LOS ANGELES — Darenzia is spearheading an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to produce the original sci-fi film, “Crossover.”
The Penthouse model and actress, who has appeared on The Howard Stern Show, Ink Master, and The ABCs of Death, is appealing to fans to help raise funds; the campaign offers a variety of incentives for funders, including concept art, temporary tattoos, posters, a custom latex corset, producer credits, film premiere attendance, and more.
“We're trying to raise at least the bare minimum we need in order to do this project properly,” Darenzia said. “’Crossover’ is a science fiction action adventure film, intended as a proof-of-concept for a feature length version and potential franchise. It also functions as a complete, self-contained film.”
The proposed film takes place in the distant future, where humanity exists in two forms: uumans and transhumans. Humans are confined to underground sectors, where biological survival is still an option. Transhumans have permanently transplanted their consciousness into artificial bodies, in order to join society on the surface, through a transplantation process is known as the “Crossover."
“I will be playing the Transhuman persona of the protagonist, June,” Darenzia said. “As part of the pre-production phase, I will be getting life-cast of my body, as we are developing a set of cool weapons and prosthetics for my character.”
The team behind “Crossover” includes Universal Pictures and Marvel/DC artists, a stunt double from "Orange is the New Black" and John Wick, an SFX makeup artist from "Boardwalk Empire," "Elementary," and "The Blacklist," a costume designer with a background designing pieces for Madonna, Alice Cooper, and Marilyn Manson, and more.
Principal photography is slated to begin late 2015 in New York City, shooting on the Red Epic Dragon.
