More from Deadline

Big Baby tells the story of Adam Lewis (Scott), a successful horror screenwriter struggling for inspiration for his latest script. After a graphic and realistic nightmare of a hulking man dressed in a baby mask and onesie who axe murders his girlfriend Kate (Fox) in the middle of the night, Adam gets the inspiration he needs for his new screenplay. Excited about the direction his story is taking, he starts losing himself in his script. Things are better than ever for Adam and Kate until “Big Baby” (Marcinowski) starts appearing in real life and tormenting and killing victims fueled by his own revenge. Characters from Adam’s script begin to pay him visits pleading for their lives, and he quickly realizes he holds their fate in his hands. Power and fear completely consume Adam until his girlfriend Kate is terrified of the man she once loved.

One and Fox are producing under their OneFox banner, with Bono, Tyler Connolly (Going the Distance), Terry Poor, and Wendy and Mark Berry joining Cher as EPs.

Said One, “My goal for Big Baby was to turn the slasher genre inside out…to craft a meta script about creation and those creations coming to life. It’s a terrifying premise centered around a writer desperately trying to control the narrative of his script and his life, which of course proves to be an impossible task with deadly consequences.”

Perhaps best known for starring opposite Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini on Netflix’s Dead to Me, Scott can currently be seen in Max’s The Girls on the Bus. Previously, he’s also been seen on Goliath, 13 Reasons Why and This Is Us, among other series. Feature credits include Dead for a Dollar, Dark Was the Night, and Blair Witch.

A veteran of the horror genre, Fox has been seen in titles like Bury the Bride and Allegoria, both from Spider One, and will next appear in Terrifier 3.

Scott is represented by Sweeney Entertainment, Innovative Artists, and Felker Toczek Suddleson; Fox by Webster Talent; and One by 33 and West.
