Flash-forward to this summer, Vogt-Roberts (seen above on set with Dp Ross Riege) began filming Toy’s House, his directorial debut in Ohio with a cast comprised of Alison Brie, Nick Offerman, Erin Moriarty, Mary Lynn Rajskub and Megan Mullally.

Gist: Written by Chris Galletta, the comedy follows three teen boys who set out to build their own makeshift house in the woods where, soon, everything goes haywire.
