The Solution Entertainment group will commence EFM sales on the Amanda Seyfried and Theo James supernatural thriller Black Lung for 2929 Productions and Cooper’s Town Productions.
Cary Fukunaga, coming off universal acclaim for True Detective, will serve as executive producer via his Parliament Of Owls, while Chase Palmer will make his feature film debut from his own screenplay.
Production is set to start this summer on the story of a woman whose premonition saves her Utah coal miner husband and leads to the discovery of a malignant force as her intervention stirs up resentment within the community.
James will next be seen in the Divergent sequel, Insurgent, in March while Seyfried stars in summer release Ted 2.
“Black Lung possesses that rare mix of qualities that we as producers dream about,” said Emily Ziff and Sara Murphy of Cooper’s Town Productions. “It’s elegant, sophisticated, and thrillingly commercial with a visionary film-maker and two electrifying actors on board to bring it to the screen.”
“Amanda Seyfried and Theo James are two of the most in demand actors in Hollywood and are the perfect duo to play a couple battling with mysterious forces in Black Lung,” said The Solution co-founders Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel.
