“The Big Bang Theory” star Johnny Galecki, Chloe Sevigny and Angelica Huston have come on board horror-comedy “Master Cleanse” for Bron Studios and Gilbert Films.
The film is scheduled to begin production in early July in Vancouver. XYZ Films will introduce “Cleanse” to to international buyers in Cannes with a pre-visualization of the project. WME Global arranged financing and is representing North American rights.
Producers are Jordan Horowitz for Gilbert Films, Aaron L. Gilbert for Bron Studios and Galecki for his Alcide Bava Pictures. The executive producers are Gary Gilbert, Todd Masters, Margot Hand and John Raymonds.
Bobby Miller is directing from his own script in which Galecki’s character decides to restart his life, joining a spiritual retreat designed to cleanse negative toxins from his body — only to discover the cleanse releases something far greater than toxins and traumatic experiences.
Miller is repped by WME. Galecki is repped by WME and Management 360.

“I Trapped the Devil” sounds like the title of a sermon or gospel song, but it’s a very literal-minded statement coming from the mouth of a leading character in writer-director Josh Lobo’s debut feature.
