Gia Skova's The Serpent will make Market debut at AFM

As  strong  female roles continue  to dominate  on  the  big screen, Gia  Skova takes hers one  step further in her new film, The Serpent, an  explosive  action thriller anticipated  to  wrap a firm  hold  of  the  box  office  upon  release.

The internationally recognized  Russian  supermodel-turned-actress not  only  stars as the  female  lead,  she  is  also  the director, producer and writer.  Skova  plays  a  CIA  operative,  code named The  Serpent, who  uncovers  she  is  being  exploited  by her own agency as part of a nefarious scheme connected to her assignment. A race against time, she flees her team’s watchful eye where her escape takes her to China in an attempt to unravel a major global conspiracy.

With  the  film  70%  completed, Skova  eyes a  2018  release.“We are  thrilled  to  announce  the making of this special film,” says the international beauty. “The process for us started two years ago and continues to be a labor of love that we look forward to sharing with the world.”THE SECRET MISSION OF THE SERPENT

This intercontinental thriller marks a directorial debut for Skova and offers a glimpse into her rare combination  of  artistic  aptitude,  emotional  range,  athletic  ability and  versatility,  which  includes performing all her own stunts. In a story of reality colliding with art, Skova draws off of her own intelligence, skill and strength to portray her character, who boldly challenges one of the world’s most powerful organizations in an adrenaline chase to bring justice to the innocent. With  its  largely  international  cast  and  over  30%  of  the film being  shot  in  China, Skova  shares, “We are pleased to have the Chinese market open its doors to us, welcoming our engagement as the  film continues  to  build  momentum.”

The  Serpent is  primed for  a  strong  showing domestically and internationally, including China. Producing the film alongside Skova are partner Pasha Skovorodin and three-time Daytime Emmy Award  winner  Jared  Safier  (The  Bay). The  Serpent also  stars  Tzi  Ma,  who  is  best  known  for  his roles  in Veep,  Arrival,  and 24,  as  well  as  Jason  Scott Jenkins  (American  Horror Story) and Craig Conway (Doomsday). There are two additional male lead roles which have yet to be cast.  While top name options are currently being considered, this casting opportunity remains open.

Skova will be attending the AFM intent on aligning with star power and investors keen  on  sharing  her  vision  for  completing  production  on her  film. She  will  be  hosting  a special reception  in  Santa  Monica  during  AFM  as  part  of a  first-look showing of The Serpent’s advance demo.

Buyers  and  producers  are encouraged to  attend: November  1-7at  2:00pm  daily. All further details will be announced shortly.
