Former Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge is making a sci-fi film. True to brand, the film, entitled Monsters of California, follows a teen who comes across paranormal activities.

“I have been playing this story in my dreams for decades,” DeLonge told Deadline.  “It represents all aspects of my strange existence, including growing up in San Diego suburbia as a disaffected teenage skateboarder.  I had a tight tribe of friends who never missed an opportunity to piss people off and made me laugh so hard I would cry.  The camaraderie, curiosity, angst and irreverence is everything that lead me to Blink-182 and this story is layered with my obsession with the tightly blurred lines between science and science fiction.”

DeLonge co-wrote the film with Ian Miller. So far, the cast includes Richard Kind, Arianne Zucker, Gabrielle Haugh, Casper Van Dien and Sports Illustrated model Camille Kostek. Newbie Jack Samson will star as the film’s protaganist, Dallas Edwards.

DeLonge plans to not only write and direct the film, but he will also provide the score.
