Slime is described as “a classic monster movie decked out in fashion-forward video game skins that are wickedly satirical, scary as hell and trippy AF.”
The film marks the feature directorial debut by animator Jeron Braxton (“Baby Demon”). Brian Ash (“The Boondocks“) wrote the script and serves as executive producer.
About the animated feature: “In a not-too-distant, but all-too-dystopian future, Muna, an optimistic, but broke young woman, signs up for a paid medical trial. Hope turns to horror when she is unknowingly injected with a foreign creature’s slime and begins to have visions she does not understand and unleash destructive powers she cannot control. Hunted and desperate, Muna kidnaps Glenn (Mescudi), a lab worker from the mega-corporation who injected her. Together, they go on a terrifying odyssey in search of refuge and a cure. But is it already too late to stop her from evolving into a monster, a post-human savior, or something in between?”
“The concept for Slime is to build a sonic/visual experience that marries Braxton’s distinct style with a trippy, elevating original soundtrack, according to the release,” Deadline reports.
“I’m always looking for what’s new and always trying to elevate what we know about music, film, TV and animation. Jeron is a powerhouse creative at the forefront of culture, pushing boundaries with everything he does. I’m grateful to have him on the team and am ready to see him bring Slime to life. Mad Solar, we here,” Mescudi told the outlet.
Slime is produced under Mescudi’s production banner Mad Solar alongside Hammerstone Studios and Capstone Global.
Mescudi, Karina Manashil, Dennis Cummings, Aaron Bergman, Alex Lebovici and Jon Oakes produce Slime. Christian Mercuri, Courtney Chenn, Waylin Lin and Brian Ash executive produce.
