Tuesday, August 24, 2021 | News


The mind-teasing film is currently completing production in Los Angeles.

Kenny Yates is making his directorial debut on REBROKEN, which was scripted by Kipp Tribble from an idea by Scott Hamm; the duo also star in the movie and are producing with Yates. In addition to them and fright favorite Tobin Bell, Alison Haislip and Nija Okoro appear in REBROKEN; the synopsis: “The story follows the methodical mental breakdown of Will [Hamm], who is struggling with the loss of his beloved daughter. He is soon befriended by a mysterious stranger [Bell] who claims he can set Will on a path which could reunite him with his daughter. But when the ‘dream come true’ begins to turn into a nightmare, Will doesn’t know who to trust.”

“It was a fun challenge to construct the pieces of this puzzle during the development and scripting stages,” Tribble says, “even if at times it made our brains hurt. And it has been exciting to see the fantastic ideas that Kenny and Nate Stifler, our director of photography, brought to the project.”

“I’ve always been a huge fan of psychological thrillers,” Hamm adds. “SILENCE OF THE LAMBS is one of my favorite movies and I just love the genre. I’m beyond grateful to be a part of this film as both an actor and a producer. We’ve assembled such an incredible team of people both behind and in front of the camera. Getting to work alongside a pro like Tobin Bell, as well as up-and-coming stars like Nija Okoro, is truly an honor and I can’t wait for people to see this film.”
