(Los Angeles, CA: July 2nd, 2018) As reported in Deadline, Provocator announced that production has just finished in Los Angeles on BIT, a vampire horror film written and directed by Brad Michael Elmore.

Nicole was featured in the HBO documentary “The Trans List” and is the subject of the New York Times bestselling book “Becoming Nicole: The Transformation of an American Family” by author Amy Ellis Nutt.

BIT also stars Diana Hopper (“Goliath”), M.C. Gainey (DJANGO UNCHAINED), James Paxton (“Eyewitness”) Friday Chamberlain (THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS), Greg Hill (OPERATION FINALE), Zolee Griggs (“Adam Knows Everything”) and first time actor Char Diaz.
BIT is produced by Nicholas Cafritz, Robert Reed Peterson, Louis Steyn, T.J. Steyn, Peter Winther and executive produced by Michael D. Jones. The film was shot by cinematographer Cristina Dunlap and line-produced by Veronica Radaelli.
