“Downton Abbey” director Andy Goddard is helming the film, which he co-wrote with actor Celyn Jones.
Elijah Wood has signed on to star in Set Fire to the Stars, a period movie exploring the relationship between poets John Malcolm Brinnin and Dylan Thomas.
Andy Goddard, best known for helming key episodes of Downton Abbey, co-wrote the script and is directing. Celyn Jones (Jo) co-wrote the script with Goddard and will portray Thomas opposite Wood’s Brinnin.
The movie is set to begin filming at the end of the month and counts Kelly Reilly (Flight, Sherlock Holmes), Shirley Henderson (the Harry Potter movies) and Steven Mackintosh (Luther) in its cast.
A.J. Riach is producing while Steve Clark-Hall, who frequently collaborates with Guy Ritchie (the Sherlock Holmes movies and the upcoming Man from U.N.C.L.E. are among his credits) is exec producing.
Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals has been lined up to compose the score for the movie.
Brinnin was a Canadian-born American poet who was instrumental in bringing Thomas, known as the “doomed poet,” into the U.S. for his famed visits in the early 1950s, leading up to his death in 1953. He had to deal with the drunken Welsh man’s increasingly erratic behavior, even writing about those final years in a 1955 book, Dylan Thomas in America.
The movie will explore the turbulent relationship between Brinnin and his hero, with shooting taking place on location in and around Thomas’ home of Swansea, Wales.
Goddard directed the season-three finale of Abbey, as well as the recent Christmas special, among the show’s episodes. He also helmed episodes of Doctor Who, Torchwood, Dracula and Once Upon a Time. Additionally, he is attached to the Patricia Highsmith feature The Blunderer, being produced by Ted Hope and Killer Films’ Christine Vachon with Sierra/Affinity financing.
Wood, who has been starring in TV’s quirky comedy Wilfred, next will be seen on the big screen in the thriller Grand Piano. The actor has been producing and starring in horror movies via his SpectreVision banner and has his first two productions, Cooties, about a virus that turns school kids into murderers, and vampire movie A Girl Walks Home at Night, premiering at Sundance.
Wood is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and Stone Meyer. Goddard is repped by Resolution and United Agents. Jones is repped by Kate Staddon at Curtis Brown Group.
Wood is producing the horror story with SpectreVision partners Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller.
SpectreVision, the horror-thriller label run by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller, is moving forward with its latest project, The Boy.
Craig Macneill is directing the movie from a screenplay by him and Clay McLeod Chapman, who created the characters in his novel Miss Corpus. Shooting will begin February 17 in Medellin, Colombia.
The Boy is the first movie of a planned trilogy that will track the childhood of a future serial killer. The films will explore the killer at the ages of 9, 14, and 18, culminating with him becoming an iconic mass murderer.
It is based on the short film Henley, which premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and was directed and written by Macneill and Chapman, respectively.
Jared Breeze will play the lead role of Henley. The eight-year old actor is a SpectreVision find as he made his acting debut in Cooties, the company’s horror comedy, which premieres on Sunday at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
“Jared only had one line in Cooties,” says producer Daniel Noah, “but he made a huge impression on the set. The Boy is a very different kind of child horror film. It’s a probing character study into the undeveloped mind of a future madman. Jared’s tender complexity is just right to bring us into the life of this complicated young person,” he added.
Also cast in the movie is Aiden Lovekamp, whose credits include Cooties and Paranormal Activity 4.
SpectreVision’s Wood, Noah and Waller are producing, with the company teaming up with Chiller Films for the movie.
Breeze is repped by Coast to Coast Talent.
