    From Bloody Disgusting:

    Gunpowder & Sky has partnered with Brightlight Pictures to produce Summer of ‘84, which hails from the directors of the post-apocalyptic horror Turbo Kid!

    The horror-thriller is set in 1984 and centers on 15-year-old neighborhood conspiracy theorist Davey Armstrong who suspects his police officer neighbor might be the serial killer all over the local news. He and his three best friends begin an investigation that soon puts them in danger.

    François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell of RKSS (Roadkill Superstar), known for 2015’s Turbo Kid, will direct the film that is set to go into production this July for an end-of-year release date.

    Shawn Williamson, CEO of Brightlight Pictures, and Jameson Parker are producing the film.

    Matt Leslie co-produced and wrote alongside writing partner Stephen J. Smith. Their screenplay was featured on the 2016 ‘Blood List’ selection of the best dark genre screenplays voted on by industry professionals.

    Summer Of ‘84 taps into the curiosity we all had as kids about what goes on behind closed doors,” Smith said.

    “How could we not bet on a writer associated with Straight Outta Compton and the directors of Turbo Kid to tell a twisted tale about a peaceful community where a serial killer threatens to shatter the suburban dream,” Van Toffler, CEO and co-founder of Gunpowder & Sky, said.

    “It’s a bold, unexpected story told by breakthrough filmmakers, and it’s exactly the kind of novel film we want to make at Gunpowder & Sky.”

    Synopsis:
    Growing up on a quiet cul-de-sac in Ipswich, Massachusetts, Davey’s desperate to believe there’s more to life than what he sees from his bedroom window. For him, every tabloid cover is a peek into the world as it really is, as it really must be past the borders of the humdrum neighborhood where he and his best friends Eats, Farraday. and Woody have grown up. Sure they spend their summers playing nighttime flashlight tag (“Manhunt”), riding their BMX bikes all over town, and spying on the hot, sometimes topless chick next door, Nikki… but Davey thirsts for more. As their investigation heats up, Davey and his best buds soon discover Mr. Mackey is on to them, and their suspicions quickly become all too real.

    I actually just found out that the music in the trailer wasn't Le Matos. They're still composing the film, but due to time restraints, it wasn't their music during the trailer.
