After the trailer looks and the latest clip, things will get out of hand very quickly if Hank doesn't figure out his next steps in time.
Jeremy Gardner recently revealed how he came up with the idea for the horror film 2020 After Midnight . According to the director / star, it all started when he thought about his own relationship and then merged this idea with another. It took Gardner a while to produce the results, but it seems that it was worth it. He had to say this.
"Well, I was in a very long relationship that was on the rise. I started thinking about how a person in a relationship might give up more of what they should maintain This status quo of this lifestyle. That drives a wedge in the relationship even more. It all came down to sacrifice and relationships. Then I had the vision of a couch in front of a door. To my question, why is that? Couch in front of this door? Why is a gun open? Then I started marrying these two ideas of something trying to get into a house and that relationship between the couple. I'm a very slow writer so the story has gotten together over time . "
Writing the script After midnight was completed almost a decade ago. Jeremy Gardner and Chris Stella have had difficulty finding someone to produce the project over the years. It wasn't until they met Dave Lawson, Justin Benson and Aaron Morehead that things finally started to roll. According to Stella, "they rushed to help this project. They gave us the budget to do this." Fortunately, the masses only have to wait a day to see after midnight .
