Fair Haired Child is the title of William Malone's work for Showtime's Masters of Horror and lensing has begun in Vancouver this week.
Malone's been off the genre seen since the much maligned Feardotcom; I'd prefer to remember him for the visually stimulating and thoroughly nasty House on Haunted Hill remake.
In Child, a 13-year-old girl named Tara is kidnapped by a deranged couple and thrown in the basement with their son, Johnny. In the span of an evening Tara comes to strike up an amiable friendship with Johnny, however, he holds a dark secret.
In casting news (albeit a bit late, sorry), Fango has reported actress Lori Petty (Route 666, Point Break) will star in Child. Masters kicks off October 28th. A DVD release of all thirteen episodes, courtesy of Anchor Bay, will come in February of '06.
