Julian Morris (“Young Arthur”) will star in the Focus Features thriller “Living the Lie,” the feature writing and directing debut of Jeff Wadlow.
Production is under way.
Doug Liman produces the pic, the story of a prep school refugee attending his last-strike school. He sends out an email hoax about a serial killer terrorizing the area. When students begin to disappear, he must discover if his lie has come true.
“Living the Lie” was the winning entry in the 2002 Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival, which provided Wadlow a $1 million production budget through Liman’s Hypnotic and Universal Pictures’ Focus.
Morris stars in the upcoming “Whirlygirl,” directed by Jim Wilson.
