Finn Wolfhard and When You Finish Saving the World’s star Billy Bryk are set to write and direct the horror-comedy “Hell of a Summer.”
The film will feature Wolfhard, Bryk and Fred Hechinger (“The White Lotus,” “Pam and Tommy”) in the lead roles. The plot details are being kept tightly under wraps.
“I am so excited to be co-directing my first feature film,” said Wolfhard. “I get the chance to work with an incredible cast and crew, and to work with a company like 30West and Aggregate is a real dream.”
Hechinger, Aggregate Films’ Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan, and Parts and Labor’s Jay Van Hoy will produce the film, with principal photography beginning this month in Ontario, Canada. 30West is fully financing, executive producing the film and co-representing the worldwide rights alongside CAA Media Finance.
Finn Wolfhard made his directorial debut with his first short film “Night Shifts.” The short was accepted into the Fantasia Film Festival, where it received the Silver Audience Award for best Canadian short.
