Olivia Luccardi (Channel Zero, It Follows) is set to lead the cast of writer-director John Swab’s Candy Land, which is being described as a gritty horror-thriller.
The film will follow Remy (Luccardi), a young disciple of a religious cult, who stumbles upon a rag-tag group of truck stop sex workers (known as “lot lizards”) who take her under their wing. But as Remy immerses herself in this new underground world, her true colours are revealed in a way that neither her former family nor new family could have ever imagined…
Candy Land’s cast also includes Guinevere Turner (American Psycho), Eden Brolin, Sam Quartin, Owen Campbell, Billy Baldwin, Virginia Rand, and Brad Carter. Principal photography is currently underway.
