An interesting premise for a slasher movie, it will be set at a gay conversion camp run by Bacon’s character Owen Whistler. The camp aims to “cure” LGBTQ+ teenagers. According to the blurb:

“As the camp’s methods to “turn these kids straight” become increasingly psychologically unsettling and cruel, the queer and trans campers must work together for protection against a mysterious killer who starts claiming victims.”

The cast is filled out by Anna Chlumsky and Carrie Preston with Theo Germaine, Quei Tann, Austin Crute, Monique Kim, Anna Lore, Cooper Koch, and Darwin del Fabro.

John Logan (Skyfall, Penny Dreadful) has written the script and makes his directorial debut. Producers Jason Blum and Michael Aguilar write the checks.

The movie was announced on April 9, 2021 as Whistler Camp with Logan already in place for Blumhouse Productions.

In September 2021, the film became untitled and it was reported that Theo Germaine, Kevin Bacon, Carrie Preston, and Anna Chlumsky had joined the cast.

Bacon and Scott Turner Schofield executive produce. Principal photography with cinematographer Lyn Moncrief began in Atlanta at Camp Rutledge on September 13 2021, under the working title Rejoice.

On October 1, it was announced that the film would premiere on Peacock and that Quei Tann, Austin Crute, Anna Lore, Monique Kim, Cooper Koch, and Darwin del Fabro would also star. On October 13, Blum said he was drawn to making a feature film about conversion therapy following the release of the documentary Pray Away. He also clarified that the idea for the film was conceived entirely by Logan, who wrote it on spec.
