Mark Webber, who starred in SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD and will next be seen in SAW 3D director Kevin Greutert's supernatural thriller JESSABELLE, is set to star and executive produce indie horror/sci-fi pic WELCOME TO WILLITS, which Metamorphic Films and Real Horror Show Pictures have slated for an October production start according to Deadline.
Webber plays pot farmer Brock, who along with some unlucky campers runs into mysterious creatures in the Northern California woods that are responsible for several abductions and attacks. The project is described as capturing a throwback feel with a dash of comedy mixed in with the horror.
The film is written and directed by Trevor and Tim Ryan, AKA the Ryan Brothers, and has tapped Monster FX’s Ron Karkosa and Mark Villalobos to handle creature design and special FX.
