Just last week we reported that Crispin Glover (Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, Back to the Future, River’s Edge, Willard) would be playing a psycho contract killer in Lucky Day. Now, he’s joining Ronen Rubinstein – who most recently appeared in the Freeform series “Dead of Summer” – in the independent horror movie Smiley Face Killers, scripted by Bret Easton Ellis, Variety reports. Ellis’ novels include, for those who don’t know, “American Psycho” and “Less Than Zero”.
The film is based on actual events and the conspiracy theories that have arisen on the internet as a result of serial deaths of young men that shared common characteristics.
Production has commenced across multiple states with Tim Hunter directing. What’s even cooler is that the film reteams Glover with Hunter, who directed him in River’s Edge.
Mia Serafino co-stars. Garrett Coffey, Amadeus Serafini, Australian pop star Cody Simpson, and Ashley Rickards round out the cast.
Braxton Pope is producing with David Wulf and Ellis. Jason Miller of Silver State Productions is executive producing.
