The power of a mere box has captivated audiences in many ways throughout our genre. Tampering with one can summon cenobites with such sights to show you, trigger repeating yourself asking “What’s in the box,” or a seemingly harmless mogwai that comes with severe consequences if you break its care-taking rules!
WISH UPON follows 16-year-old misfit Clare (King) who finds a magic box that promises a chance at the life she’s always wanted. However, each wish comes with a deadly payment. Park plays one of Clare’s best friends, Meredith McNarin.
Sydney Park (The Walking Dead, Baby Daddy) will join the cast that includes Shannon Purser (STRANGER THINGS), Ryan Phillippe (Breach, Stop-Loss, Shooter) Joey King (THE CONJURING) and Alice Lee (FOREIGN BODIES)
The Broad Green Pictures’ (NEON DEMON, BAD SANTA 2) project is currently in pre-production. Sherryl Clark of Busted Shark Productions (VIRAL, CLOVERFIELD) is producing the film. ANNABELLE’s John Leonetti is slated to direct and scribe Barbara Marshall (screenplay VIRAL).
So what sinister events can we look forward to with WISH UPON? We will have to wait and find out but the cast keeps growing and this is one film we are certainly not containing our excitement for!
