Elric Kane is making his directorial debut with The Dead Thing, a twist on the Invisible Man, in which an affair leads to a dark obsession.

 

 

The Dead Thing is described by the site as being  “Billed as a neo-realist take on an Invisible Man story and a modern urban legend for the online dating era, the film follows a young woman (Hunt) who, lost in a string of meaningless hookups, falls in love with a sensitive and charismatic man (Petersen) who she soon discovers harbors a dark secret that turns their affair into a twisted obsession.”
 

Blu Hunt (The New Mutants), John Karna (Lady Bird),  Ben Smith-Petersen (Mad Max: Fury Road), and Katherine Hughes (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) star in the film.

 

Deadline states, “Billed as a neo-realist take on an Invisible Man story and a modern urban legend for the online dating era, the film follows a young woman (Hunt) who, lost in a string of meaningless hookups, falls in love with a sensitive and charismatic man (Petersen) who she soon discovers harbors a dark secret that turns their affair into a twisted obsession.”

 

Kane wrote the script with Webb Wilcoxen (The Frontier). Producers for The Dead Thing include Monte Yazzie and Matt Mercer (Bliss, Contracted), with Rebekah McKendry (Glorious) on board as executive producer.
