EXCLUSIVE: Robert Halmi, Jr. and Jim Reeve will executive-produce feature now underway in UK.
Frances Ha actress Mickey Sumner has joined April Pearson (Skins), Cian Barry (Nina Forever) and Ruben Crow (Austenland) in horror Caught, which is currently shooting in the UK.
The film tells the story of a journalist couple who invite a man and woman into their idyllic village home, but what begins with an informal interview descends into a nightmarish fight for survival.
Robert Halmi Jr (Olympus) and Jim Reeve (Foyle’s War) are executive producers for Great Point Media, which will also handle world sales.
Jamie Patterson (City Of Dreamers) is directing the script written by Dave Allsop and Alex Francis, from a story developed by Allsop and Clint Langley.
The film is a Gael Films, Dandelion Productions and Castleview Films production, produced by Jeremy Davis, Christina O’Shea-Daly (The Fixer) and Francis.
The feature marks the first for former Maven Pictures senior vice president of development and production Alex Francis – a co-producer on Filth and Moon - under new banner Castleview Films.
The rising Sumner, daughter of pop star Sting and Maven partner Trudie Styler, will be seen in a number of anticipated 2016 titles including Danny Boyle-produced Battle Of The Sexes, Noah Baumbach’s Ye Din Ka Kissa and Doug Liman’s Mena as well as Styler-directed drama Freak Show.
Producer Francis is currently in development on thriller Emergence, which has Troll Hunter director Andre Ovredal attached to direct.
