Award-winning director and artist Nicholas Verso (Boys in the Trees, The Last Time I Saw Richard) has signed on to direct the high concept horror feature film The Ice Cream Man, it was announced today by Covert Media’s CEO Paul Hanson (Ophelia, Naked). Hanson is producing The Ice Cream Man alongside Broken Road Productions’ Todd Garner (True Memoirs of an International Assassin, Knight and Day) and Ryan Lewis (Naked, The Ballad of Lefty Brown).

The Ice Cream Man was written by Justin Powell (Off SeasonSecret Admirer) and David Charbonier (Off SeasonSecret Admirer). The film follows two brothers who are terrorized by a sinister being. Currently in pre-production, the film is the next production under the two-year first look deal announced between Covert and Broken Road. The Ice Cream Man is being fully financed by Covert Media, which will handle worldwide sales on the film.

Covert’s Elissa Friedman (Ophelia, The Secret), Media Content Capital’s Sasha Shapiro (Fading Gigolo, Ophelia) and Anton Lessine (Fading Gigolo, Fury), and Broken Road’s Sean Robins (Cadaver, Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse) serve as executive producers.

“Nick is a true visionary when it comes to crafting genre films, handsomely evidenced by the awards and acclaim received in recent years,” commented Hanson. “He is a proven, unique voice and we are thrilled that Justin and David’s outstanding, clever, and terrifying script is in a master’s hands.”

“Justin and David are two exciting new horror voices, we were excited to discover, who’ve crafted a truly exciting and utterly creepy world to explore. With his innate talent as a director, Nick has provided the perfect vision to bring this world to life,” commented Lewis. “When we’re done with this film, parents will think twice before letting their kids chase after that familiar jingle when Summer comes around again.”
