Finn Wolfhard has revealed he’s currently working on his feature-length directorial debut.
Speaking to NME, Wolfhard revealed the film will be a “horror-comedy-slasher movie that takes place at a camp,” but didn’t want to reveal any more details just yet.
The untitled project will be the first time Wolfhard has directed a feature length film, but he did write and direct Night Shifts – a short movie about a shop robbery that gets derailed – earlier this year.
It’s a busy time for Wolfhard. Not only did his band The Aubreys release their debut album ‘Karaoke Alone’ yesterday (November 5), but he’s got a starring role in Ghostbusters: Afterlife which hits cinemas November 18.
“I’m at the point where I’m very lucky to be doing things that I really like,” he said. “I’m proud of that and I hope people keep hiring me, but I’m having fun for sure.”
Speaking about how he balances being both an actor and a musician, Wolfhard told NME that “it’s two sides of the same coin”, before he revealed he was inspired by The Beatles’ movies Help! and A Hard Day’s Night when he was younger. “[I was like] ‘Oh my god, they’re acting and they’re in a band – that’s amazing!’”
Speaking about the new season of Stranger Things earlier this year, Wolfhard said: “Every season it gets darker. I will say [with] season three I was like, ‘This is the darkest season that there’ll ever be’ – exploding rats and everything. But really, season four so far… it’s the darkest season that’s ever been [made].
“Every year it gets amped-up; every year it gets funnier, darker and sadder – and everything. So I’m really excited for people to see it,” he added.
