Sam Raimi is currently on everyone’s radar for his work on the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel. It’s his first return to direct a feature film since 2013’s Oz the Great and Powerful. In the meantime, he’s been working on smaller projects, such as directing episodes of Rake and Ash vs. Evil Dead. He’s also been working a lot as a producer on various projects. He has focused on the horror genre quite a bit throughout his career. We can exclusively share that he is currently also working on a film titled Boy Kills World. Moritz Mohr takes on directing duties, and we can also share that it already has a talent attached with Bill Skarsgård.
The film will follow the story of a man named Boy, whose parents are guerrilla fighters. His loving sister Mina kept him safe in their war-torn country. Tragically, their country’s tyrant, Hilda Van Der Koy, killed his entire family. Seeking revenge, Boy seeks help from a Shaman, who’ll train him in various ways of fighting. Viewers will join Boy on his journey to confronting the person who killed his parents and the grueling training by the shaman.
Skarsgård signed on to appear in John Wick: Chapter 4 and has seen quite a resurgence since he joined 2017’s It. His experience with darker roles is very fitting for this dark story about a kid taking vengeance for the death of his family. Raimi has started venturing out with his role as producer and shows that he continues to explore new avenues even if Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will return him to his horror roots.
