FOR BROAD GREEN PICTURES.
Broad Green Pictures announced today that Joey King (The Conjuring, “Fargo”) has signed on to play the lead in the studio’s horror thriller Wish Upon, which will be directed by John Leonetti (Annabelle). The movie is being produced by Busted Shark Production’s Sherryl Clark (Viral, Cloverfield) and was written by Barbara Marshall (“The Listener”). Production is expected to begin in the fall.
When 16-year-old misfit Claire finds a magic box that promises a chance at the life she’s always wanted, she never could have guessed that each wish would demand a deadly payment.
“I was mesmerized by Joey’s performance on the set of The Conjuring,” said Leonetti. “I am looking forward to watching her bring Claire to life in Wish Upon.”
The deal was brokered on behalf of King by Brian Nosokoff at UTA, Dan Spilo, Industry Entertainment and Howard Fishman, HWHM+F.
