Daniel Roby To Direct Piecemeal

Horror film about teen's bad dreams

Daniel Roby has signed on to direct the horror movie, Piecemeal, for Zone Film.

Written by Jeff Welch, the movie revolves around a teenager who suffers from recurring nightmares in which he lives the life of a brutally abused young man. Then, in the real world, he struggles to keep his rage in check.

Intriguing… the world of dreams is always a fertile area for filmmakers to tap, and this one sounds like it should fall firmly into the psychological horror category.

Roby, who will also produce, made a splash with his vampire flick, White Skin at the Toronto Film Festival, and will direct Piecemeal after he wraps the 70s-set Funkytown. That starts shooting in March.
