Shane Brady’s upcoming horror-comedy “Hacked,” starring Chandler Riggs, Owen Atlas, Collin Thompson and Augie Duke, is set to begin production in Los Angeles and Tampa.

The indie film was granted an interim agreement by SAG-AFTRA to begin production amid the union’s ongoing strike.

“Hacked” was partially inspired by true events; producer Emily Zercher and Shane Brady were hacked in 2021, and the first ten minutes of the film are based on their experience. The rest of the film shows “what they wish they could have done to that bastard.”

According to the official logline, “’Hacked’ follows the story of a family who loses everything to a prolific and elusive hacker, aptly named ‘The Chameleon.’ Parents Amy (Augie Duke) and Mark (Shane Brady) have $20,000 stolen, and their kids Ralph (Owen Atlas) and Freddy (Collin Thompson) get their entire digital lives hacked — social media, video game items, even their pointless online homework! When the bank, social media platforms, and law enforcement aren’t able to help, the family takes matters into their own hands.”

The children of the family, who have a passion for murder documentaries, are the only ones capable of taking on the hacker.

Riggs, known for playing Carl in “The Walking Dead,” commented on taking on the role of “The Chameleon”: “This is such a fun story that I can’t wait to be a part of. Shane and his whole team have been so great to work with so far, and I absolutely love indie films like this one. Can’t wait to get back to work!”

The film also stars Hugh Scott, Brittney Escalante, Glenn Stanton and Elyssa Kim.

“Hacked” is writer-director Shane Brady’s second feature, and his second produced by Emily Zercher.
