On the director's chair sits Marko Mäkilaakso, who also co-wrote the script with Hank Woon. It Came From the Desert is currently in pre-production for an autumn 2015 shoot and 2016 release. Canadian-based Raven Banner Entertainment heads to the EFM in Berlin with worldwide sales rights to the action-horror-comedy film.
