The Fear Monger: Get Cooties From Cage Fights In A Field In England This Week In Horror
Elijah Wood’s SpectreVision Producing Unique Serial Killer Film TrilogyHold your hand up if you thought Elijah Wood’s name was going to come up more than once. His SpectreVision production company, which he runs with Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller, will next be taking on an interesting project from director Craig Macneill and Clay McLeod Chapman. They will turn their 2012 Sundance short Henley into a full feature called The Boy, which will serve as the first of three films. But this isn’t about a superhero or a teen who can save the world from some evil threat. This is the evil threat.
Written by the pair, The Boy will follow future serial killer Ted Henley at the age of 9, and I’m not quite sure what else the film will have going for it. The other two films in the trilogy will track Henley’s progress at ages 14 and 18, and will end as he truly drifts over the edge into a murderer. He will be played by 8-year-old Jared Breeze, one of the young students in the previously mentioned Cooties. Principal photography will begin on The Boy on February 17, 2014 in Columbia.
