Chris Carter Turns Fencewalker

With his new “X-Files” film not hitting theaters til next month, it’s surprising to hear that director Chris Carter has moved onto his next project says The Hollywood Reporter.

The dark drama “Fencewalker” is described as a coming-of-age semiautobiographical character piece with no supernatural elements. Natalie Dormer, Katie Cassidy, Xzibit, Derek Magyar and Meckah Brooks star.

What’s interesting is that the project is shooting right now in and around the Los Angeles, yet none of the reps for the actors involved would confirm if any such filming is taking place.

Carter raised the financing himself and there’s no distributor at this point which is allowing him great control over and secrecy about the project.
