shown up on the geek press radar. Both Carter’s and the cast’s agents would not confirm to the Reporter that the film was in production.
Produced independently on financing raised by Carter, the film has no distributor yet.
