The film is set to start production next year. From the official synopsis, just a snippet:

“It’s 1982 in the quaint town of Grove Hill, Ohio, and things are more lively than usual as the annual fall festival comes to town. Local outcast Julien Cummings has finally found his calling as the toothless boy-giant in the carnival’s main event, Dr. Death’s Side Show Spook House Spectacular. Unfortunately for Julien, some of the people of Grove Hill have different plans for him on opening night of the big event. But Dr. Death is not your average freak show ring leader and he doesn’t take kindly to those who hurt one of his own.”
