Samuel Gonzalez Jr. will write and direct neo-horror film Little Darling. Pic sees a small-town junkyard wrecker stumbling upon Dean’s cursed death car. His obsession to rebuild it takes him on a mind-bending odyssey that unleashes the true horror behind the forgotten mystery.
Says Gonzalez Jr, “I’m putting the camera deep in engine oil and blood intending to resurrect the Hollywood legend and the ‘ ‘curse of little bastard” with a grounded 90’s based horror ride straight to hell and back.”
Michael De Roker and Lalit Bhatnagar are producing.
Gonzalez, co-director of the upcoming horror film The Retaliators, is represented by Melanie Cook of Ziffren Brittenham LLP.
Little Darling will shoot Spring 2022.
