Alex Wolff and Imogen Poots have been tapped to star in the crime drama from writer-director Joey Klein.
Castle in the Ground centers on a teenager who, after the untimely death of his mother, befriends his charismatic but troubled next-door neighbor and becomes embroiled in a world of addiction and violence just as the opioid epidemic takes hold of their small town.

Gordon, Tom Spriggs, Rob McGillivray, Ben Stranahan, George Stranahan, John Hansen, Mark Gingras and John Laing will executive produce.
Wolff is set to reprise his role in Sony’s Jumanji sequel, while Poots’ credits include 28 Weeks Later, Jane Eyre, A Late Quartet, Jimi: All Is by My Side, Greetings from Tim Buckley, Green Room, Frank & Lola, and the Showtime series, Roadies.
