Fairfield native has hand in 'Wicked Blood'

After viewing the script, Craig Albrecht knew right away that he wanted to be part of "Wicked Blood," the eOne Home Video action thriller released this month on Blu-Ray and DVD.

Albrecht, 50, a Fairfield native and 1981 graduate of Sandy Creek, has been working in the movie industry in Hollywood for 23 years. "Wicked Blood," represents his third go-around as executive producer on a film project. Previous projects include "Skip Day," which debuted in 2008, and "Bottoms Up" in 2006.

Filmed in Baton Rouge, La., the film stars Academy Award nominee Abigail Breslin as Hannah Lee Baker, a teenager trapped in the dark Southern underworld of gun violence, meth labs and vicious biker gangs. The scene is ruled by Uncle Frank Stinson (Sean Bean), who runs the illegal family business with an iron fist.

"It turned out very well," Albrecht said. "I think everybody is really going to enjoy it. It's a really good, tight film with great actors.
"It's such an incredible feeling for me right now seeing a project through from the beginning to the end and seeing it get distributed. That's why I do what I do."
