Filmmaker Caillou Pettis and his production company, Newryst Studios, are working on the production of his upcoming psychological horror film, Omnicron. As we reported recently, the Canadian producer, director, YouTuber, and part time film reviewer is currently assembling a cast and crew for his latest project.
Newryst Studios contacted us recently about about a change in creative direction on the project. Read on for the details!
A young cognitive science student enlists the aid of a paranormal psychologist and a young man with a century old secret to ease her sleep paralysis of the Omnicron, a demon conspiracy as old as time.
Caillou Pettis will star in, produce, and direct as well as co-star alongside Kyle Van Aswegen. Actor/Director Paul Roberts, known for his work on My Mother’s Eyes (2015), American Crime (2015) and Cold Comfort (2017), has joined the team in a production role.
Joshua Clay was originally slated to write the screenplay, but Newryst has decided to move in a different direction. According to their recent announcement:
“Due to creative differences, Joshua Clay’s original script for Omnicron will no longer be used. Instead, director Pettis will be writing the new script starting immediately.” – Newryst Studios
Hopefully this change won’t cause too much of a delay. The project is currently still slated for a 2019 release.
We’ll bring you more information about Omnicron as it becomes available. In the meantime, you can check out the production on Facebook and follow Caillou Pettis on Twitter.
