International sales agent Elephant Eye Films announced the development on Wednesday (12). John McNaughton will direct from a screenplay by Stephen Lancellotti.
Production is underway in Palisades and Brooklyn on The Harvest, a psychological thriller that questions the lengths parents will go to in order to save their only child.
Living Out Loud Productions will finance the project and Kim Jose of Elephant Eye, David Robinson, Steven A Jones and Meadow Williams are the producers.
Charlie Tahan, Natasha Calis, Leslie Lyles and Meadow Williams round out the key cast.
“The Harvest is one of the best scripts I have read since Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer,” said McNaughton.
“Having a genre master like John McNaughton directing two of the most gifted and bold actors of our time could not be more of a perfect combination for our film,” said Jose. “After five years of trying to get this project off the ground, we feel very fortunate to have this creative team in place.”
