Levi Miller, pictured in Pan, is joining Olivia DeJonge (The Visit) in Undocumented director Chris Peckover’s Sydney suburbia-set thriller Safe Neighborhood about a babysitting gig that takes a terrifying turn, reports ScreenDaily out of the ongoing AFM market.
Miller will play a 12-year-old boy with a devious side, with DeJonge as a babysitter battling to protect her young charge in a home invasion with a surprising twist.
The film, which Peckover co-wrote with Zack Kahn, is due to shoot in Australia in January 2016.
“Safe Neighborhood is Home Alone meets Scream,” said producer Brett Thornquest of Australian Storm Vision Entertainment, which is producing the film alongside Los Angeles-based Best Medicine Productions.
“Chris and Zack have written a killer script and this film will be equally smart and stylish, scary and tense – a sure-fire white-knuckle ride that pushes the thriller genre in a whole new terrifying direction.
