The Motorcycle Boy Productions and Greendale Productions horror-thriller starring Gary Busey, James Clayton and Chelah Horsdal will be in production in the city from April 13-20.

Rusty Nixon directs Candiland from his adapted screenplay based on Elizabeth Engstrom’s novel of the same name about a pair of lovers who isolate themselves in a bizarre heightened existence experiment.

Marc Petey and Marena Dix produce and James Clayton, Blaine Anderson and Roseanne Milliken are the executive producers.

The film is being shot in two blocks, nine weeks apart, to allow Clayton and Horsdal (pictured) the time needed for a dramatic weight loss as as their characters become emaciated after a year of isolation.
