Mark Webber to star in Creature Feature, “WELCOME TO WILLITS” [UPDATED]News Samuel Zimmerman
The young actor, who shined in a supporting role in SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD and won acclaim for his directorial effort THE END OF LOVE (pictured above), will star and produce an upcoming monster movie set in the Northern Californian woods.
Titled WELCOME TO WILLITS, after an actual small town in California known as the “Gateway to the Redwoods,” the film will see Webber as a pot farmer, who along with other campers, encounter creatures. If it wasn’t clear by the lead being a pot farmer, expect comedy along the way, as well. Directors Trevor Ryan and Tim Ryan are helming. [Deadline]
UPDATE: For much more on WELCOME TO WILLITS, visit the film’s official site where you can see a snappy Proof-of-Concept teaser titled AFTER SUNDOWN. Mark Webber stars in the stylish, frenzied piece, as well, and should set the tone for what to expect from the feature. The full AFTER SUNDOWN, running seven minutes or so, should hit online this August.
