The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Sung Kang will be making his directorial debut with low-budget horror-comedy Shaky Shivers.
The film focuses on two ice-cream shop employees stranded at an abandoned camp, where a book of magical spells puts them in contact with a number of classic movie creatures.
Speaking with THR, Sung Kang said:
I didn’t want to do something really heavy. I think a lot of people expected, because of my association to these big blockbuster action movies, that I would do some action film.
The film stars Brooke Markham and VyVy Nguyen, with the script written by Aaron Strongoni and Andrew McAllister. Jackrabbit Media and Cyfuno Ventures are co-repping domestic sales for the film at the American Film Market (AFM), with Jackrabbit handling international sales. Kang serves as producer, under his Raison D’etre banner, alongside Luci Kim (Luka Productions) and Jean Shim (Aerie On Elms). Nina Yang Bongiovi (AUM) serves as executive producer.
