‘No Such Thing’ Horror Project Set From ‘Juveniles’ Producers

Juveniles” producers Chris Miller and James Burke are teaming on horror thriller “No Such Thing” with John Hulme making his feature film directing debut, Variety has learned exclusively.

Casting is under way for a second quarter shoot. Radiant Films Intl. has launched sales at the American Film Market.

Hulme directed HBO’s “Unknown Soldier: Searching for A Father.” His script for “No Such Thing” centers on a father who tries to protect his young son from the same child-abducting boogeyman that pursued him as a child.

Producers hold U.S. rights to “No Such Thing,” which will be shot for under $10 million. Miller told Variety that Hulme’s story taps into the myth of a child-stealing monster that permeates multiple cultures.

“The script has a lot of resonance — and we are going to show the monster,” he added.

Juveniles,” an action thriller starring Beau Knapp and Stephen Moyer, made its market debut at AFM with Radiant handling foreign sales and showing footage. CAA represents North American rights on the film, which is in post-production and directed by Nico Sabenorio from his own screenplay.

“Juveniles,” shot in a remote area of Los Angeles County north of Hanson Dam in 18 days, centers on a student out to avenge his father’s death at the hands of a local crime lord. Martin Henderson, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Nick Eversman and Jessica Rothe also star.

Besides Miller and Burke, “Juveniles” was also produced by Elliot Lewis Rosenblatt and Scott Disharoon.
