Deadline is reporting that Jack O’Connell and Lily Collins are set to star in Hope Dickson Leach’s drama feature The Cradle.
Described as a highly emotional drama, The Cradle focuses on Matt and Marissa who are expecting their first baby at any minute…but Matt is having panic attacks and Marissa wants the nursery to be perfect. So perfect that she needs Matt to track down the cradle she had as an infant. To keep his pregnant wife happy, Matt hits the road unaware of what lies ahead. The discover he makes, however, will change their family forever.
This marks Leach’s second directorial feature after recently writing and directing The Levelling, and has adapted the 2009 novel alongside author Patrick Somerville. Protagonist Pictures are attached to the project, which is launching the project to buyers in Cannes whilst aiming to commence shooting in the summer this year.
