Actress Gillian Jacobs has been set to star in the upcoming Amblin horror film, LARRY.
The film is from writer-director Jacob Chase. The film also stars young Azhy Robertson in a key role.
The story tells of a troubled young boy (Robertson) and his family who become the target of a monster that materialized through electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets. The project is based on Chase’s horror short and harkens back to early Amblin movies like the family under siege in Poltergeist as well as the more recent Mama, another horror short adapted into a feature film.
Filming is set to begin on October 2nd in Toronto, Canada.
Jacobs most recent role was in Judd Apatow’s Netflix series, Love.
