Screen Daily reports that Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Walking Dead) is set to star opposite Benjamin Evan Ainsworth (The Haunting of Bly Manor) in Felix, an upcoming horror movie centring around a ventriloquist doll.
Described as “Super 8 meets Child’s Play,” Felix will be directed by John Kissack (Everfall) and written by Casey Giltner. In the movie, “Charlie and his best friend Jimmy are making a film and dream of becoming big-time Hollywood directors. When Charlie’s father finds an old ventriloquist’s doll named Felix among his late mother’s belongings, Charlie and Jimmy cast the doll as the creepy antagonist. Through a chain of increasingly sinister and disturbing events, the family discovers that Felix has a mind of his own and it’s up to Charlie and Jimmy to rid their family of an ominous force.”
Felix is slated to begin shooting in Winnipeg, Canada this spring.
