Alice will be a character-driven thriller inspired by the true events of a woman of servitude in 1800’s Georgia, who escapes the 55 acre confines of her captor to discover the shocking reality that exists beyond the tree line…it’s 1973.
Producer Peter Lawson released a statement saying:
Common and Jonny are the perfect addition to our cast on this very special film. Common just brings so much emotional depth to his character, and Jonny is such a standout performer with the intensity he delivers. With both on board, we have no doubt the chemistry between our cast will resonate with audiences around the world.
The film is being written and directed by Krysten Ver Linden, marking her directorial debut. The project is also set to be executive produced by Jose Agustin Valdes and Luisa Fernanda Espinosa of Steel Springs Pictures, with filming set to commence in Georgia sometime in August of this year.
