Ian Clarkson takes over role of “Dan Johnson” in Double Vision

Double Vision Writer/Producer/Director Terry R. Wickham is happy to announce he has cast Ian Clarkson to take over the role of “Dan Johnson” in Double Vision.

Wickham says, “The original actor that was set to play this character had something happen in his life that will prevent him from being available when we shoot in June.  So rather than re-audition a bunch of actors, I reached out to just Ian Clarkson, who expressed interest in the role.

I had worked with Ian twice before.  He was the Key Grip on my movie “Stash” and I cast him as an actor for in the Red Carpet Film Festival penthouse rooftop scene Edwin M. Figueroa’s film “Choke“, both part of Devil’s Five feature film.  So I knew firsthand of his hard working dedicated approach and how I could count on him to deliver.

This new role is pretty diverse and will really give Ian a challenge to pull off the multidimensionality of the part.  So I went ahead and auditioned just Ian. What he showed me wasn’t quite where I think he needs to be for the movie, but I believe wholeheartedly he will do the things needed to be ready for the shoot in June.

Everyone deserves chances and with all the effort Ian gave to my other films, I felt he earned opportunity to advance  himself as an actor.

As a director sometimes you take risks and in this case I felt Ian should be rewarded to really show what he can do as an actor.”

Bio in Ian Clarkson’s words:

Since graduating, I’ve had numerous roles in the world of TV and Film.  My first role was an Associate Producer working on a film with Joyce Dewitt and Rob Bogue called “Rock Story.” Later I was Project Coordinator on a reality show called “Yalla NY.”  Soon I moved on to network TV working at both Sundance TV and later Nickelodeon. I was then offered a role as Associate Producer at Aspire TV working at reality show “The Graduates.” While working there I began acting on web series my friends were producing and eventually got casted for a supporting role on a short film called “Act Nice”. I’m an all around producer/actor and director in both TV and film.


Mantaray Pictures LLC is looking for a cool looking Muscle Car (old school late 60s or 70s car that’s not dark or black is preference) for a love-story suspense-thriller called Double Vision to be shot on Long Island in May or June.

If you’ve got a souped up/bad-to-the-bone machine your car become one of the iconic characters in this film. Think of the Hemi Cuda in Phantasm series or 1967 Mustang Fastback in Gone in 60 Seconds.

Double Vision is a passionate account where two characters “Julie Goodwin” (to be played by European Model Dolly Fox) and “Wes McCulloch”, who used to be couple, are reconnecting after a decade has passed being apart. As the reunited couple moves towards sealing their relationship together forever at their old Lover’s Lane spot, their mutual bliss is rudely interrupted by a terrifying force determined to stop them from it ever happening.

The car in the movie will be “Wes McCulloch’s” car (this character named after the late legendary horror filmmaker Wes Craven and Drag Racing legend Ed “The Ace” McCulloch).

The car would be needed for a 3 or 4 nights/days of filming. This is an independent film, where everyone is working volunteer, but our ambition is high and the cast & crew first rate. Would love to talk to anyone who might be interested in having their car in our movie to come to some sort of agreement.

Besides the stunning Dolly Fox playing the lead role, the film will be boasting all sorts of melodic hard rock songs (Marco Sfogli, Rex Carroll, Hydrogyn and Fierce Heart) that will be coming from the car stereo, when “Wes” plays a Love Mix CD he made for “Julie” when he drives her to Hemlock Grove (lover’s lane in the movie).

The person who ends up letting the production use their car will be paid something and of course get credit immediately on IMDB.
