Pedro Pascal, Jay Ellis, Dominique Thorne, Ben Mendelsohn, Jack Champion, Angus Cloud, Keir Gilchrist, and Michelle Farrah Huang have been cast in Freaky Tales.
The immersive film comes from Captain Marvel helmers Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden for their eOne and Macro co-produced pic Freaky Tales.
Set in Oakland in 1987, Freaky Tales is a wholly original, immersive film inspired by Ryan’s experience growing up in the bay. The film is comprised of four interconnected stories each featuring distinct characters, real life locations and noteworthy historical events (some real, some imagined).
Grammy-winner Raphael Saadiq (“Mudbound“), an Oakland native, will compose the film’s music. Fellow west coast musician Too $hort is also part of the film’s producing team.
The film will be financed by eOne with the studio’s Jillian Share, Jen Gorton, and Chanel Vidal overseeing the film’s production with Share and Gorton executive producing. MACRO Film Studios’ Jelani Johnson and Poppy Hanks will serve as producers and Charles D. King and James F. Lopez as executive producers. Also executive producing are Too $hort and his manager David Weintraub, while Grammy-winning Oakland native Raphael Saadiq is overseeing the film’s music.
