The titles include "The Black Hole Project," about an experiment at a particle accelerator facility that goes wrong. Pic is shooting this month in St. Louis.
"The Gryphon," which will begin production next spring in Sofia, Bulgaria, revolves around warring tribes in the 13th century who must band together to stop a sorcerer and evil creation, the gryphon.
