James_Clayton_montage_addtxtJames Clayton has won the prestigious IndieFEST Film Award of Excellence for his lead role of Peter in the upcoming thriller CANDiLAND; also starring Gary Busey and Chelah Horsdal. CANDiLAND is based on the novel by Elizabeth Engstrom and will be distributed in North America by IndustryWorks Pictures spring 2016.

“It is an extreme honor and privilege to be awarded this distinction. This is really a reflection of all the hard work of the crew, cast, and everyone who supported this great film.  I am eternally in debt to my co-leads Gary Busey and Chelah Horsdal who were an inspiration everyday and will no doubt be recognized for their outstanding performances in this film. As well as to the magnetic Elizabeth Engstrom, and of course, our inventive and extraordinary leader, writer/Editor/Director Rusty Nixon.” says James Clayton.

CANDiLAND: Struggling to rebuild their lives, a former tennis star (James Clayton) and a recent divorcee (Chelah Horsdal) decide to isolate themselves from the world in a quest for true “oneness”; as their affair descends into savagery, his father (Gary Busey) must fight to save them before they disappear completely into madness.

James has been building a career of diverse characters and is known for his deep commitment and detailed preparation. The character of Peter marks a new benchmark for James as he lost 55 pounds, shaved his head, and shaved down his front tooth for the role.

James who currently appears in several episodes of Fox TV’s Minority Report also produced and starred in the Sci-Fi/Thriller Down The Line (2014). He also starred in the Caper Comedy Foodland (2011). Clayton began his acting career at the age of sixteen when he booked his first role in K19: The Widowmaker (2001), starring Harrison Ford and directed by Kathryn Bigelow. Since then, he has added an extensive list of versatile characters to his resume. In 2004, James went on to a supporting lead role in the Horror feature Adam and Evil followed by a leading role in the Thriller feature The Bentley Box (2004) and honed his comedic skills while leading in the head-banger Comedy, Blackbridge (2006). On television, James has appeared on the hit CW series Supernatural (2009), Fox’s Fringe (2011), and has appeared as leading roles in multiple commercial campaigns for clients such as Reebok, Suddenlink, Kia, and Telus.

Is Gary Busey really ‘God’? IndustryWorks Studios Acquires the World Wide Rights to Independent Film CANDiLAND (2015)

Oscar Nominee Gary Busey stars in CANDiLAND

A069_C004_04183Z

IndustryWorks Studios has acquired the World Wide distribution rights to the psychological drama CANDiLAND starring Gary Busey in what might very well be his ‘comeback role’. IndustryWorks will be bringing the film to Cannes to sell at the 2015 Marche du Film.

CANDiLAND stars Oscar nominee Gary Busey (The Buddy Holly Story), Chelah Horsdal (Arrow, Hell on Wheels) and James Clayton (Foodland). CANDiLAND marks a nuanced departure for Busey, who has been seen recurrently as a contestant in reality TV shows such as NBC’S The Apprentice. Busey was drawn to the role, finding parallels between his character Arnie and himself and the echoes of the father/son relationship shown in the film familiar. His performance plays earnest and sincere.

CANDiLAND tells the story of intensified mutual attraction to the point of deadly obsession. Peter (James Clayton), a retired and embittered tennis pro, who is estranged from his father Arnie (Gary Busey), decides to leave the solace of his apartment and happens upon Tess (Chelah Horsdal). Tess, a recent vulnerable divorcee, finds Peter’s intensity and attention irresistible. Together they pursue ‘oneness’ and consciously shut out the world, barricading themselves inside Peter’s apartment. A desperate Arnie attempts to liberate the pair from CANDiLAND– but will he make it in time?

Gary Busey states “CANDiLAND teaches us to pay attention to the heart of the injured like you haven’t paid attention before.”

Rusty Nixon says, “Elizabeth Engstrom’s cult novel has haunted me since I first read it twenty years ago. It was an honour to bring the book to life and to work with such a passionate cast and crew to create an unforgettable film experience.”

Produced by Motorcycle Boy and Greendale Productions, CANDiLAND was written and directed by Rusty Nixon.

Horror-Thriller Feature Film ‘CANDiLAND’ starring Gary Busey, James Clayton and Chelah Horsdal

The Promotion People - CandilandShooting schedule allows time for actors to have a dramatic weight loss to become emaciated for their roles.

Busey’s character showcases his incredible humanity and dramatic talent. 

Motorcycle Boy Productions and Greendale Productions are pleased to announce the horror-thriller feature film CANDiLAND will be in production in Vancouver from April 13 to 20, 2014.  Executive Producers are James Clayton (Down The Line), Blaine Anderson and Roseanne Milliken (Tucker & Dale vs Evil). Producers are Marc Petey (Down The Line) and Marena Dix. Screenplay is written and directed by Rusty Nixon and based on the novel Candyland by award winning novelist, Elizabeth Engstrom.  Music supervision and original score is by Gemini Award Winner, Tim Hart.

The Promotion People - Gary Busey Academy Award Nominated Gary Busey (The Buddy Holly Story, Lethal Weapon, Point Break) plays Arnie, James Clayton’s (Down The Line, Fringe) character Peter’s alcoholic father.  Leo Award Nominated Chelah Horsdal (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Arrow, Hell on Wheels) plays Tess. The film is being shot in two blocks, nine weeks apart, to allow James Clayton and Chelah Horsdal the time needed for a dramatic weight loss – as their characters become emaciated after a year of isolation keeping true to the novel.

Recently divorced and heartbroken, Tess finds herself abandoned at a bar on her girl’s night out. There she encounters the eccentric and rich Peter – a man cursed with the condition of heightened sensory perception and desperately searching for a moment’s peace. The two instantly fall in love and withdraw to Peter’s apartment for a lengthy and addicting love affair. Days of bliss pass by but when Tess realizes she should leave and resume her life, Peter proposes a dangerous idea – isolate each other in his apartment to create their own pure reality; one free of pain and the dictates of society. Now, cut off from the world and locked inside what Peter calls CANDiLAND, the lovers embark on a dogmatic quest for a higher existence. But slowly, they begin to descend into madness – turning the once lovers into mortal enemies. The Promotion People - CANDiLAND
