Pic will lense this summer. Location is yet to be determined.

"This film is so much a one-man show," Hafstrom told Daily Variety. "It’s quite a contained drama. It is a horror film if you want to put a label on it, but the way I see it, it’s much more an inner-journey of this character."

Mr. Hafstrom’s films include "Derailed" and "Ondskan." You know Scott & Larry from "Man on the Moon," "Problem Child," and "Ed Wood," among others.
