After a nearly twenty year hiatus, The Night Flier director Mark Pavia returned to horror back in 2016 with Fender Bender, and he’s headed back to the genre with an adaptation of the novel Clare at 16, the first of a proposed six-book series from bestselling author Don Roff.
Pavia will write and direct the horror film.
“Clare at 16 tells the story of Clare Bleecker, a sixteen-year-old girl who attends catholic school. To the world, she appears to be a normal teenager, an animal lover, and devout vegan living with her grandparents, but like the town she lives in, Clare is more than she appears to be. Underneath her reserved appearance lives a sociopath with dissociative identity disorder — a serial killer.”
The project will be produced through Dead Rabbit Films. David Chackler (Co-Producer of John Carpenter’s “Village of the Damned” and Tom Holland’s “Twisted Tales” series), and Dave Sereny will serve as Executive Producers on the film, with Dennis DeFrehn attached to produce. Nadia Redler (“Fear X” and “Fender Bender”) will also serve as an executive producer.
Academy award-winning film composer Joe Renzetti (“Childs Play”, “The Buddy Holly Story,” “Fatso”) will serve as music composer. Also attached is Academy Award nominated costume designer Marilyn Vance (“Pretty Woman”, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”, “Rocketeer”), who’s best known for creating some of the most iconic looks for characters in more than 60 American feature films and television series.
