In recent news, ANNABELLE director John Leonetti announced that his new project WISH UPON is currently underway with principal photography commencing early November in Toronto. The film will be the first to come out of Broad Green Entertainment which will will be releasing BAD SANTA 2 and STEP SISTERS.
The synopsis of the film is as follows: When 16-year-old misfit Claire finds a magic box that promises a chance at the life she’s always wanted, she never could have guessed that each wish would demand a deadly payment.
The casting for WISH UPON had already been predetermined and in recent news, THE MAZE RUNNERS, Ki Hong Lee has joined the pretty stellar cast. Joey King (THE CONJURING), Sherilyn Fenn, Alice Lee (SON OF ZORN), Elisabeth Rohn (JOY) and Ryan Phillippe (CRUEL INTENTIONS) are all set to star in the film. Phillippe will play the father of the 17 year- old protagonist which will be played by King.
The script of the film scribed by Barbara Marshall (VIRAL) was originally found on the Black List. The BL is where filmmakers find great material and vice versa. Screenwriters can host their scripts in hopes that it will catch the eye of a budding director.
