That's a wrap on THE LIFE OF CHUCK. This has been a tenacious little miracle of a movie from the start & I'm forever indebted to this wonderful cast and crew. This film is deeply special to me, and I'm elated that it's going to exist in the world. pic.twitter.com/vnWnuMrOpC

Writer/director Flanagan cast genre veterans Chiwetel Ejiofor (Doctor Strange), Karen Gilian (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Jacob Tremblay (The Toxic Avenger) to join stars Tom Hiddleston (Loki) and Mark Hamill (of Star Wars fame).
King’s published The Life of Chuck contains three separate stories that tell the tale of Charles Krantz in reverse–starting with his death from a brain tumor at age 39 and ending with his childhood in a haunted house.
