Dystopic Fever Dream BOY KILLS WORLD Casts Andrew Koji

Snake Eyes and Warrior star Andrew Koji joins the ensemble cast for the action-fantasy film Boy Kills World, from first-time feature director Moritz Mohr. Sam Raimi and Roy Lee are on board to produce, with Bill Skarsgard (It, Hemlock Grove), Jessica Rothe (replacing Samara Weaving, who had to exit the project due to scheduling conflicts), Isaiah Mustafa (It: Chapter Two, Shadowhunters) and Yayan Ruhian (The Raid, Beyond Skyline) also starring.

Described as a one-of-a-kind action spectacle, the wittily-titled Boy Kills World is set in a dystopian fever-dream reality and follows a boy who deaf and mute, and who possesses a vibrant imagination. When his family is brutally murdered, he escapes to the jungle and is taken in by a mysterious shaman who teaches him to repress his childish imagination, and trains him to become an instrument of death.

Arend Remmers pens the script with Tyler Burton Smith, from a story co-created by Remmers and Mohr. Production on the action flick is due to begin early this year.
