Halloween Kills isn’t the only Blumhouse production that’s going to be released through the Peacock streaming service. Collider reports that the company has now announced that the untitled horror film that was formerly known as Whistler Camp, the project that marks the feature directorial debut of Penny Dreadful creator John Logan and will star Kevin Bacon, is also heading to Peacock.
With the reveal of that release strategy also comes the announcement of six more cast members. Joining the previously announced Bacon, Theo Germaine (The Politician), Carrie Preston (The Good Fight), and Anna Chlumsky (My Girl) are Quei Tann (Dear White People), Austin Crute (Honk for Jesus), Anna Lore (Doom Patrol), Monique Kim (What/If), Cooper Koch (Swallowed), and Darwin del Fabro (Ligações Perigosas).
Character and plot details are being kept under wraps. All we know about the film formerly known as Whistler Camp is that it’s a horror film and
an LGBTQIA+ empowerment story set at a gay conversion camp.
Blumhouse Productions’ Jason Blum and Michael Aguilar are producing the movie. Ryan Turek is the creative executive overseeing the film for Blumhouse. Bacon is executive producing the film alongside Scott Turner Schofield.
In addition to creating Penny Dreadful, Logan won a Tony for his play Red, wrote the book for the musical Moulin Rouge, got to write two James Bond films (Skyfall and Spectre), and earned Academy Award nominations for his screenwriting work on Gladiator, The Aviator, and Hugo.
Halloween Kills is set to reach theatres and Peacock on October 15th. Now that we know how Whistler Camp is going to be released, and we know the names of ten cast members, hopefully they’ll announce a new title for the project so we won’t have to keep calling it Whistler Camp. We’ll keep you updated as it continues to move forward.
