Former Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge is making his directorial debut with a sci-fi film, Monsters of California.

DeLonge wrote on social media that the film would feature “blink-era dick jokes, skateboarding culture, UFOs and a few sekrets [sic] thrown in.”

The film draws on DeLonge’s well-documented passion for UFOs and aliens. It is based on an original script he wrote with Ian Miller. He is co-producing the film with Creepshow producer The Cartel.

Richard Kind, Casper Van Dien, Arianne Zucker, Gabrielle Haugh, and Sports Illustrated model Camille Kostek are starring in the movie, which will also feature newcomers Jack Samson, Jared Scott and Jack Lancaster.

Monsters of California is a coming of age adventure with a science fiction twist that follows teenager Dallas Edwards, played by actor Samson, and his friends on a quest for the meaning behind a series of mysterious, paranormal events in Southern California. The truths they uncover begin to unravel extraordinary secrets held tightly within the deepest levels of the government.

“The Cartel is thrilled to partner with Tom on his feature film directing debut,” said Stan Spry, founding partner of The Cartel. “Tom is a visionary and an artist who has transcended music, television, business and is now taking the next step into film. It’s an honor to work alongside him to bring such a fun and powerful movie to the world.”
