Justified's Nick Searcy Joins David Yohe's Metamorphosis
And another version of Franz Kafka's classic short story "Metamorphosis" is on its way, this time in the form of an indie drama thriller from director David Yohe and starring veteran actor Nick Searcy ("Justified", "American Gothic").
Per Variety Isotropic Films is planning to begin production on the Metamorphosis short film in Los Angeles in late July with David Yohe directing from a script he co-wrote with Jason Goldberg. Jeff Laub, Nicole Castro, and Wade Miller are producing with Goldberg, Yohe, and Thom Spitler exec producing. Matt Angel ("CSI: NY") also stars.
"We are making a film with a very direct social message," Yohe said. "It's a metaphor for being different, change, and most importantly how fear can make us do harmful things to others and to ourselves."
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.
