Jason Lapeyre (“I Declare War”) is set to direct “The Crawlers,” a film adaptation of acclaimed sci-fi author Philip K. Dick’s short story of the same name.
Kalen Egan and Travis Sentell are adapting the script which is set in the late 1960s and follows a young government land-surveyor visiting the small town of Boyle, Texas.
Following a trail of disturbing rumors from the town’s secretive population, he soon discovers that they aren’t the only residents of Boyle.
Contemporary visual artist Patricia Piccinini will design the creatures, with Emmy-winning makeup artist & creature designer Steve Johnson (“War of the Worlds”) on board to do the visual and creature effects along with his partner, filmmaker Robert L. Lucas.
Edward R. Pressman and the author’s daughter Isa Dick Hackett are producing.
