ComingSoon.net got the opportunity to chat with Come Play writer/director Jacob Chase to discuss his work bringing his short story Larry to life and working with stars Gillian Jacobs (Community, Visions) and John Gallagher Jr. (10 Cloverfield Lane, The Belko Experiment). Our interview can be viewed in the player below!

The story of Come Play, a feature length adaptation of Chase’s horror short Larry, focuses on Oliver, a lonely young boy who feels different from everyone else. Desperate for a friend, he seeks solace and refuge in his ever-present cell phone and tablet. When a mysterious creature uses Oliver’s devices against him to break into our world, Oliver’s parents (Gillian Jacobs and John Gallagher Jr.) must fight to save their son from the monster beyond the screen.

Robertson has several movies under his belt, having appeared recently in Juliet, Naked alongside Rose Byrne (Peter Rabbit) and Ethan Hawke (24 Hours to Live). He is next set to appear alongside Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Infinity War) and Adam Driver (BlacKkKlansman) in an untitled Noah Baumbach Project.

Amblin Partners acquired the rights to turn writer-director Jacob Chase’s horror short, Larry, into a feature-length film back in February of this year. The Picture Company partners Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman produced the project, which is written and directed by Chase.
