David R. Ellis has been tapped by Mark Ordesky to direct “Humpty Dumpty.”
The 3-D sci-fi horror pic is about a half-human, half-alien creature who embarks on a murderous rampage after his alien mother is abused by two rednecks in the Deep South.
Billy Majestic is writing the script.
Ordesky is producing through his recently-launched Amber Entertainment shingle along with Suzanne de Passe and Madison Jones of iDream and Darry Welch from Instinctive Film. Fabienne Villette is co-producing.
U.K. sales and finance entity Intandem Films is exec producing and handling worldwide sales on the pic, which is slated to go into production in September.
