Variety is exclusively reporting that Tatiana Maslany and Jasmin Savoy Brown have been cast as the leads for the sci-fi horror film Green Bank.
Green Bank takes place in a real American town where wi-fi, cell service and all other radio transmissions are heavily forbidden. The film focuses on infant sleep-trainer Sloan, who realises that the parents of the child she’s caring for are much more than the clueless yuppies they seem to be.
Josh Ruben, who is directing the film, released a statement saying:
In a marketplace where original, horror-thrillers slay at the box office, we need no further proof that audiences want to have fun at the movies again. That’s the magic word. Fun. Horror is the bulletproof genre, and ‘Green Bank’ has the full package — it’s smart, scary and wickedly funny.
Dave Bishop, CEO of Protagonist Pictures, also released a statement saying:
Josh has envisioned a perfectly paced roller coaster of a horror that expertly delivers on its promise to jolt, thrill, and terrify audiences, all while keeping them grinning from ear to ear. ‘Green Bank’ is wall-to-wall, fright-filled fun led by a fiercely talented cast hailing from beloved franchises. This fresh, subversive take on the genre, which continues to dominate at the box-office, is the perfect offering for our partners.
The film is being written by Aaron Horwitz, who is also producing under his Big Swell Entertainment banner. Protagonist Pictures will be launching international sales at the upcoming European Film Market.
