For a short film, David Yohe’s Metamorphosis is certainly signing up some heavy hitters for its cast! Joining the previously announced Nick Searcy (“Justified”, “American Gothic”) and Matt Angel (“CSI: NY”) is Patricia Bethune (“True Blood”, “Mad Men”).
Variety broke the news that Bethune has boarded the project from Isotropic Films, which is planning to begin production in Los Angeles in late July with David Yohe directing from a script he co-wrote with Jason Goldberg. Jeff Laub, Nicole Castro, Cory Bird, and Wade Miller are producing with Goldberg, Yohe, Tara Kleinpeter, and Thom Spitler exec producing.
The story focuses on a 17-year-old who wakes up one morning to an inexplicable illness that transforms him into the unimaginable — a hideous, human-sized cockroach. His parents come home to discover him afraid and hiding from his new form and are now faced with the decision of accepting a monster in their suburban home or exterminating their own son.
