Rainn Wilson, David Morse, Mike Vogel, Zuleikha Robinson and Bill Sage have been added to the cast of the SpectreVision production of “The Boy.”

SpectreVision partners Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah and Josh C. Waller are producing the serial-killer origin trilogy starring Jared Breeze of “Cooties.”

Principal photography launched Feb. 17 in Colombia, on the first movie, based on a short film “Henley,” which appeared in competition at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

The trilogy is aimed at tracking the childhood of a future serial killer, depicting the character at ages 9, 14 and 18 and ending with his transformation into a mass murderer.  “The Boy” is directed by Craig Macneill from a screenplay by Macneill and Clay McLeod Chapman, who created the characters in his novel “Miss Corpus.”

Wilson will portray an enigmatic stranger who intrigues and beguiles the young Ted Henley. Morse will portray John Henley, motel owner and father of the boy who will eventually grow to infamy.

Vogel and Robinson play a married couple, who along with their son (Aiden Lovekamp) spend the night at the Henley motel. Sage will portray the Sheriff of the rural town in which the Henleys reside.
