Spectrevision to produce Lucas Amann's Popsicle

Elijah Wood's production company Spectrevision has lined up its next kooky horror project! Next on the chopping block is POPSICLE, writer-director Lucas Amann's feature film adaptation of his own 2008 short film. Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh Waller are producing alongside Lee Stobby and Red Sea Media's Kyle Hansen.

Amann, who has previously been a set dresser on ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE and worked on the set of MACHETE, directed and wrote the twisted fairy tale. Says EP Roman Kopelevich, the film is “reminiscent of cult classics such as THE GOONIES and PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS. If Willy Wonka went mad and started trapping children inside of his Chocolate Factory, we’d be close to the world that Lucas has created.”

POPSICLE tells the story of:

12-year-old Wyatt and his younger sister Rory, as they wake to find themselves trapped in a fantastical underground palace designed by a madman with a penchant for all things childlike. They take refuge with a tribe of lost and forgotten children who are also stuck in the maze, but when Rory is snatched away by their new “Daddy,” Wyatt and the others must band together and rescue her from the deepest recesses of his labyrinth.
