According to a new report from Variety, AEW star Chris Jericho is teaming up with author and filmmaker Jay Bonansinga for a new psychological thriller “Self Storage.” Jericho will also have a key supporting role in the film.
Variety also notes the film is based on Bonansinga’s 2016 novel with the same name.
Per the report, the synopsis of the film will center around a heroin-addicted father and his son who accidentally lock themselves inside a self-storage unit. Surviving will depend on a battle with demons both real and manufactured by drug withdrawal.
The lead character named John Fitzgerald is scheduled to be played by Lew Temple (“The Walking Dead,” “The Devil’s Rejects”). Bonansinga, who previously directed the short “City of Men” (1988) and feature “Stash” (2007), will direct from his own script.
“Self Storage” will be executive produced by Jericho’s Babyface Assassin Productions and alongside Bonansinga, Jeff Siegel for Delirium Tremens, and Jason Cherubini for Dawn’s Light.
