A third movie with Boy in the title? Why not, I guess?
Prometheus fav Noomi Rapace will star in the science-fiction thriller with Danish helmer Jonas Arnby (When Animals Dream) on board, Variety reports out of Cannes.
Mattson Tomlin’s script for Boy, which was named to the 2015 Black List, “Centers on a teenage boy who is born with special abilities and spends his childhood switching names and cities to keep his identity hidden. When his conservative, suburban neighborhood discovers the risk he poses and blames him for a mass, tragic event, he and his mother must flee from the authorities who are looking to destroy him and seek the trust and support of an underground rebellion group.”
It’s got a sort of “Frankenstein” vibe to it.
Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Ben Pugh and Leon Clarance are producing.
Clarance’s Motion Picture Capital will finance Boy, which will begin shooting in August. Executive producers include Arash Amel, Rory Aitken, Rian Cahill and Laure Vaysse.
Lotus Entertainment is launching international sales for Boy at the Cannes Film Festival.
