Deadline Hollywood has just posted this article about Witch Hunt. 😀 Cannot wait for the movie!
Writer-director Elle Callahan’s next film will be Witch Hunt, a supernatural thriller about an America where fugitive witches try to evade callous authorities. Production will get underway this summer in Los Angeles. Paradigm and UTA Independent Film Group are handling sales for the film.
Callahan’s follow-up effort to Head Count (which was released June 14 through Samuel Goldwyn) will star Gideon Adlon (Blockers), Abigail Cowen (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost), and Christian Camargo (The Hurt Locker).
The premise: “In a modern America where witches are real and witchcraft is illegal, Witch Hunt follows Claire (Adlon), who must face her own demons and prejudices as she helps two young witches elude authorities to seek asylum in Mexico.”
Witch Hunt has a title that evokes the era of McCarthyism but its themes speak to turbulent contemporary American topics with a story that straddles the southern border shared with Mexico. Callahan says the social messages are part of a valued tradition in the fantasy, sci-f, and horror sector.
“I’ve always been a fan of genre films for their ability to get people to think differently and with new perspectives,” Callahan said. “For me, Witch Hunt is an opportunity to turn the camera back on ourselves and show what’s possible in a society where irrational fears take favor over common decency.”
Eric B. Fleischman’s Defiant Studios is producing alongside Maurice Fadida of Kodiak Pictures. Mickey Gooch Jr. and Diane Gooch of Kodiak will serve as executive producers alongside Andre Druskeit of Telepool.
This will be the fourth film under the Telepool/Kodiak banner with Defiant.

The director of the movie (@ellecallahan) posted this pic with this caption:” Rehearsing for the perfect family dinner in one take”.
We cannot wait to see this film!
What’s happening in that house? They cannot be all her kids… maybe with “family” she meant “witch family”… we know that witchcraft is illegal and they even have a department of witchcraft investigations in the movie. So excited, we really love this stuff. HAHA!
Is Liz’s character there to protect the kids?

UPDATE (June 22): The production posted this photo. It’s just from the back, but it seems Liz’s character is the only adult in the house. We wonder what’s her relationship with the kids and the 4 girls in one of the first photos of the production. We cannot wait to see this movie!
UPDATE (June 21): The producer of the movie (Eric Fleischman) posted this pic on his ig. It was the last day of shooting. Elizabeth looks beautiful! <3
UPDATE: A make-up artist of the movie (Carrie Mercado) posted this gorgeous photo of Liz and wrote: “Shooting at Dolores’ house with the lovely Elizabeth Mitchell…”
Elizabeth is really beautiful in this! <3
Thank you so much @amberr.mcg for the head-up!
The Crovetti twins posted this video of the same moment:
UPDATE: Echo has just posted this video of the kids having fun on set (Liz included):
It’s so sweet she sings and plays with them. Awww Elizabeth is so adorable! <3
People who work on Witch Hunt posted a couple of pics and a video:
The person in the photo with Liz (Jess Varley) wrote this caption. “Liz!! Beautiful inside and out!!”
Tell us something with don’t know! 😀 😛
The other photo was posted by the young girl Echo Campbell.
The director of the movie posted this ig story.
It is really weird, she is in front of a clothes hanger, with something unclear in her hand… haha what is she doing? Opening a “door”? 😀 We love this kind of stuff!
And the director also said this about the movie in an interview:
It’s about a modern-day witch hunt in a world very similar to our own, but in America witchcraft is illegal and there’s a repercussion for that. It’s very female centric, really revolved all around women and spooky.
We created the info page for this project, you can check it out at this link.

Elizabeth is in a new film called “Witch Hunt”. They’ve been filming it in California.
One of the people (Chris Abernathy) who are working on the movie posted a photo of Liz on ig. As you can see she has dark hair. 🙂
It’s funny that in the movie there’s an actress of the only show we care about, otherwise we wouldn’t even know about this new film. There’s no info online.
