Rainn Wilson, David Morse & More Join SpectreVision’s ‘The Boy’, Kevin Nealon Cast In Indie Comedy ‘Ghost Dog’
SpectreVision’s The Boy is rounding out its cast. Rainn Wilson, David Morse, Mike Vogel, Zuleikha Robinson and Bill Sage have signed on to the first film of a planned trilogy tracking the childhood of a serial killer. Based on the short film Henley, which appeared in competition at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, the films will track the killer at ages 9, 14 and 18, respectively, leading to his full transformation to an iconic mass murderer. Wilson plays William Colby, an enigmatic stranger who intrigues and beguiles the young Ted Henley, who will be played by 8-year-old Jared Breeze. Morse portrays John Henley, motel owner and Ted’s father. Vogel and Robinson play a married couple, who along with their son (Aiden Lovekamp) spend the night at the Henley motel. Sage will portray the sheriff of the rural town in which the Henleys reside.
EXCLUSIVE: The genre-leaning production company founded as The Woodshed in 2010 by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller has undergone an identity change. The outfit has been rebranded SpectreVision and has also added a music division, teaming with Redbird Music Management’s Tim Husom to form SpectreVision Management. The name change reflects a wider scope as SpectreVision expands into music while continuing to build a film production portfolio.
“As our company began to expand its horizons, the name SpectreVision served to exemplify more our broadened platform: technology capturing the ineffable,” said Elijah Wood. Among SpectreVision’s current slate are horror-comedy Cooties starring Alison Pill and Rainn Wilson; Toad Road, which is set for a theatrical/VOD release this year by Artsploitation; and Iran-set vampire love story A Girl Walks Home At Night which is in post-production.
