is pleased to announce that it has launched pre-production on ‘Isis Rising: Curse of the Lady Mummy’ shooting on location in Arizona.  This marks the first in a planned franchise for the scantily clad supernatural hellraiser played by the undeniably beautiful Indian-born film star, Priya Rai, along with co-star James Bartholet who has appeared in more than 47 films to date.  Isis marks the pair’s mainstream debut as associate producers.Lisa Palencia, who also wrote the screenplay, directs the film in which a group of college co-eds take on a deadly assignment for their final course in Archeology with a world renowned Egyptologist. As they learned in their studies about ancient Egypt, Isis and Osiris ruled the land. All were happy for the couple except one, Set, a jealous man who killed Osiris in order to take over his kingdom. Isis snuck into Osiris’ tomb and tried to raise him from the dead using her black magic.
Set caught Isis in the act and had Osiris cut to pieces, with each piece buried in a different part of the land, so Isis could never again raise her husband. Isis vowed to avenge Osiris’ death and return with him to rule over all the worlds.
Now, the students have gone too far as they haphazardly awaken the ancient spirit of Isis’ lost soul and her wrath is unleashed on the group. As they start to disappear one by one, the students must band together to stop Isis from rising her dead lover Osiris and his evil army of the dead.”This a very a very exciting project to be working on, and I am so thrilled and honored to be starring in it. It’s going to be a lot of fun filming this. I love horror movies, and I can’t wait to get started”, said Rai.

Bartholet, who plays an ill-fated Security Guard, comments, “The script looks great, it’s very suspenseful, and the audiences will love it. We’re very happy to not only be co-starring in this, but also working as associate producers as well. We’re very fortunate that a production company is giving us the chance to show our mainstream acting and producing side to the world.”

TomCat Films, LLC, President and founder, Ted Chalmers feels the film will be a winner out of the gates, “The elements are all here in line with the TomCat brand. We’ve got a sexy, supernatural antagonist, a thrilling storyline, visual effects and a star in the gorgeous, talented Priya Rai, whom I’ve envisioned for the role since I first conceived the project.”
