From director Devereux Milburn, the movie is described as a ‘feverish horror’ set in New England, where strange cravings and hallucinations befall a young couple after seeking shelter in the home of an aging farmer and her peculiar son.
Sawyer is Steven and wife Kate Capshaw’s youngest son.
Sawyer made a brief appearance in his father’s 2017 movie The Post and has also tried his hand at directing with a video short titled Breathe in 2016.
Yellow Veil Pictures co-founder Justin Timms said: ‘We are thrilled to introduce Devereux Milburn’s vision to the market at this year’s EFM,

‘With shades of De Palma’s frenetic editing and sound design brought into a modern context, Honeydew immerses you in a nightmare that is sure to satisfy all cravings for a fresh, stylish backwoods horror.’
Milburn added: ‘I’m so excited to team up with YVP, and for the opportunity to find a wider audience for this modern-day Hansel and Gretel story. This piece, in all of its darkness and absurdity, is one that is truly close to my heart and reflective of a real human dilemma, and I can’t wait for people to eat it up.’
Steven and Kate, who married in 1991, have seven children in total, including two adopted children; Theo, 31 and Mikaela, 23.
They share Jessica Capshaw, 40, and Max Spielberg, 31, from previous relationships and Sasha, 29, Sawyer, 27 and Destry, 23, together.
