Nick Searcy Undergoes A “Metamorphosis”

Nick Searcy (“Justified,” “Moneyball”) has joined the cast of indie dramatic thriller “Metamorphosis” for Isotropic Films says Variety.

Inspired by Franz Kafka’s literary classic, the story follows a 17-year-old who wakes up one morning to an inexplicable illness that has transformed him into a hideous, human-sized cockroach.

His parents come home to discover him afraid and hiding from his new form and are now faced with the decision of accepting a monster in their suburban home or exterminating their own son.

Shooting aims to begin in Los Angeles in late July with David Yohe directing from a script he co-wrote with Jason Goldberg. Goldberg, Jeff Laub, Nicole Castro and Wade Miller are producing.
