‘Nutcrackers’ will tell the story of four siblings who are experiencing a wide range of mental and emotional challenges. However, a series of unexpected events leads the siblings to a startling discovery. In the most unexpected circumstances, the quartet of siblings finds a nurturing haven in an improbable location. The group’s experiences in the safe haven set the siblings on a journey of self-discovery. The film is expected to be a heart-warming comedy-drama about a group of siblings. It draws inspiration from real life while telling an inspiring tale of a remarkable bonding experience.

Green is directing the project after exiting the upcoming horror movie ‘The Exorcist: Deceiver.’ The film is a sequel to 2023’s ‘The Exorcist: Believer,’ which is a direct sequel to 1973’s ‘The Exorcist.’ The film received generally negative reviews from critics but emerged as a commercial success. Green is known for his extensive work in the ‘Halloween’ franchise, directing and producing three of its most recent installments. He also served as an executive producer on shows such as ‘The Righteous Gemstones’ and ‘Dickinson.’

‘Nutcrackers’ is based on a screenplay written by screenwriter Leland Douglas, known for his work on the 2009 family drama movie ‘Call of the Wild.’ The film is set up at Green’s production company, Rough House Pictures, and the director is also expected to serve as an executive producer on the project. Atilla Yucer and Nate Meyer are expected to act as co-producers on the movie. The duo previously collaborated with Green on ‘Halloween,’ ‘Halloween Kills,’ and ‘Halloween Ends.’ ‘Nutcrackers’ currently does not have a known release date.
