The film, directed by John Leonetti (Anabelle) from a script written by Barbara Marshall, is being produced by Sherryl Clark of Busted Shark Productions. The story sees King play a 16-year-old misfit who finds a magic box that promises a chance at the life she’s always wanted — only to discover that each wish demands a deadly payment.
Mister Smith Entertainment will introduce the film, which is currently in preproduction, to buyers at this year’s AFM, which gets underway on Wednesday in Santa Monica.
