Willy’s Wonderland writer GO Parsons wrote Beast of Bower Boulevard, a comic about a rampaging robotic dinosaur built by the military.
GO Parsons, the writer behind the Nicolas Cage-directed horror comedy Willy’s WonderlandHe’s true to his old tricks. Parsons wants to give automated animals another chance Beast from Bower Boulevard, a three-part digital comic premiering this week. Originally funded on Kickstarter, Beast from Bower Boulevard takes place in a remote ski resort where a sheriff’s deputy and his family investigate after all has gone quiet. When they reach their destination, they find that the urban area is under attack by a robotic dinosaur built by the military!
Beast from Bower Boulevard exudes 70s and 80s vibes with a dash of absurdity. Originally written as a screenplay, Parsons converted the screenplay after working with the publisher American mythology on the Willy’s Wonderland Comics. While Parsons is excited about the Beast of Bower Boulevard storming the comics side, he doesn’t rule out a live-action adaptation if a studio shows interest.
“We wanted it to look like this thing was found 40 years ago.” Parsons told The Hollywood Reporter.
In Willy’s WonderlandNicolas Cage plays a silent drifter who is lured into taking a janitor’s job at the now-condemned Willy’s Wonderland, but his mundane task suddenly becomes a bitter struggle for survival against wave after wave of demonic animatronics.
Previously in conversation with Weekly entertainmentsaid director Kevin Lewis Willy’s Wonderland Is “A fun, crazy, crazy roller coaster movie. Willy’s Wonderland is like a retro throwback to the 80’s. I grew up watching Sam Raimi and Evil Dead and such funny 80’s horror and action horror movies like that. It was – and I really mean it – made by a fanboy for all fanboys and girls. A producer friend, Jeremy Davis, brought me the project and we both fell in love with it. We worked on it, we got Nic on our side, he really fell in love with the project and saw our vision of it and we got it off the ground. Nic was a fantastic partner in this film. It’s vintage nic. He just brings so much to this film. I think people will really like it.” Lewis added that they shot the film in Atlanta in early 2020 and were able to wrap it up just weeks before many major film productions were shut down by the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s also possible that we haven’t seen the last of the demonic animatronics, as Lewis implied “If the film gods decide, I think there are many more adventures for Willy and his gang to come.”
While Cage is certainly the star of this very bizarre film, he’s not alone in battling the forces of animatronic evil. join him Willy’s Wonderland include Terayle Hill, Beth Grant, Caylee Cowan, Chris Schmidt Jr., Emily Tosta, Grant Cramer, Jonathan Mercedes, Ric Reitz, David Sheftell, Christian Delgrosso, Chris Warner and Taylor Towery.
The Beast from Bower Boulevard is available now from American Mythology.
