More casting news has come in for the latest flick from SpectreVision partners Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller, entitled The Boy, as Rainn Wilson, David Morse, Mike Vogel, Zuleikha Robinson, and Bill Sage have all signed up to keep an eye on this evil little bastard.
Principal photography began February 17, 2014, on the SpectreVision production of The Boy, based on the award-winning short subject film Henley, which appeared in competition at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
The Boy is the first film of a planned trilogy tracking the childhood of a future serial killer, with installments depicting the character at ages 9, 14, and 18, respectively, and ending with his full transformation to an iconic mass murderer.
The Boy is directed by Craig McNeill from a screenplay by McNeill and Clay McLeod Chapman, who created the characters in his novel Miss Corpus. The pair previously collaborated on the respective direction and writing of the short film. SpectreVision’s Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller serve as producers. Partnering with SpectreVision on the project is Chiller Films.
The title role of Ted Henley will be portrayed by 8-year-old Jared Breeze (pictured), who came to the attention of the producers when he made his feature film debut in the SpectreVision production of Cooties, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
Also appearing in the film from the cast of Cooties is Aiden Lovekamp, who starred in Paranormal Activity 4. Lovekamp will portray a young boy who passes through Ted’s world with his parents.
The Boy is filming on location in Medellín, Colombia.
