It's been a while since we last heard word on director Trevor Ryan and screenwriter Tim Ryan's sci-fi/horror tale WELCOME TO WILLITS, with our last report coming back in July of 2013 when JESSABELLE actor Mark Webber had signed on to star and executive produce the project. Now Webber is set to be joined onscreen by his real life wife, WARM BODIES star Teresa Palmer, in a feature adaptation of the SXSW sci-fi/horror short, now titled WELCOME TO WILLITS: AFTER SUNDOWN, according to Variety.
The story will focus on...
...a group of young campers who get lost in the woods near Willits, Calif. — the heart of “the Emerald Triangle” — while looking for hot springs. They find themselves entangled with a man whose mounting paranoia about alien invaders makes him increasingly dangerous.
Palmer’s real-life husband Mark Webber will reprise his role from the short as the paranoid man and Palmer will play his niece.
