John McNaughton, the helmer behind the controversial cult classic 1986 horror film Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and the infamous 2001 thriller Wild Things, has signed on to direct his next movie, breaking his eleven year sabbatical from cinema.
Written by Stephen Lancelloti, the movie follows a married couple (Shannon & Morton) with medical backgrounds and a sick son (Charlie Tahan) who lives secluded in a controlled environment until a young girl (Natasha Calis) moves in next door and gives him hope of a better life. As the teens grow closer, the tight-knit world his over-protective mother has created begins to unravel.
