Matt Smith, Hannah Murray, Odessa Young and Marianne Rendón have joined the cast of Mary Harron’s Charles Manson drama Charlie Says, which Fortitude International is selling at the EFM in Berlin.
The new additions joined previously announced alongside Merritt Wever, Carla Gugino, Kayli Carter, and Suki Waterhouse, who stars in Sundance hit Assassination Nation.
Harron reunites with her American Psycho writing partner Guinevere Turner on the tale of a graduate student sent to teach three young women involved with Manson who had been sentenced to death.
Turner wrote the screenplay based on source material from Ed Sanders’ 1971 best-selling book The Family, as well as The Long Prison Journey Of Leslie Van Houten, written by Karlene Faith.
Roxwell Films’ Jeremy M. Rosen produces with Kevin Shulman. Dana Guerin, Michael Guerin, David Hillary and Ed Sanders serve as executive producers.
“Guinevere Turner’s script brings a fresh and unique perspective to the infamous story of the Manson murders and we have now found the perfect cast to bring it to life,” Harron said.
