Benni Diez

Horror comedy will shoot this October.

Director and visual effect whiz Benni Diez has enlisted Matt O’Leary, Jessica Cook, Peter Stormare and Lance Henriksen for his creature feature horror comedy ‘Stung,’ reports Sceen Daily.

The official synopsis for the Adam Aresty-penned script is as follows:

“Mrs. Perch, an elderly, wealthy lady from rural America, is throwing a fancy garden party at her remote country villa. Same procedure as every year – except this time her illegally imported plant fertilizer seeps into the ground. Subsequently, a local species of killer wasps that usually lay their eggs into other insects mutates into 7 ft tall predators. And the celebrating upper class company provides just the right kind of prey.

It’s up to Paul and Julia, the two catering staffers, to stop the creatures, fight for their lives, and incidentally getting their stumbling romance in order.”

Rat Pack Filmproduction and XYZ Films are co-producing the project with filming set to begin late October in Berlin.
