Boy is the first movie of a planned trilogy that will track the childhood of a future serial killer. The films will explore the killer at the ages of 9, 14 and 18, culminating with him becoming an iconic mass murderer. Jared Breeze is playing the boy.

Craig Macneill is directing the movie from a screenplay by him and Clay McLeod Chapman, who created the characters in his novel Miss Corpus. Shooting began Feb. 17 in Medellin, Colombia. Chiller Films is involved in the production with SpectreVision.

Wilson's role is described as an enigmatic stranger who intrigues the young boy. Morse will play the boy's father and owner of a motel.

Vogel (Under the Dome) and Robinson (Homeland) are playing a married couple who, along with their son, spend the night at the motel while Sage (Boardwalk Empire) is the sheriff of the rural town where the story takes place.
