The cross genre feature will be the British independent production company’s second film following Panic Button.

Movie Mogul Ltd have announced that their new feature film Monster Project has gone into development.

Described as a “cross-genre” film, Monster Project follows six teenagers who undergo a harrowing transformation into monsters, imbued with various abilities and ailments, and are forced to go on the run, fighting for their survival.

Movie Mogul MD John Shackleton will write, direct and co-produce with Movie Mogul director of operations, Gareth I. Davies, and David Shillitoe; Mark Sandell executive produces.

Commenting on the film, Shackleton said: “It’s a real privilege for me to have the opportunity to work on something so unique and personal.

“Lurking beneath a hugely fantastical movie premise, anchored in reality, is a universal story surrounding a group of alienated teenagers. Remove another layer, and I’m working with characters, situations and more personal stories from my formative years. I’m hoping that this film will have a little something for everyone.”

Movie Mogul’s first feature, Panic Button, received its world premiere at last year’s FrightFest and was released on DVD in November 2011 by Showbox Media Group.
