Nick Searcy to make ‘Metamorphosis’

'Justified' star boards Kafka-inspired dramatic thriller inspired

Nick Searcy (“Justified”) has joined the cast of indie drama thriller “Metamorphosis,” a dramatic thriller inspired by Franz Kafka’s literary classic.

Isotropic Films is planning to begin production in Los Angeles in late July with David Yohe directing from a script he co-wrote with Jason Goldberg. Jeff Laub, Nicole Castro and Wade Miller are producing with Goldberg, Yohe and Thom Spitler exec producing.

“We are making a film with a very direct social message,” Yohe said. “It’s a metaphor for being different, change, and most importantly how fear can make us do harmful things to others and to ourselves.”

Story focuses on a 17-year-old who wakes up one morning to an inexplicable illness that transforms him into the unimaginable — a hideous, human-sized cockroach. His parents come home to discover him afraid and hiding from his new form and are now faced with the decision of accepting a monster in their suburban home or exterminating their own son.

Searcy will be seen next in “Moneyball.”
