In the horror Zone, 'Piecemeal' isn't a dream


Zone Film is delivering a slice of horror with Jeff Welch's "Piecemeal."

Zone's Daniel Roby and TCB Film's Simon Trottier will produce the tale of a teen who struggles to control his rage while living the life of a brutally abused young man in recurring nightmares.

Roby is set to direct "Piecemeal" next fall after helming Remstar Prods.' 1970s-era saga "Funkytown" in March. Seville Pictures will distribute the film in the U.K. and Canada.

All the principals are well versed in genre films. The ICM/Gotham Group-repped Welch has penned sci-fi projects in development at Universal ("Zooport") and Warner Bros. ("Human Nature").

The ICM-repped Roby scored the Toronto International Film Festival's best Canadian debut feature award for his Zone-produced vampire thriller "White Skin." Trottier's recent Toronto thriller "Martyrs" helped land director Pascal Laugier a gig helming Dimension's next "Hellraiser" film. (partialdiff)
