HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Will Ryder has announced he is nearing completion of principal shooting for his new feature movie for Adam & Eve titled, “Shunned.”

The paranormal thriller stars Riley Reid, and with one more day remaining on an ambitious production schedule, Ryder said he has only allowed a single ten second clip to be shown to company executives. 

"Frankly, I'm speechless," said Rachel V. creative director of Adam & Eve Pictures after viewing.

According to Ryder, “Shunned” could possibly be released in January during the XBIZ Show, but most details are being kept secret other than the movie will be “scary as hell.”

The female cast has now been revealed with Reid joined by Holly Hendrix, Misty Stone, Sarah Vandella, Kat Dior, Chloe Scott, Nia Nacci, Victoria June, Ziggy Star, Lucky Starr and Veronica Valentine.   

"We have an exciting cast but are still searching for one more female to add to the final day of shooting," stated David.

"I wanted to make a scary-as-hell movie," Ryder offered.     

Co-producer Scott David of X-Play commented, "Will Ryder is really spreading his creative wings and going in directions I never imagined he'd chase. There is so much creativity pouring out of him right now I wish I could tell you everything he's up to but I'll wait until he's ready." 

"Shunned" required extensive physical stunts coordinated by stunt masters Dick Chibbles and Jack Vegas, the studio reported. 

"The amount of strategic planning and physical exertion required to complete these stunts both by the cast and crew was incredible," David added. “1AM Doll USA was also involved with providing real-life likenesses that were used for some of the dangerous aerial stunts. 1AM Doll USA was tremendous in helping us bring the physical stunts to fruition. They have a great product and I don't think we could have finished this movie without them.” 

“Shunned” also marks the reunion of Reid and Ryder who last worked together in the XBIZ-Award winning, “Grease XXX a Parody.” The musical nod to the Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta classic was also produced by Adam & Eve Pictures.

"Riley Reid is a dream come true in every way," Ryder said. "She's a very talented actress, she doesn't bitch and moan, she's very helpful with acting suggestions and willing to spend endless hours on the set. I've loved her since the moment I met her six or seven years ago."

David concluded, "We also want to say Adam & Eve is a fantastic company to work for and I thank them for allowing us to create great movies no matter the genre and 'Shunned' is going to be intense."
