After 20 years, director Richard Stanley is returning to feature filmmaking. The mind behind ‘Hardware’ and ‘Dust Devil’ returns to direct an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s ‘Color Out Of Space.’ The script is co-written by Stanley and Scarlett Amaris.
The film starts principal photography next month and is being produced by Elijah Wood and Lisa Whalen’s SpectreVision, who were responsible for this year’s hit, ‘Mandy.’ The film will star actors Nicolas Cage, Joely Richardson, Tommy Chong, Elliot Knight, Julian Hilliard, and Q’Orianka Kilcher. Here’s a description of the film (via Dread Central):
“(Color Out Of Space) centers on a family who moves to a remote farmstead in rural New England to escape the hustle of the 21st century when a meteorite crashes into their front yard, resulting in the land and the properties of space-time being infected with a strange, otherworldly color.
“To their horror, the family discovers that this alien force is gradually mutating every life form that it touches.“
