Production is underway in Toronto on Steven Kostanski’s sci-fi comedy PG (Psycho Goreman).

Produced by Shannon Hanmer and Stuart F. Andrews, and coproduced by TIFF’s Midnight Madness programmer Peter Kuplowsky, the feature subverts late 80s and 90s Saturday morning cartoons with the story of two siblings who resurrect and adopt an evil alien who they call Psycho Goreman.

The project is written and directed by Kostanski, one of five leads of production company Astron-6. This will be Kostanski’s second time helming a feature film. He directed Astron-6′s Manborg in 2011.

More recently Kostanski co-directed throwback thriller The Void with Jeremy Gillespie, while Astron-6′s latest short film Chowboys: An American Folktale is set to screen at the Sundance in the Midnight Shorts program. Kostanski has also worked as a special effects artists for Toronto productions, including Star Trek: DiscoveryIt and Crimson Peak.
